President Trump is not playing the United Nations’ games anymore.
He wants to cut their funding in half — at a minimum.
This would effectively put the rest of the world on par with the United States’ donation rate, leaving it a very level playing field.
The Hill reports:
President Trump’s administration has told the State Department to cut over 50 percent of U.S. funding to United Nations programs, Foreign Policy reported.
The push for the drastic reductions comes as the White House is scheduled to release its 2018 topline budget proposal Thursday, which is expected to include a 37 percent cut to the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) budgets.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has suggested phasing in the major reductions over the coming three years.
One official close the administration told Foreign Policy that Tillerson has flexibility about how best to implement the reduction.
