“Damn straight, lets give this prime piece of American real estate to someone who actually loves America. Get the U.S. out of the U.N., and the U.N. out of the U.S.It's nothing new for Higgins; his campaign website expresses his belief that the United Nations has grown "too big for their britches" and, once again, refers to its New York location in terms of real estate value:
The U.N. is filled with nations that hate us and yet we give them billions of American dollars. As far as I’m concerned.. they can hate us for free.
Meanwhile, the Chinese have been building islands in the Pacific. That’s a great spot for the left to hang out with their U.N. Comrades.”
Captain Clay Higgins
Higgins is no stranger to the social media limelight; he was forced to apologize in July after he recorded a five-minute quasi-political YouTube video inside a gas chamber at Poland's Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum.
The UN has grown too powerful. Our sovereignty as a nation is constantly compromised, again and again, through UN operations. I’m not a supporter of disbanding the United Nations. I think it is good to have a designated arena for diplomatic endeavors and meetings. However, I would support measures to greatly scale back funding for and participation in UN operations. They’ve grown too big for their britches over there, and they’re sitting on super prime US real estate.
