Krauthammer Knows What Trump Can Do With The United Nations: ‘Turn It Into Condos’
Charles Krauthammer has been clear in his disapproval for America’s decision to not veto the United Nation’s resolution on Israeli settlements. The syndicated columnist revisited this topic last night, saying that President-elect Donald Trump already knows how he can put the U.N.’s New York headquarters to better use than it is right now.
On Fox’s Special Report, Krauthammer lamented that the U.S. provides so much to the U.N., yet the organization spends its time “trying to attack the only Jewish state on the planet,” instead of addressing international concerns like genocide and terrorism more.
“It’s an obsession that to an outside observer appears to be insane,” Krauthammer said. “Why are we doing this? And the rest of the time is spend undermining the United States and democracy and our allies around the world.”
Krauthammer went on to say that ever since it was founded after WWII, the U.N. has done more to heighten international tensions than lessen them. Eventually, Krauthammer floated a possibility that would allow Trump to serve as president by calling on his old experience as a real estate developer:
“I think it’s good real estate in downtown New York City. Trump ought to find a way to put his name on it and turn it into condos.”
Trump wanted the resolution vetoed as well, and he has tweeted that it’s “so sad” that the U.N. is “just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time.”
