Trump is looking to slash over half of US funding for UN programs; via the Hill:
The U.S. spends roughly $10 billion annually on the U.N., and the cuts could have the greatest impact on peacekeeping, the U.N. development program and UNICEF, which are funded by State’s Bureau of International Organization Affairs.
As with most things Trump, reactions on Twitter to this cut were mixed:
@thehill awesome the UN is a waste of our tax dollars – let someone else pay for a change

@thehill of course he does. The black cloud over America is growing with each passing day that Trump is in power.

Someone get this gal a tissue.
@thehill He clearly doesn't understand the role the US plays in the rest of the world.

Blah blah blah. Change the record please.
@thehill A good start. Tell UN to look for a new home, next. Nowhere in USA!

@thehill He is on a one man mission to destroy our gov't. I just can't decide if he is doing it for Putin or for Trump.
