Not even 24 hours after Christmas Day had ended, President-elect Donald Trump was back at it again on Twitter, this time attacking President Barack Obama and the United Nations.
While Trump has become infamous for attacking Obama (and basically everyone else) on social media, the United Nations is certainly a new target for the incoming Commander in Chief as of late. Trump’s criticism of the United Nations began after the international organization called for an end to Israeli settlements (which the United States abstained from voting on). After the vote, Trump tweeted:
The big loss … for Israel in the United Nations will make it much harder to negotiate peace. Too bad, but we will get it done anyway!”
Trump also warned the United Nations that “things will be different after January 20th”.
Now, Trump has continued his attacks on the United Nations, referring to the organization as a “club” for people to “have a good time.” He tweeted:
The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!”
This tweet came just after Trump slammed President Barack Obama after Obama stated that he would have beaten Trump in the election if he’d been allowed to run for a third term. On top of his criticism of Obama for not having the United States vote on the United Nations resolution, Trump tweeted:
President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY! – jobs leaving, ISIS, Ocare, etc.”
Every single American – besides Trump – knows that Obama would have destroyed Trump in the election, but Trump is completely delusional and oblivious to his historically low approval rating in comparison to Obama’s soaring approval rating.
Trump’s comments on Obama and the United Nations are disgraceful and completely unbecoming of a future president. Trump only has a few short weeks until he begins his term, but he’s spending the majority of his transition making enemies and pissing off the major organizations he’s going to have to work with. This is not a good way to start at all, and it’s making America’s future look bleak.
