It’s called the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017 and would repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, close the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, and cut all funding.
Obviously, the legislation introduced by Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama hasn’t gone anywhere, but it has picked up nine co-sponsors in Congress, all of them Republicans. And with Nikki Haley resigning from her position as U.N. Ambassador, what better time to shut the whole thing down?
Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky revived the legislation with a tweet Wednesday:

Agreed, but if it has to be somebody, I still say Dennis Rodman is the man for the moment.

Thank you! Good golly, I thought I was going crazy in trying to tell my Colorado delegation that it wasn't too long ago that the #Republican party stood for a complete withdrawal from the UN. I couldn't figure out why they were pumping up the UN so much.

great idea … withdraw from UN and start charging them RENT

I concur. First, get the US out of the UN. Second, throw the UN out of the US. Give them one week to pack their shit and leave.

The UN is a mockery of what it was created for. We should have no part of it.
