The U.S. withdraws from the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization over its unfair treatment of Israel.

On Thursday, State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert released a statement saying the U.S. will pull out of UNESCO by the end of the year.

Nauert cited a “continuing anti-Israel bias” by the organization as part of the reason the administration decided to withdraw.

She also said UNESCO is in need of fundamental reform.

Israel shortly followed suit announcing it too will be pulling out of the group, and commended the U.S. for standing up on its behalf.

The State Department says it will remain involved with the organization as a non-member.

    America first….right after Israel.

  • Old Phil

    UNESCO is a good start. Get us out of the rest of the UN, rid NYC of the so called “diplomats”, and sanitize the area where the building is to limit disease.

  • Brian MacCrindle

    This UNESCO is run by the very people it is supposed to guard against. I don’t see why our money should be spent on such a corrupt body.

  • Javanne

    UNESCO is anti-Israel? Gee, ya think? Way to go Mr President. Every day, I thank Providence that Hillary and her alt-left peers lost.

  • Chase H

    UNESCO has always been anti-Semitic

  • Racer X

    Maybe President Trump will kick the united nations out of the United States while he is at it.

  • William Everett Hendry bhendry

    The Swamp is everywhere, Mr. President, good going…!

  • Deplorable Dirty Harry

    I can just hear the globalist whining on MSNBC today along with cnn. The money well just went dry!

  • Robert Adams

    Best way to fix the biases in the UN is to start withholding our financial contributions.

  • Nicolet

    Will there still be heritage sites in America?

  • Alice

    YES!

  • Wheel of misfortune

    Good for the USA! And long live ISRAEL!!!

  • Rusty Shackleford

    I guess Americans forgot about the constant espionage against the U.S. orchestrated by Israel, the sales of our priceless military technology to our enemies, or even the attack on the USS Liberty where the Israeli military murdered American sailors…Funny we don’t hear about this or have news media of memorials or anything…Could it be because 3/4 of congressmen go to an Israeli lobbying group every year to get give backs from the billions in aid we unwarrantedly give them?? Could it be because the demographics of every MSM networks are Jewish?? The banks are also controlled by Jewish moguls as is Hollywood. And now in our academia our youth are being taught Marxism,communism…(BOTH JEWISH CONSTRUCTS). We have been subverted and we are no longer a sovereign country, we are at the mercy of shekels and Saudi oil. And to you “Judaeo Christians” you should read the Jewish “Talmud” where like the muslim Koran, Christians are labeled as “animals and slaves”.

    • Wheel of misfortune

      Yep you said it already. You hate Jews. Got it… Now go away to CNN

  • rogeretracy

    Now if he would do the same to the U.N. Hey I’ll take it anyway I can.
    Go, go, go, President Trump

  • Gerry C. Cruz

    There was a lot of US money funneled into that account and islamic entities gradually squatted on it until their majority controlled it.

  • Jane Tarzan

    Does the USA belong to the unHCR?

  • Jane Tarzan

    Really good news. Great Job President Trump.

  • Gerry C. Cruz

    Oh thank God! It’s about time.

    Amazing progress. I would never have dreamed this day would come. Agenda 21 just got shown the door.

      Yes! Well said.

    UNESCO is a subsidiary of the United Nations.
    Why not quit the whole mess and boot them out of our country?

  • fatboy46

    Great move!! ALWAYS support Israel!!

  • Deplorable Phytomorphogenesis

    Next up, the useless unHCR. This agency dumps all MUSLIM “refugees” in countries which have strong Christian and Catholic ties, NOT countries practising islam. Care to explain WHY?
    Out of unHCR.

  • Michael Durkin

    Good, hopefully we have more of this kind of brave leadership from our government.

  • Noel

    I despise the Zionists, the real Jews are okay in my book. I just dislike the UN more than Israel.

    • Wheel of misfortune

      And why do you dislike Israel???

  • ShemSilber2

    That’s ONE step in the right direction. If we had any sense, we never would have gotten mixed up with the UN in the first place, as several of our founding fathers no doubt would have counseled us. The UN is only a one of the pitiful counterfeits of the Kingdom that we will have on earth when the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus) has set His throne in Jerusalem, ISRAEL and restored the Kingdom of United Israel with peace on earth beginning at our eternal capitol city, and with hundreds of millions of the children of Israel both from the House of Yahudah, a very important minority, and the House of Ephraim, the vast majority of those who are presently in the Exile.

    We are going home in a little while, for the Master Yahusha is the Stone that strikes the feet of the statue in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and pulverizes it and fills the earth, and His Kingdom will be the world ruler for all the endless ages, and under Him the saints whom He changes from this short mortality to everlasting life in perfect health and power, amein!

        Thank you. It was found on a pottery shard that was labeled “for the anointing oil,” in connection with James the Just. The menorah represents the first covenant, the fish represents the House of Ephraim, the ten tribes of which the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus) told His disciples, “I will make you fishers of men,” and the base of the menorah and the tail of the fish form Magen (Shield) of David representing that the Master Yahusha ties us both together again.

        He is coming soon to finish doing just that, and we will all be singing, dancing and vigorously worshipping our Yahuwah together, in the pure language, as He tells us in Zephaniah 3:9, amein.

  • semper liber

    The U.N. should be moved to Venezuela where they can enjoy the fruits of their socialist labors.

    • ShemSilber2

      How about the Gobi desert, without shoes, tents, or warm clothing? That should cool their heels, nu?

  • RMCS Ret.

    It’s a start. I’m all for scrapping the UN altogether. Throw their useless butts out of NY and use the real estate for something more useful, like maybe a dump.

    • Bruce

      Yes, pull put of the UN and use the building for a new Trump Tower!

      • Deplorable Dirty Harry

        Bulldoze the place and build a zoo…..oh wait it is a zoo!

    As long as non members don’t pay, then no problem with getting out of unesco…

  • Deplorable Phytomorphogenesis

    unesco is a completely USELESS and UNNECESSARY organization.
    People who work for this group are a bunch of self-righteous and overpaid politicians.
    GREAT WORK, PRESIDENT TRUMP! ^-^

    • Bruce

      Oh!, I thought you were talking about the UN!

      • Deplorable Phytomorphogenesis

        The SAME thing. ^-^
        UN is HOPELESS. If they were useful, there will be NO more war and poverty, and the rogue North Korea would not have threatened her neighbors with nukes.Those muslim countries with oil are exercising more evil power than ever in the UN. Dangerous.
        Why are they sending muslim refugees to Christian countries, and not those nations which practice “the religion of peace”?

        • All American

          Well stated!

      • Mountainhiker

        Rusty your comment is filled with anti-Jewish, anti-Christian lies and hate, you need to get a grip on reality!

        • Rusty Shackleford

          Um how is it “anti-christian”??

        • Rusty Shackleford

          Have you even read the jewish “talmud” where much like the muslim koran says that christians are lesser that of humans and are to be servile to jews??

      • Brian MacCrindle

        Rusty what you posted in called revisionist history. I other words it is history that has been changed to meet a political agenda. Try the truth for a change. After all, the truth shall set you free.

      • Letmesay

        Rusty. ..confirm your blah blah blah….otherwise it will continue to be blah blah blah in my opinion.

    • kaiju

      Thank God, the Muslim Terrorist BHO is out of office and America has another chance to get things right.

      Genesis 12:3 The Lord says to Abram (father of the Israeli nation)
      “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
