On his way out the door, former President Barack Obama just couldn’t help himself.
According to a report, he yanked a final $9.2 billion from taxpayer pockets and handed it over to the United Nations.
If you’re one of the 122 million U.S. income taxpayers, that means Obama wrote a nearly $76 check to the U.N. in your name last year to fund his globalist agenda.
Don’t expect a thank you note, either.
“The total is gleaned from a document that summarizes U.S. government spending for international organizations, and is about 20 per cent higher than the $7.7 billion figure given out by State for 2010, before the Obama Administration abruptly quit providing any overall tally for its U.N. support,” Fox News reports. “The overall U.S. bill for international organizations of every stripe is just under $10.5 billion, meaning that U.N. organizations absorb about 88 per cent of such U.S. government spending.”
How did the U.N. respond? By insulting President Donald Trump.
Following Trump’s idea of safe zones as a substitute for resettling refugees in the United States and elsewhere around the globe, the U.N.’s top official on refugees pushed back.
“Let’s not waste time planning safe zones that will not be set up because they will not be safe for people to go back,” said Filippo Grandi, the U.N. High Commissioner on Refugees.
What a strange way to say thanks…
