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 United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!

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.
