President-elect Donald Trump is already making threats against the entire world and he’s not even president yet.
He’s also telling President Obama how to do his job in one of the strangest moments between the current president and the billionaire turned demagogue president-elect.
Trump is livid at the United Nations for a resolution they just passed condemning Israel’s settlements in Occupied Palestine.
Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and its thievery of their land has the majority of the world community labeling it an apartheid state. Yet, the United States still gives Israel almost $4 billion a year in so-called aid.
In a stunning rebuke of the U.S.’s growing disgust with the country for its horrendous violations of international law, President Obama allowed the resolution to pass by abstaining on the vote. The U.S. has veto power and could have torpedoed the resolution.
President-elect Trump, who supports Israel’s gross human rights violations, was in an uproar. He had called on President Obama not to support any resolutions condemning Israel at the United Nations. Here’s what he tweeted after the resolution’s passage.
As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.

Trump’s close friend Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu also began threatening countries supporting the resolution and attacking President Obama. Here’s the statement that Israel’s Prime Minister’s Bureau released about the United States and its president:
“The Obama administration not only failed to protect Israel against this gang-up at the UN, it colluded with it behind the scenes. Israel looks forward to working with President-elect Trump and with all our friends in Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike, to negate the harmful effects of this absurd resolution.”
In yet another striking example of Trump supporting a foreign leader over his own president (Putin is another example), Trump continues his outlandish and treacherous behavior. However, in the same manner that the world has united against Israel’s draconian and absurd treatment of the Palestinians, Americans will also unite to ensure that Trump’s fascism is curtailed right here in America.
