Congress Takes Action To Defund U.N.
President Barack Obama has been acting like a bull in a china shop with his last days in office. He has been wreaking havoc like there's no tomorrow, and, thankfully, for him soon there won't be, at least not in office. His latest move that was met with global outrage was when he completely betrayed Israel and expected no sort of recourse.
