President Trump gave the world leaders this week a huge message when he made his first visit to the U.N. as commander-in-chief: “Make the United Nations Great.”
Just like Trump did on his campaign trial, he stressed that other countries should step up and help the U.N. with financial and military contributions.
Reminding them that the U.S. covers 22% of the U.N. budget.
According to usatoday:
Trump’s appearance at the U.N. will be highly scrutinized, especially given the disputes over trade, climate change, and NATO participation that ensued during previous international summits.
In preparing for his week-long series of U.N. meetings, Trump’s major objective is to rally global support for pressuring North Korea into giving up nuclear weapons – or at least stop threatening to use them against the United States and its allies in Asia.
While Trump and his aides said they want to resolve the dispute diplomatically, they have also suggested there could be a military option. Over the weekend, Trump added to the tension by describing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as “Rocket Man.”
Many White House officials are out and about in New York this week.
Gary Cohn, director of the National Economic Council, attended an “energy breakfast” with U.N. counterparts.
During the meeting, the White House said, Cohn repeated statements by other aides that the United States will maintain plans to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement unless it can negotiate more favorable terms.
“This position was made very clear during the breakfast,” the White House said in a statement.
President Trump told the U.N. that no country shall “shoulder a disproportionate share of the burden and that’s military or financially.”

President Trump said that we must ensure no country has to “shoulder a disproportionate share of the burden.”
Wow. Did he finally tell the U.N. straight to their smirking faces that it’s time for them to stop making the U.S. take a “disproportionate” share of the burden.
Share this everywhere if you think Trump is right.
We need to make this country great again and we need to make the world great again and start paying their part for all the protection that the United States provides.
