Sarah Palin Urges the US to Leave the United Nations

The former vice presidential candidate weighs in on Brexit.

In the immediate aftermath of the landmark vote in which Britain has decided to leave the European Union, Sarah Palin—once the governor of Alaska and real life vice presidential candidate—is suggesting the United States takes similar steps to leave the United Nations.

“It is time to dissolve political bands that connect us to agendas not in our best interest,” she concluded. “May UN shackles be next on the chopping block.”

Palin’s advice comes amid plummeting international stocks, a 30-year low for the Sterling, and admissions of empty campaign promises from prominent Brexit advocates.
