Columnist and Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer slammed the United Nations on national television on Dec. 26, and suggested President-elect Donald Trump dissolve the council for something more useful.
According to The Daily Caller, Krauthammer stated that Trump should disband the U.N. and use the real estate to build Trump condos.
While his statement was mostly satirical, Krauthammer’s point was that the U.N. is not doing any good for the current state of the world.
Krauthammer stated that the U.N. spends “more than half its time and energy and resources and bureaucracy trying to attack the only Jewish state on the planet, a tiny little spec, while genocide, mayhem, murder and terrorism is (sic) going on all over the world.”
“It’s an obsession that, to an outside observer, appears to be insane. Why are we doing this?” He said the U.N. is “undermining the United States and democracy and our allies around the world.” “It is an organization that exacerbates tensions, it does not assuage them.”
Though “it was born in hope, at the end of the Second World War,” Krauthammer argued “it turned out to be a disaster.”
Krauthammer continued that the only reason the U.N. gets any national attention is because of its prime location. If the U.N. “headquarters were in Zimbabwe, the amount of weight and coverage it would get would be zero,” he continued.
Then he dropped a bombshell. “I think that’s good real estate in downtown New York City,” Krauthammer said. “And Trump ought to find a way to put his name on it and turn it into condos.”
