President Trump Hosts U.N. Security Council for Lunch At White House…

One of President Trump’s greatest strengths is his keen instincts for developing relationships as a strategic tools toward accomplishing consequential objectives. To wit, President Trump invites the entire U.N. Security Council delegation to lunch at the White House.

Now, most of us, myself included, do not think highly of the United Nations as an entity that has ever accomplished anything of worth – beyond pushing an incessant drum-beat of left-wing globalism and ridiculous pie-in-the-sky pontificating.

However, that said, the historic invitation to lunch is quite smartly full-throated use of regional political proximity.  President Trump inviting the U.N Security Council ambassadors to the White House is something Vladimir Putin, or any other leader of consequence, cannot recreate.  The Ambassadors themselves acted more like a group of valedictorian school kids on an outing to where the really important people live.

Important leverage is created through personality, nuance, outline of expectations, proximity and exposure to real power. This is far beyond the mere wordy pontificating power of the attendee’s familiarity, this is structurally deploying leverage of consequence to change paradigms.

[TRANSCRIPT] 11:50 A.M. EDT – THE PRESIDENT:  This is a very, very important and powerful group of people, and it’s really wonderful to have you with us.  And I have to say, welcome to the White House.  It’s a privilege to have all of the ambassadors and their spouses.

You know, they were going to leave out the spouses, and I said, you must bring your spouses.  (Laughter.)  You know, I heard there were a lot of very angry spouses — (laughter) — and this is their first time to the White House.  So it’s a great honor to those of you that brought your wife or spouse.

As you know, the United States holds the presidency of the Security Council this month, and I’m glad that we are continuing the tradition of hosting the Council’s ambassadors in our nation’s capital.  It’s our great honor, believe me.

I want to thank Ambassador Nikki Haley for her outstanding leadership, and for acting as my personal envoy on the Security Council.  She’s doing a good job.  Now, does everybody like Nikki?  Because if you don’t — (laughter) — otherwise, she can easily be replaced.  (Laughter.)

No, we won’t do that, I promise.  We won’t do that.  She’s doing a fantastic job.  And everyone, I see — even as we took pictures before — the friendship that you’ve developed, all of you together.  That’s really a fantastic thing.

The mission of the United Nations and the U.N. Security Council is to maintain international peace and security.  These are important aims and shared interests.  But as we look around the world, it’s clear that there is much work for you to achieve.  You’re going to be very busy people, I suspect, over these coming months and years.

Our nation faces serious and growing threats, and many of them stem from problems that have been unaddressed for far too long.  In fact, the United Nations doesn’t like taking on certain problems.  But I have a feeling that people in this room — and I know for a fact that Nikki feels very, very strongly about taking on problems that really people steered away from.

I encourage the Security Council to come together and take action to counter all of these many threats.  On Syria, the Council failed again this month to respond to Syria’s use of chemical weapons.  A great disappointment; I was very disappointed by that.

The status quo in North Korea is also unacceptable, and the Council must be prepared to impose additional and stronger sanctions on North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile programs.  This is a real threat to the world, whether we want to talk about it or not.  North Korea is a big world problem, and it’s a problem we have to finally solve.  People have put blindfolds on for decades, and now it’s time to solve the problem.

For the United Nations to play an effective role in solving these and other security challenges, big reforms will be required.  In addition, we must also take a close look at the U.N. budget.  Costs have been — 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.

The United States, just one of 193 countries in the U.N., pays for 22 percent of the budget and almost 30 percent of the United Nations peacekeeping, which is unfair.  We need the member states to come together to eliminate inefficiency and bloat, and to ensure that no one nation shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden militarily or financially.  This is only fair to our taxpayers.

I look forward to a productive discussion about our shared role in keeping the peace, advancing reforms, and getting everyone to do their fair share.

I also want to say to you that I have long felt the United Nations is an underperformer but has tremendous potential.  There are those people that think it’s an underperformer and will never perform.

I think — and I think especially I’m so happy with the job that Nikki is doing and our representatives — but Nikki and the group — and I see the relationship that she has already developed.

I think that the United Nations has tremendous potential — tremendous potential — far greater than what I would say any other candidate in the last 30 years would have even thought to say.  I don’t think it’s lived up — I know it hasn’t lived up to the potential.

I mean, I see a day when there’s a conflict where the United Nations, you get together, and you solve the conflict.  You just don’t see the United Nations, like, solving conflicts.  I think that’s going to start happening now.  I can see it.  And the United Nations will get together and solve conflicts.  It won’t be two countries, it will be the United Nations mediating or arbitrating with those countries.

So I see fantastic potential and fantastic things ahead for the United Nations.  And I have to say, it’s a tremendous honor to know you and to meet you.  And Nikki has given me a little briefing on each and every one of you, and I must tell you — I will tell you, you know, I’m a very blunt person, if she didn’t like I would tell you right now — (laughter) — but she gets along with everybody and respects everybody in this room.

I’ll end by saying that — unless you would rather not do it — so we have an office in the White House, you may have heard of it, called the Oval Office.  So what we’ll do is we’ll go down as a group and we’ll take some pictures in the Oval Office.  I know you’ve never seen it.  Nobody seems to get to see the Oval Office very much, but we’re going to show you the Oval Office.  So we’ll go down, take some pictures of the Oval Office, and we’ll have a good luncheon, and we’ll talk about the United Nations and we’ll talk about peace.

Thank you all very much for being here.  It’s a great honor, and I’m glad you brought your spouses.  Thank you.  (Applause.)

END – 11:56 A.M. EDT

    • Of course, and yes 100%… and the fact still remains the UN was born in the US, “sacred principles” and all as hw shrub put it when he told the UN general assembly in 1992 that “it is to the sacred principles enshrined in the UN charter to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance.”

      The UN charter was written by sec of state under fdr. There are no sacred principles to be found in it. It is league of nations 2, the home of GLOBALISM. None of us know what Trump is doing with this one, but if he brings it to heel it will be a great thing. I would prefer it be disbanded, shattered into the winds with the globalist psychopaths chasing it around.

      But we all know it won’t. The globalists are coming… hard and soon. Now is not the time to get all comfy with President Trump saving the day, now is not the time to take an f’ing knee. Now is the time to back Trump and stay in touch with him constantly demanding America first and the end to the false song of globalism he promised us as Candidate Trump.

      • I can agree with much of what you say. But I would be quite blunt and just say the UN must get rid of all the Islamic nations before it will do any great things. Also the commie nations. Best to have a leaner, meaner, team with freedom-loving nations working together to tame some major issues.

        The inclusion of the Islamics in a freedom loving organization is just plain stupid. It’s just inviting the enemy into all of your deliberations, and giving them a vote to boot.

        But we’ll see what Trump has up his sleeve. He is rarely wrong.

      This will be most interesting to see played out, probably for years to come.

      I did not see him getting under her skin! I clearly saw him joking with her and you could see he is very happy with the job she is doing at the UN! Remember, he was the person who “fired” people on the Apprentice! So, I thought he was just throwing that around the room in a fun way!

      I also did not see an embarrassed Haley. I saw them both getting comfortable in their roles, and getting ready to play hardball with those at the table!

      Make no butts about it! Trump bluntly told the UN-SC that the UN was not doing its job and it had to do a better job or their budget will go bye bye! He was very firm and truthful but in a very diplomatic/CEO manner! I love watching him negotiate! ❤

    And a few days ago the UN put Saudi Arabia on the “Women’s Rights Commission”.

      Maybe without them in the UN, it could be a world-wide peace organization.

    I already posted this, but it disappeared.

    President Trump is being consistent with what he said on the campaign trail, about there being a need for an organization like the UN in the world, but not as it is currently operating.

    Jeff Sessions first met Mr. Trump at a Congressional hearing about the UN, where he was very impressed by Trump’s testimony. There’s a video floating around of Trump’s witness at that hearing. He related how he’d put in a bid to do a job for them at a much lower cost than any competitor, and how unprofessional the UN bureaucracy was in turning down the offer.

Plus he offered his services for free and was turned down by the UN! He knows his stuff, I’m so impressed with how he simply explained how to do this reno to people like me who have no clue but I get it. I love that he also brought up the Wollman Rink story! That was a super accomplishment. A 24 hour concrete pour for the floor of the Rink. Concrete trucks backed up all the way to the Bronx. And look at Senator Sessions, he looks enraptured listening to Trump! I feel the same when I listen to him too. Trump is just brilliant! Looks like this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship that has culminated in a President and Attorney General partnership.

From the quality and timeliness of the subcontractors, to the materials, to knowing the architects and government authorities, to knowing the probable costs per square foot, to making schedules, and most interestingly, the same 5% “contingency” which we hoped would not exceed 1%, this was a fabulous introduction to my industry and expertise that Government officials have not a clue! We, too, did numerous “possession” projects. Difficult, but not insurmountable. Thank you for posting!

    He was a great guy and we got along. Anyway, we used to talk a lot about both business and personal stuff and one thing that always stuck with me was that he said sales was all about relationship. You develop relationships with people and that is how you develop business. I see that very clearly with PTrump…he develops a personal relationship with people, has dinner with them and their spouses, gets to know them personally…that’s how he sells what he has to sell and in this case what he has to sell is the best interest of our country and its people. It’s beautiful to watch….and it really works.

    President Trump is doing exactly right. He’s meeting these people and they are meeting him. For practical work they know by having that face-to-face contact, that he isn’t anything what the media makes him out to be. They will have more confidence to not be provoked by the artificial hysterics, know they can pick up the phone and ask him directly if there are confusions or questions. This is priceless.

    Regarding the comments about how useless the UN is.
    Thanks to the Hutu coup-genociders shrewd take-way from what they saw in Somalia, that Bill Clinton would cut and run if they scared him enough, they deliberately rounded up and slaughtered Belgian UN peacekeepers. Clinton did exactly what the Hutus predicted. Despite the Hutu illegal coup and murderous attack on the UN-brokered Hutu-Tutsi power-sharing peace treaty and peacekeeping meant to assist that peace treaty, meaning that the guilty Hutus were 100% deserving of a full international counterattack, without the US leadership in backing the UN at that time, Belgium backed off, all the UN peacekeeping was ordered out, leaving African troops assigned to UN peacekeeping led by Canadian General Dallaire to save whoever they could, by their own initiative, ingenuity and bravery. Those troops should have received the Nobel Peace Prize for the incredible risks they took while they were abandoned.

    Absolutely everyone should watch the video Ghosts of Rwanda or read Dallaire’s gut-wrenching book, Shake Hands with the Devil. Both are devastating. In Ghosts of Rwanda, the faces of the Clinton administration and their verbal gymnastics to find the weasel words to get out of declaring ‘genocide’ is a disgusting display. The UN was established to stop ‘genocide’ so if Clinton had said that key word, all the UN could have been mobilized. It was not. Over 800,000 Rwandans were slaughtered.

    Then consider that by that Clinton inaction, the resulting war spilled into all the neighboring countries – 20 years of extreme atrocities, human tragedy and conflict, still going on today. Most people have never even heard of this, but the UN, sometimes well, many times poorly, but doing more than anyone else, with many many changes of leadership, has been there all this time patching whatever together while it waits for the top leadership to finally get its act together and start real work on real regional political solutions that the decent people of that region have been begging for for decades.

    It’s Africa, it’s so easy to shrug and comfort oneself with lazy stereotypes, but let’s see how anyone else on any continent can get ahead when their town or home keeps getting attacked by vicious, heavily-armed murderous rebel militias – many of them foreigners rampaging through at any time night or day. One lays very low, very blended into nature or one flees.

    Further, UN peacekeeping has several different mandates – most are to monitor agreements, like treaties, not to actually fight. That has to be authorized by UN at the top and many UN member countries refuse to approve that level or operations. So look to the constraints of each specific mandate to find out what the peacekeeping at that place is actually authorized to do. It’ll make a lot more sense, then.

    Remember the Haiti cholera disaster? Nepali troops assigned to the UN inadvertently introduced the Nepali bacteria into Haiti. None of them wanted or intended to do that.
    One gets what one pays for.
    The UN peacekeeping depends on UN member countries providing troops. Compare the roster of member nations supplying troops of 30 years ago versus today. Look at the roster of today’s troop-donating countries – Bangladesh, Nepal… it’s a longer list than that, but with all the sloppiness from discipline,equipment to sanitation they all are known for comes with the package. Developed countries have been reluctant to provide the high-quality troops they are known for. Seen many Belgium troops on UN patrol since that horrible day in Rwanda?

    But who can blame a poor country taking advantage of the subsidy of donating troops to UN missions in Africa that the UN will pay for while they are deployed? The US could assign troops there, but look who’s donating troops – China… for example. Civilian Russian pilots keep up their air hours by flying for the UN while US civilian pilots struggle to find opportunities to fly to keep up theirs.
    Is that the fault of the UN or of the US?

    President Trump is right – regarding the UN, the US has been making terrible deals when it could have been making excellent ones.

        Also be aware that the entire Hutu plan detailing exactly what they planned to do including the planned abduction and murder of the Belgian peacekeepers expressly to intimidate Clinton was leaked to the UN and US months before it happened.
        Yeah, they had everything months ahead of time and did nothing. The Rwandan leaker was rewarded for his efforts to stave off genocide by being unmasked and murdered.
        The people on the ground, both Rwandans and UN peacekeepers were betrayed by the top political leadership far away from danger.

        See? Contractors and other civilians can go out and about, but the military has to report to their barracks, not as free to do whatever.
        yeah the guilty need to go. no question. As mentioned before some donated peacekeeping forces are better disciplined than others – blame the nations that donated them. But it is not fair to blanket accuse all of them and further not notice certain African donated contingents that seem to have a persistence problem with this whereas others have rare or zero incidents. But the UN asks all the member countries, but only some send troops. They’re using what they can get. Again it’s not peacekeeping that fixes that, it’s from the very top that makes the conditions they have to work with.

  30. The main theme that I see throughout Trump’s actions for the past few months is that he’s laying a foundation. Take his speech listed above: he makes it very clear that he doesn’t care about the budget so long as they produce RESULTS.

    Here, as in other areas, he’s taking the time to lay out his expectations and benchmarks for the general (unconnected) public. That way, when he has to take strong actions in the future, he can point back to the times where he outlined the necessary benchmarks.

    Granted, this is method is slower than many of us would prefer, but since the legacy media won’t report fairly, he needs to lay out his case for the public.

When PDJT got in on 1/21 the curtain was pulled back what they thought was a minor boil is a full blown infection. Frankly, Team Trump has been in triage mode trying to undo everyone’s messes and can kicks down the road on the Intl stage so we can have diplomacy and trade and not worry about despots and terrorist.

      Good observation.
      The Developer: laying the foundation, benchmarks, results. Rewards contingent.

      He’s more than ‘The Art of the Deal’ wheeler-dealer. He’s one of the most skilled professional developers ever, anywhere. We’re watching the application of those skills in a different context. Fascinating for us, maybe even shape a new breed of executive congress-critter.

    I’m a very visual person and can’t help scrutinizing pictures. That is one scruffy looking group of UN ambassadors. President Trump has so much class, he looks and acts like a king among cannibals. The only other classy person in that picture is George Washington.

    Trump just grabbed and took over the globalists’ plans for the UN – the same UN that Obama and Clinton planned use to diminish US sovereignty and enact world-wide oppression.

    Trump will turn it about and use the UN to *restore* national sovereignty, sanity and security for the US (and Europe, if Europe is smart).

    Hopefully, Trump will use the UN to deal with Islamic terrorism, to repatriate Islam’s migrant hordes, and reform Islam – make it behave in a civilized manner or lose its place in the civilized world.

    No beating around the bush/obama with political hacks by this President.

    We need to surround NOKO with a coalition of steel and sanctions. NOKO will fall on its own with a sustained push. Include their covert support from Iran. NOKO threats and rhetoric are old news and should be not be overblown or taken out of context. A strike on NOKO will result in millions of casualties and could explode into a global nuclear conflict. China and Russia will get involved not on our side. What are the South Koreans saying? Be careful Mr. Trump, you were not elected to engage us in more wars.

    I love Trump, especially when he uses an opportunity to tell someone that they can be replaced right before he tells them they are doing a great job, haha. Love it! #MAGA
