OUCH! Let’s hope some reform will happen once Trump is in the Oval Office. If he keeps up this mind set, you can almost bet that there will be.

President-elect Donald Trump says the United Nations is failing to deliver on its promise of positive global cooperation.
“There is such tremendous potential, but it is not living up,” he told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., according to pool reports. “When do you see the United Nations solving problems? They don’t. They cause problems.”
“So, if it lives up to its potential, it’s a great thing,” Trump added when asked if the U.S. should leave 71-year-old organization. “And if it doesn’t, it’s a waste of time and money.”
Trump has repeatedly attacked the U.N.’s credibility since its Security Council passed a resolution last week demanding an end to Israeli settlement building in occupied territories.
The president-elect on Monday blasted the institution’s effectiveness, dismissing it on Twitter as “just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time.”
