After eight years of continuous lectures from a president who viewed the people he was elected to serve as selfish, racist, and a host of other negatives, while singing the United Nations’s hosannas, we have a leader who gets his priorities straight.

In his first appearance at the U.N., President Donald Trump, who has long criticized that organization as causing problems rather than solving them, remained true to form. Instead of apologizing for his constituents, the president slammed the U.N. for failing to live up to its “potential” and urged member nations to reject “business as usual” and take “bold stands.”

From the New York Post:

In recent years, the United Nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement.

[…]

We seek a United Nations that regains the trust of people from around the world. In order to achieve this, the UN must hold every level of management accountable, protect whistle-blowers and focus on results rather than on process.

We encourage all member states to look at ways to take bold stands at the United Nations with an eye toward changing business as usual and not being beholden to ways of the past, which were not working.

Here is a video clip of part of the five-minute address:
