Trump's Ominous Warning To The UN: "Things Will Be Different After Jan. 20th"

Tyler Durden's picture

Following today's surprising decision by the US' Samantha Power to abstain in a UN vote over Israel settlements, one which provoked Israel to lash out at the Obama administration  "friends don't act that way", but more importantly defied Trump who in a previous tweet urged Obama to veto the resolution, it was only a question of how long before Trump tweets his response. The time was less than an hour, because just minutes after the vote, the president-elect slammed the current administration's decision, while ominously warning the UN that it would be "different" under his presidency.

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th," Trump tweeted Friday.

As a reminder, the U.S. had the ability to veto any resolution but abstained from doing so, despite pressure from Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and U.S. lawmakers on both sides. Furthermore, the administration’s decision to let it pass represents a break from the longstanding U.S. policy of shielding Israel from U.N. reproaches.

To be sure, there is another side to the story, with Israel’s settlements have long been seen by critics as human rights violations as an obstacle to achieving peace between Israel and the Palestinians. In any case, Trump pressured Obama before the U.N. vote to veto the resolution.

"As the United States has long maintained, peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties, and not through the imposition of terms by the United Nations,” the president-elect said in a statement Thursday. "This puts Israel in a very poor negotiating position and is extremely unfair to all Israelis."

Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., explained the move in a statement to the council, condemning Netanyahu for continuing settlement expansion while paying lip service to the idea of a two-state solution.

“One cannot simultaneously champion expanding Israeli settlements and champion a viable two-state solution that would end the conflict,” she said. “One has to make a choice between settlements and separation.”

Noting Trump's curious engagement, Glenn Greenwald tweeted moments ago that "It is rather bizarre that Trump, after running on "America First," wants to isolate US from the entire world to defend Israeli occupation..."

Meanwhile, Israel's PM Netanyahu said that his country would not abide by the UN resolution's terms, which he rejected as "shameful", prompting questions if Israel is now a "rogue" UN member nation...

... and leading to a direct face off between Trump and Obama on the topic of Israel.

No matter who is right or wrong on this particular issue, however, the UN may want to start scoping out leases in neighboring buildings, because if Trump is indeed as angry as his tweet suggests, the UN building in midtown Manhattan may soon find itself looking for new tennants.

This headline gave me hope that he was going to tell the UN to fuck off and that the US would stop wasting our time and money on it. But nope, just coming to the defense of Israel. Fuck. I feel dumb for thinking it would be otherwise.

Get it out of the USA. The existing buildings can be renovated and used for a productive purpose. 

Just get it out of here ASAP.

Close this monstrosity and move it from NYC to Geneva.

That's a waste of some fine real estate to host a bunch of dictators and their representatives.

Let's face it... The UN is not much more than a "What's For Lunch" club.   Because "Lunch" is the main topic on most delegates minds.

END the UN in America!

Defund them completely.  Shut those scumbags down...they can go fuck off and set up in Brussels or some other fucked up NWO enclave, but no more on U.S. soil.

Then Mr. T. can either WTC-7 the UN building or turn it into a fucking casino for all I care.

Nothing but a cadre of enemies, traitors, drug and human sex traffickers, and other various types of sociopaths and psychopaths.

END all that UNESCO bullshit too.  No American land should be pledged to belong to these or any other NWO scumbags. 

That's how he should start out with those motherfuckers.  Take away all diplomatic immunity to them and then tell 'em they have 24 hours to get outta town or end up in a Super Max prison cell.

NWO assassinated U.N. Sec. Gen. 1953-1961 Dag Hammarskjold...

Researchers say many key players in the region, including white minority governments, had clashed with Hammarskjold, whose U.N peacekeepers had been battling Belgian-backed separatists in the mineral-rich Congolese province of Katanga. Days before Hammarskjold’s death, the U.N. launched an offensive against Katanga’s separatists as part of an effort to drive hundreds of Belgian officers and European mercenaries out of the country.

The U.N. leader was advocating for Congo’s full independence, while Belgium, with some support from Britain, the United States, and South Africa, wanted to ensure that Katanga’s riches –­­ which included the uranium ore used in the production of the atomic weapons dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki­­ — remained in friendly hands and out of the reach of the Soviet Union. Several months earlier, the CIA had played a role in the assassination by Belgian officers and Katangese separatists of Congolese liberation leader, Patrice Lumumba, who was suspected of moving too closely to the Soviet Union.

I lived near the UN for awhile and it's non-stop partying for these policians away from home, and I mean EXPENSIVE partees on their taxpayers' money. It was sad to see some of these fat cats from poverty stricken nations living it up so extravanagntly while their citizens back home are dying like flies.

In any case, the UN is a huge waste of money the way it's organized right now. I am not sure if it can be changed. The fact it did not stop Bush's Iraq war or the many other conflicts around the world is proof.

Those UN fuckers live tax free.  Literally.  'On mission' they are rapists and thieves.  At the mothership in NYC, they are coke-whores who fail even to pay their parking tickets.  And then there is their white elephant post office, which drains cash off the USPS like a tick on a dog's balls.  There is at least 1 building in the world I cheer for the Islamists to blow up.  . .

I was hoping he meant an anti Agenda 21, you're irrelevant to anyone but Soros & Co., STFU & get out of our country.

Instead he meant Israel is still the 51st state.

Only a brainwashed libtard asshat would whine about Donald Trump's stance with the UN and then falsely claim that Israel is all about apartheid and genocide when it has almost 2 million Muslims in small country of 8 million and it's surrounded by countries that wish to destroy anyone who isn't Muslim.

It's ISLAMISTS and the radical left that can't H I D E from A P A R T H E I D and G E N O C I D E

BTW, if you are a taxpayer, why aren't you whining the billions that have been given to Islamic terrorist groups like Hamas?

HopefulCynic's picture

This is so fucking funny, another "exceptional" deluded pseudo right-wingger, chastising about the rough treatment in the minds of others towards Israel. 

 

I seriously don't give a fuck if we destroy the whole ME but that must include Israel, because I for one are not going to live the #1 mastermind of terrorism in the ME alive and well. If KSA goes down, so must it's partner Israel. Fuck all of them, the Talmudists an the Qoran lovers, they are all evil and indoctrinated, there is very little difference between the Talmudists and the Islamists, except that one controls the other. 

 

As per HAMAS, just like many other terrorist groups, ISRAEL DID DO IT, this is very well know, and has been for years, so if you want to destroy HAMAS, which I agree with, you must also agree that who ever is holding the leash, must be destroyed as well, unless you are a freaking (((Khazar))) which seems you are:

And if you believe like the MOSSAD exclaims that they lost control, you must be really retarded and also believe in the Holocaust Myth. Since no fucking rocket ever kills anyone, and every attack is used for PR purposes and more land grab.

 

Oh and BTW around (((80%))) ARE RADICAL LEFT, hmmm I wonder why, but I also wonder why you defend the (((LEFT))) Which you supposedly deplore like your average Neo-con that are leftists by their own admission and sources.

By March-Apr. 2017,  Americans, even ones who voted for Trump, will be so pissed off with this POS and his policies "By Zionist Billionaires and exclusively for Zionist Billionaires" that a Phase II America wakening will take place.

Good many people liked Obama regardless what but there will be very few if any who still will support Trump in a very near future.

I'd rather see it filled with the Usual UN Criminals, nail the doors shut and push the entire structure into the East River.  It's the only way you can be sure.

Oh right!!!.  I just read that the NY Times was looking for space.  What a classy address for them.

Oooooops.  Strike that.  The NY Times is trying to lease out its space.  They be downsizing.  They wouldn't want to move into the UN building and retain thier current digs.

But maybe the UN would rent them a few floors because it will be downsizing for sure.  That way the Times could get out of its current building completely.  And then the Times would be closer to its true readership and be better able to create fake news for Jorge Soros.  Trump could make then current Times building a snowflake museum with special puppy petting rooms at $500 per hour.  Have Huma down there 24/7 signing autographs. 

The Rockettes will be downsizing as well, but only by one.

Jan 20th can't get here quick enough.

The UN is a project of the Rockefeller/CFR. Most of the US delegates to the UN Organizing Conference in 1945 were CFR members, including Nelson Rockefeller, John F. Dulles, Alger Hiss, and Cordell Hull, Roosevelt's Sec of State. The CFR controlled State Dept drafted the plans for the UN organization during WW2:

"Shortly after the outbreak of World War II, Secretary Hull proposed the formation of a new world organization in which the United States would participate after the war. To accomplish this aim, in 1941 Hull formed the Advisory Committee on Postwar Foreign Policy. It was composed of both Republicans and Democrats... Hull argued for an international structure rather than a system of regional groups, a plan that eventually prevailed. By August, 1943, the State Department drafted a document titled Charter of the United Nations, which became the basis for proposals submitted by the United States at the 1944 Dumbarton Oaks Conference."
