The United States is already behind in it’s obligations to the UN. This is just another excuse to not contribute to the work of that international body. The UN has been a vital factor in diplomacy in many areas of the world and been a positive influence for peace. Current efforts to subvert the work of the UN are just another from of destruction Trump and the Republicans are choosing to unleash. The bullying tactics the United States now uses in place of diplomacy will come back to us in ways we do not know nor want.
