Krauthammer: Trump Should Turn the UN into Condos

Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer told Bret Baier on Tuesday that President-elect Trump should turn the United Nations building in New York City into condos. Krauthammer’s remarks follow the Obama administration’s alarming decision to abstain on a vote at the UN Security Council that urges Israel to stop building settlements on its land.

“This is very serious damage that cannot be undone because you can’t change a Security Council resolution without the acquiescence of the Russians and the Chinese, and you’re not gonna get it,” Krauthammer said.

He described the UN as spending “more than half its time and energy and resources and bureaucracy trying to attack the only Jewish state on the planet, a tiny little spec, while genocide, mayhem, murder and terrorism is going on all over the world.”

“It’s an obsession that, to an outside observer, appears to be insane,” he continued. “Why are we doing this?”

Krauthammer said that if the UN “headquarters were in Zimbabwe, the amount of weight and coverage it would get would be zero.”

“I think that’s good real estate in downtown New York City,” he joked. “And Trump ought to find a way to put his name on it and turn it into condos.”
