Donald Trump Calls UN ‘Sad’ Following Anti-Israel Resolution
TEL AVIV – Three days after the UN Security Council passed an anti-Israel resolution, President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter to declare the international institution “sad” and “just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time.”
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!

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also been heavily critical of the UN, saying on Saturday that Israel will re-assess its UN ties after the approval of a Security Council resolution demanding an end to Israeli construction in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem.
