Taking Credit for U.N. Budget Cut, Trump’s Envoy Hints at More to Come

Under a formula tied to economic size and other measurements established under an article of the United Nations Charter, the United States is responsible for 22 percent of the United Nations operating budget, the largest contribution. It paid about $1.2 billion of the 2016-2017 budget of $5.4 billion.

The United States also is the largest single financial contributor, at 28.5 percent, to a separate budget for United Nations peacekeeping operations, which totals $6.8 billion in the 2017-2018 budget finalized in June.

Then, as now, Ms. Haley took credit for cuts to that budget, which she said had exceeded $500 million. “We’re only getting started...........

How so? Congress gave Obama a trillion dollars for those shovel ready jobs. We got a few road signs and the Unions got GM. Obama later joked about the con.

That, BTW was a Democrat Congress.

you should really watch cspan sometime when these big projects are debated on the floor.
obama admin had this big agenda on infrastructure. I think when dems were in but may have been John Boehner introduced it or put it on the table.
the teaparty (that is not the tea party) candidates w some old school broke it up and funded some that never happened as I know of and the rest wasnt even talked about.
part of it was redoing power plants and building some new ones. shoring up the leaks in the grid where electricity is lost, as well as roads, bridges and all things infrastructure. also wanted to put some Americans to work on those. so job creator.

I fear Trump's project is going to privatise some roads and we'll have to pay more tolls. not a problem for me but back east truckers and commuters will suffer.
