Former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton Tuesday applauded cuts to the United Nations budget, saying they are a "real opportunity" for President Donald Trump's administration to rethink the United States' share of what it contributes to the world agency and possibly even pulling out of the U.N. Human Rights Council.
"There are plenty of parts of the U.N. system that don't deserve any U.S. funding, let alone a cut," Bolton told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program. "I think if the administration really wants to review what the options are available to us, they should think about having the U.S. in the international taxation [plan] that burdens us with a 22 percent share of most U.N. budgets, and move toward voluntary contributions."
If other countries follow, he added, "it would be like a tsunami through the U.N. system," Bolton said.
Meanwhile, Bolton said he also believes the United States should withdraw from the U.N. Human Rights Council, and "totally defund it."

Only in the DC Swamp is a person considered toxic for being competent, telling the truth, and following through on his promises — Trump, Bossie, Bolton. #Bolton4SoS
He’s a worn old shoe. Yes he has good ideas — mainly UN ideas, but the UN is not the daily story
Bolton does have good ideas. Just remember that they were Trump ideas first.
The U.N. Human Rights Council is ALL about spreading homosexual degeneracy through the entire world.
Whenever you hear them discussing “human rights”, they’re really talking about the right of homosexuals to sodomize your children.
Sounds like Newt. He is correct. But money is fungible, and it's difficult to direct a foreign agency, even one headquartered in NYC, how to fung their money.
Bolton, Gingrich. Not to suggest the President isn't serious about cleaning up, even draining the swamp. But these are two that should have a role.
