UN is a club for people to ‘have a good time’, says Donald Trump

The US President-elect dismisses the United Nations as “just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time”.

Donald Trump has criticised the United Nations days after the world body voted to condemn Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.

The US President-elect said on Twitter that the UN had “such great potential”, but had become “just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!”.

On Friday, Mr Trump, who takes office in just over three weeks, warned: “As to the UN, things will be different after January 20th.”

The decision by the Obama administration to abstain from Friday’s UN vote brushed aside Mr Trump’s demands that the US exercise its Security Council veto and provided a climax to years of icy relations with Israel’s leadership.
