PRESIDENT Donald Trump is taking his inauguration promise to put ‘America first’ seriously with Republicans submitting a new bill to pull the US out of the United Nations.

Proposed by congressman Mike Rogers, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act also seeks a complete withdrawal from membership of the World Health Organisation.

And Republicans have even demanded the UN remove its headquarters from New York in a shocking blow to global relations.

Doing so would mean repealing the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, which was enacted just months after the end of World War II.

But the new President seems intent on honouring his commitment to protect US sovereignty, in a move reminiscent of the UK’s vote to leave the European Union.

Quietly introduced on January 3, the act was quickly passed on to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, where it has been sponsored by at least half a dozen supporters including Missouri Representative Jason Smith.

The bill reads: “The President shall terminate all membership by the United States in the United Nations in any organ, specialised agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations…

“The United States Mission to the United Nations is closed. Any remaining functions of such office shall not be carried out.”
