Trump Re-Ups Criticism Of United Nations, Saying It’s Causing Problems, Not Solving Them


President-elect Donald Trump continued to berate the United Nations on Wednesday, saying the organization is causing problems rather than solving them and that it will be “a waste of time and money” if it doesn’t start living up to its potential.

Trump was asked by a reporter if he wants the United States to leave the 71-year-old institution. The president-elected stopped short of endorsing such a move but heaped additional criticism on an organization that two days earlier he said had become ” just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time.”

“There is such tremendous potential, but it is not living up,” Trump told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. “When do you see the United Nations solving problems? They don’t. They cause problems.”

“So, if it lives up to the potential, it’s a great thing,” Trump added. “And if it doesn’t, it’s a waste of time and money.”

Trump has been harshly critical of the U.N. in the wake of last week’s adoption of a Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Trump had advocated for the United States to block the move.

Instead, President Barack Obama instructed U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power to abstain from voting, on the grounds that the Israeli government’s continued support for expanding Jewish settlements in Palestinian territory could undermine any prospect of eventually reaching a two-state solution to the simmering conflict.

    וְאִם-עַד-אֵלֶּה–לֹא תִשְׁמְעוּ, לִי: וְיָסַפְתִּי לְיַסְּרָה אֶתְכֶם, שֶׁבַע עַל-חַטֹּאתֵיכֶם, וְשָׁבַרְתִּי, אֶת-גְּאוֹן עֻזְּכֶם
    וְאִם-תֵּלְכוּ עִמִּי “קֶרִי”, וְלֹא תֹאבוּ לִשְׁמֹעַ לִי–וְיָסַפְתִּי עֲלֵיכֶם מַכָּה, שֶׁבַע כְּחַטֹּאתֵיכֶם. וְהִשְׁלַחְתִּי בָכֶם אֶת-חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה, וְשִׁכְּלָה אֶתְכֶם, וְהִכְרִיתָה אֶת-בְּהֶמְתְּכֶם, וְהִמְעִיטָה אֶתְכֶם; וְנָשַׁמּוּ, דַּרְכֵיכֶם. וְאִם-בְּאֵלֶּה–לֹא תִוָּסְרוּ, לִי; וַהֲלַכְתֶּם עִמִּי, “קֶרִי”. וְהָלַכְתִּי אַף-אֲנִי עִמָּכֶם, בְּ”קֶרִי”; וְהִכֵּיתִי אֶתְכֶם גַּם-אָנִי, שֶׁבַע עַל-חַטֹּאתֵיכֶם. וגומר

    וְאִם-בְּזֹאת–לֹא תִשְׁמְעוּ, לִי; וַהֲלַכְתֶּם עִמִּי, בְּ”קֶרִי”. וְהָלַכְתִּי עִמָּכֶם, בַּחֲמַת-“קֶרִי”; וְיִסַּרְתִּי אֶתְכֶם אַף-אָנִי, שֶׁבַע עַל-חַטֹּאתֵיכֶם. וַאֲכַלְתֶּם, בְּשַׂר בְּנֵיכֶם; וּבְשַׂר בְּנֹתֵיכֶם, תֹּאכֵלוּ. וְהִשְׁמַדְתִּי אֶת-בָּמֹתֵיכֶם, וְהִכְרַתִּי אֶת-חַמָּנֵיכֶם, וְנָתַתִּי אֶת-פִּגְרֵיכֶם, עַל-פִּגְרֵי גִּלּוּלֵיכֶם; וְגָעֲלָה נַפְשִׁי, אֶתְכֶם. לא וְנָתַתִּי אֶת-עָרֵיכֶם חָרְבָּה, וַהֲשִׁמּוֹתִי אֶת-מִקְדְּשֵׁיכֶם; וְלֹא אָרִיחַ, בְּרֵיחַ נִיחֹחֲכֶם. וַהֲשִׁמֹּתִי אֲנִי, אֶת-הָאָרֶץ; וְשָׁמְמוּ עָלֶיהָ אֹיְבֵיכֶם, הַיֹּשְׁבִים בָּהּ

    This is a clear message from Hahsem that if we don’t do Teshuva, Hashem will go against us (punish us) with the ANGER of “קרי” KERRI g-d forbid. The Torah uses the word Kerry “קרי” to show Hashem’s anger Chas VeSholom.

    Please before it’s to late lets wake up on this Chanukah day and get closer to Hashem each and every one in their own way. Its not funny to see Hashem sending us clear messages all the time and we ignore them, we don’t change we don’t seem to become better Yidden…. Because if we continue it might hit the fan and explode at us Chas VeSholom, very soon it might be to late.
