Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shared an ominous video Thursday afternoon on Twitter that showed U.S. President-elect Donald Trump inconspicuously signaling what lay ahead for the United Nations.
“I’m very strong on Israel,” Trump said in the first part of the clip, which according to The Washington Post was captured during a news briefing Wednesday at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. “I think that Israel has been treated very, very unfairly by a lot of different people. If you look at resolutions in the United Nation … they are up for 20 reprimands.”
“When do you see the United Nations solving problems?” he then asked in the second half of the clip. “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.”

While those sounded like simple factual observations, couple them with the newfound movement by congressional Republicans to defund the U.N and with Trump’s recent tweet that “things will be different” after Jan. 20, and the statements take on a whole new light.
The case could be made that the president-elect had essentially revealed his plan for the United Nations, which from the sounds of it was to “drain the swamp” by either defunding it out of existence or somehow ridding it of its more notorious elements.
Either way, something needed to change, as the U.N. has over time become a corrupt vessel for dictators and tyrants that, according to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, needed to be jackhammered and sent packing..
“I think we ought to get jackhammers and we ought to jackhammer the whole thing off, float it into the East River,” he said Tuesday morning on Fox News. “Ask anybody who would like to host it, to come pick it up, haul it off. And it will be a lot easier to park in Manhattan after we get rid of it.”

Huckabee had the right idea, and from the sounds of it, so does President-elect Trump.
