Cruz and Graham Team Up to Block Taxpayer Dollars from Going to UN

Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) teamed up on Thursday to introduce a law that would block taxpayer dollars from going toward the UN, in response to the anti-Israel Resolution 2334 passed by the Security Council last month.

Speaking on MSNBC on Thursday, Graham and Cruz said the resolution passed last month, which the United States abstained from, was a step too far in attacking Israel and must be undone.

Graham stated:

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

“Twenty-two percent of the money to fund the UN comes from the American taxpayer. I don’t think it’s a good investment for the American taxpayer to give money to an organization that condemns the only democracy in the Middle East.”

Immediately after the resolution was passed, Cruz had called on the United States to withhold funding to the global body until it reverses its decision.

The best way to mitigate that damage is to get the resolution undone, and the Republican Senators said they believe the easiest way to do that is to stop paying for the UN.

Cruz also stated:
“If you cut off their money, that gets their attention and I think we’ve got real prospects of seeing this thing moved through Congress.”
