Why America Wins By Slashing UN Budget
The United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nicki Haley, announced that the United States would be cutting U.N. funding by $285 million for the fiscal year of 2018 to 2019, which is a significant drop in funding.
She pointed out in her statement that the U.N. is known for overspending and inefficient use of funds and that it would no longer fall to the American people. Ultimately, the decision to cut funding to the U.N. will help America by saving money and limiting American engagement in activities that are inappropriate for the nation.
A key benefit of the U.N. budget cut is the monetary savings. America funds nearly 22 percent of the U.N. budget each year, and shoulders the burden of nearly 28 percent of the peacekeeping efforts of the United Nations. Despite the significant funding from America, the decisions made in the U.N. involve 193 nations. By cutting the U.N. budget, it will force the nations to take a closer look at their spending.
Although the savings allow American tax dollars to go toward other projects and programs to benefit the American citizens, it also allows America to take a step back in relation to U.N. engagement in inappropriate activities for the nation.
Since the U.N. does not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, it contradicts President Trump’s decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem, and attempts to control the actions of the United States. By cutting the budget and informing the U.N. that they are not the ones making decisions for the United States, it is helping to cut back on U.S. engagement in peacekeeping activities that run counter to the goals and interest of the American people.
The decision to cut the U.N. budget benefits the American people by reducing unnecessary spending and limiting American involvement in world conflicts. It also sends a message to the U.N. that their inappropriate decisions and actions in relation to the will of the American people will not be tolerated or funded by America.
