new york - US President Donald Trump says the United Nations (UN) is sinking into bureaucracy and mismanagement.
The World Organization's budget has increased by 140 percent since 2000 and the number of employees has doubled since then, said Trump Monday in New York at a UN reform meeting.
'The results do not match these investments,' added Trump. According to United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, 128 of the 192 member states have signed a political declaration of intent before the meeting. It urges UN Secretary-General António Guterres to 'increase transparency and predictability of the resources needed' in the organization. 'Change is urgently needed,' said Haley.
