The significance of this cut is being wildly overblown.
From The Hill:
The U.S. Mission to the United Nations announced Sunday that it negotiated a major reduction in the U.N.'s budget for the upcoming fiscal years.That's a cut of less than 10 percent.
It's not clear where these cuts were made, but the majority of their funding is going to train some 80,000-90,000 soldiers, which they call "peacekeepers," in Africa, Haiti and the Middle East, and that's on top of other programs providing billions in aid.
Despite these billions, the West is being inundated with "refugees" from all these countries constantly. The question is whether or not cutting the budget will increase the migrant flow outward.
According to Oxford professor Paul Collier, helping refugees locally is 135 times cheaper than helping them in the West.
