Pres. Trump: The UN Is 'Underperformer' But Has 'Tremendous Potential'

President Trump talked with the ambassadors of all the UN Security Council countries and seemed both praiseful and dismissive of the United Nations. It’s a little unclear whether he likes the UN or not. He called the international body an “underperformer,” but also said this:

Costs have absolutely gone out of control. But I will say this– If we do a great job, I care much less about the budget, because you’re talking about peanuts compared to the important work you’re doing. You really are. You’re talking about the most important things ever. And I must say, I’m a budget person. You see the way I’m talking about NATO, the same thing; but if you do a great job at the United Nations, I feel much differently about it because we’re talking pennies compared to the kind of lives and money that you’ll be saving.

And the president said, “I think that the United Nations has tremendous potential.”
