National Security Adviser John Bolton has informed the United Nations that the United States will discontinue support of peacekeeping missions that are wasteful.

According to Town Hall:

During his speech at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., National Security Adviser John Bolton said the United States would no longer support United Nations peacekeeping missions that lack focus and are wasteful.

Having served as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. under President George W. Bush, Bolton’s speech was to outline President Donald Trump’s administration’s Africa Strategy.

"The United States will no longer provide indiscriminate assistance across the entire continent, without focus or prioritization and we will no longer support unproductive, unsuccessful, and unaccountable U.N. peacekeeping missions. We want something more to show for Americans' hard-earned taxpayer dollars,” Bolton said.

"Our objective is to resolve conflicts, not freeze them in perpetuity," he added.

Bolton went on to say that while Americans are generous we also expect to get returns on our investments abroad.
