Trump Says UN 'Just A Club For People' To 'Have A Good Time'

Andrew Harnik

Donald Trump on Monday blasted the United Nations, calling it "a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time," a few days after the UN Security Council voted to condemn Israeli settlements in the West Bank with the United States abstaining from the vote.

The tweet from Trump follows criticism of the UN vote on Israel, after which he tweeted that "things will be different after Jan. 20th" and called the vote a "big loss" for Israel.

Trump also called on the United States to veto the vote before it took place and spoke with Egypt's president, Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, about the resolution.
