I’d much prefer we pay our military appropriately. They do much more than the UN to make the world a better and safer place.

Very possible.

Puts him in NYC, and he can do high paying stints on MSNBC while MooseChelle does The View and Blowprah.

Hey, our credit with China is still good!
Why not borrow more money and give it to UN for a good cause?
We don’t have to pay the debt back!!
Let our kids and grand kids worry about the debt later!

No one is stopping him from using his OWN MONEY to fund anything he wants. He just needs to keep his thieving hands off the American taxpayer dollars. If the UN and other “international groups” want money, they can have a car wash and/or bake sale and raise it themselves.
