    So sad....

    Last week, the Trump administration defunded the United Nations Population Fund, the largest international maternal health organization on the planet, which provides family planning and reproductive health services in more than 150 countries. This includes emergency obstetric care, midwife training, and fistula repair.

    Last year, the United States' contribution of $69 million--or the price of roughly 35 taxpayer-funded weekends at Mar a Lago--helped prevent roughly 10,000 maternal deaths and 100,000 unsafe abortions.

    The people who elected President Trump don't want to pay for abortions in China. And btw, we're broke from decades of over-spending and doling out foreign aid. It's time to stop being the world's ATM.

    The man is doing just what he promised that he would do if elected. He said that he would cut spending. Maybe the Democrats can keep a list of this and then come out saying they will spend money on each of these things if they get the presidency back. People who want to pay it will vote their way.

    a. The program didn't cover abortions in China
    b. If we are too broke to provide foreign aid, then we are too broke to pay for weekly 3 million dollar vacations.
    c. You really need to understand the purpose of providing foreign aid to other countries.

    You don't KNOW SHIT! IF the funding, that BUSH CUT out too, is the same that TRUMP just cut, then you'll have to explain to me how one gets an abortion from the list of items in a BIRTH KIT below? Maybe the new mommy takes the last item, cuts it up into pieces and STRANGLES the baby to death? Sure that's it...

    A birth kit is a simple solution to help make childbirth more safe and decreased the risk of infection to the mother and the baby.

    (1) 1-gallon “zip-lock” plastic bag, in which all other items will be placed.
    (1) one-meter (approximately one-yard) square piece of heavy-gauge plastic 4 mil thick – to be spread under the birthing mother;
    (3) pairs examination gloves – to protect mother, baby and helper
    (1) bar soap (hotel-size is fine) or one small container anti-bacterial waterless cleaning gel –
    (3) 12 inch long pieces of cotton string or nylon cord – to tie off umbilical cord.
    (1) new single-edge razor blade (make sure sharp side is safely covered) – to cut the umbilical cord.
    (4-8) sterile gauze pads or surgical sponges (4” x 4” or approximate) – in case bleeding occurs
    (1) receiving blanket – 30”x 30” or 32”x 32” size

    I'm not running the country, Trump is. I support this move. We should stop funding the UN completely and tell them to leave. That's 8 billion dollars a year. Brussels is where the UN should be, not here.

    article:
    The state department said it was withholding $32.5m in funding for the fiscal year of 2017 because the UNFPA "supports, or participates in the management of, a programme of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilisation". The cut marks US President Donald Trump's first move to curtail funding for the United Nations and is likely to raise further questions about how deep those cuts will eventually go throughout the organisation, where the United States is the top donor. It comes after Trump in January reinstated the so-called Mexico City Policy that withholds US funding for international organisations that perform abortions or provide information about abortion.

    Except he and his family are costing taxpayers a fortune. He is not really saving money. He is just using the money cuts on valuable and important programs to pay for his luxury lifestyle.

    About what Donny The Dumbfuck spent to send 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria to accomplish little to nothing. Sad isn't a stong enough word.

    You don't KNOW SHIT. The UN sits in NYC and has sovereignty over the dirt and the building. IT'S NOT OURS and we can't make them to leave! Although, maybe Trump could have the building bombed, get the ruble cleared and pick up the property cheap for a new TRUMP TOWER. His sons could execute the deal so his hands would be 'clean'.
