Sarah Palin called on President-elect Donald Trump Thursday to send a message to the world by leaving the United Nations after the Israel settlement vote.
“Our government, our bureaucrats and our elected leaders, work for us,” the former Alaska governor said during an interview with Breitbart. (RELATED: Sarah Palin Goes Off On #NeverTrump: ‘You’re Either With Us Or Against Us’)
“We are the ones that need to call for this, that the UN shackles be next on the chopping block,” Palin said. “I think many of us have called for America to really step up and consider what it is that we are funding and supporting via the UN, and how it works so hard really against U.S. interests, and just saying–look what the U.K. just did,” as she referred to the Brexit vote.

“One is, I called for our next president, Donald Trump, to call for the unshackling of the political bands tying us to the UN,” she added. “By exiting the UN, where injustice is actually rewarded, we then will be able to uphold America’s reputation as the leader, and as the kind and compassionate and generous nation that we are–as the nation sharing values that, when emulated by any other nation, can bring justice and equal rights to any other nation.”
“So I call upon President-elect Trump to lead that charge,” she continued. “But the other way to look at this is, is it really going to be one person, one leader’s responsibility to do so? Or is this going to be part of the revolution that we have just seen, that did elect Trump?”
“It’s We the People needing to step up and do it. It’s our government. It’s our money funding the lion’s share of the globalist circus. It’s We the People needing to rise up and make this a part of the revolution that we have just so benefited from.”
