UN has failed to realise its full potential: Trump

UN has failed to realise its full potential: Trump

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Donald Trump, addressing the General Assembly, has pledged his administration's support for the United Nations' reforms.

The US government would be “partners in your work”, Trump told the UN General Assembly at the opening session of the four-day event, according to The Washington Post.

Due to what he called a bloated bureaucracy and mismanagement, Trump believed, the organisation, which was created in 1945, had not realised its full potential in recent years

He said: “We encourage all member states to look at ways to take bold stands at the United Nations with an eye toward changing business as usual and not being beholden to ways of the past which were not working.”

Flanked by his Ambassador Nikki Haley and Secretary General António Guterres, Trump offered this message: "Make the United Nations great. Not again. Make the United Nations great..."
