    YES! This is wonderful news. After the UN’s end-run gun confiscation scheme I have been of the mind that the UN needs the US a lot more then we need them. I am tired of being the UN’s sugar daddy. MAGA!

    Mitch McConnell will table it once it gets to the senate if Paul Ryan doesn't quash from the beginning.

    That means the UN will be run by the Commie side of the house. I'm not sure I want out , I just want it moved to another country and the rest of the world to pay their share.

    Of course it's not going to go anywhere.

    As has already been mentioned, do we really want the UN to be completely taken over by the Socialist, Communist, Dictatorship and Theocracy countries, who will then try to gang up on the non-member USA somewhere down the road?

    It would be interesting to see the headquarters moved to another country, though. How about Africa? Venezuela? Yemen? Syria? India? China? Why not? :p We've had it long enough. Time for someone else to have a turn, right?

    Another bill that, if passed, wouldn't really change a thing. The U.S. has always been a sovereign nation, subject to foreign treaties only if ratified by 2/3 of the Senate (Article II, Section 2, paragraph 2).
    If the U.S. leaves the U.N., I seriously doubt other countries are going to gang up on us or associate in any meaningful way. Just look at the E.U. That experiment is starting to unravel.
    I vote for Somalia. See if their parking tickets go unpaid there.

    I would love to see the USA pull out of this corrupt org. For me UN stands for Usually Nothing or Usual Nonsense. IMHO this org does absolutely nothing for the USA. Get it out of NYC and give the buildings to the homeless. I further believe the UN is just a plain threat to our freedoms.

    I could go along with that if both conditions were to be met, AND if the US were to remove our signature from the UN’s small arms treaty that was signed by O.

    It will get about as far as the Rosenstein impeachment.
    Nowhere but campaign ads

    Nothing says MAGA like handing global power and influence over to the Russians and Chinese. [\sarcasam]

    I’m not against pulling out of the UN but I say start w/ significantly reducing funds to them, maybe evicting them from NYC and then see how they behave.
