In early January of 2017, a bill was introduced into Congress to remove the United State’s participation in the United Nations.

The bill would repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, and the bill calls for the President to terminate U.S. membership in the United Nations, including any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body; and closure of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations.

The proposed legislation prohibits the authorization of funds for the U.S. assessed or voluntary contribution to the U.N., the approval of funds for any U.S. contribution to any U.N. military or peacekeeping operation, the expenditure of funds to support the participation of U.S. Armed Forces as part of any U.N. military or peacekeeping operation, U.S. Armed Forces from serving under U.N. command, and diplomatic immunity for U.N. officers or employees.
