President Trump his tough. His inaugural address at the United Address was peppered with strong language and bald criticisms. Obama the bland gave a variation of the same boring, predictable speech presidents usually give.
“In recent years, the United Nations (UN) has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement, ” Trump said Monday.
“We seek a United Nations that regains the trust of people from around the world… In order to achieve this, the UN must hold every level of management accountable, protect whistle-blowers and focus on results rather than on process.”
Trump will be remembered for the way he upended the status quo. The UN has been plugging along and doing things the exact same way for over seven decades. Trump wasn’t willing to go along with the lie for a single meeting.
“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,” he said.
“I am confident that if we work together and champion truly bold reforms, the United Nations will emerge as a stronger, more effective, more just and greater force for peace and harmony in the world.”
