In 2017, President Donald Trump notified the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization head (and lifelong Communist) Irina Bokova that we would leave it at the end of 2018. However, to make certain we stay out, Congress should preserve our independence by withdrawing from the dictators' club, the United Nations.

Trump says he's looking to spend less. We could save at least $8 billion a year by exiting the U.N.

North Dakota's Sen. Bill Langer voted against joining the U.N. because he believed it would erode our sovereignty. He was right. Call President Trump (202-456-1111), Rep. Kevin Cramer (202-225-2611) and Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp (202-224-3121) urging them to get the U.S. out.
