If we're not gonna leave it, then seems like it being an the "best place for us" makes sense. In NYC, the city and state (and Fed I reckon) get to collect a decent amount of trade from all the aliens. Plus, where would be an easier place for the FBI to fully wiretap an embassy? NYC or some island in the middle of nowhere Persian Gulf?

Koel speaks wisdom: we don't want out. If we don't want out, then best to just leave it as it is. Maybe stop paying so much of the tab or demand more in exchange for paying so much.

That still doesn't mean we should continue to foot the bill for all those assholes in the UN. It's as useful as the League Of Nations, and sometimes even counter-productive or infiltrated with corrupt intentions by aforementioned despots & villains. Pretty much useless.. which is a good thing since it can't fuck up too much shit.



Maybe the US withdrawal could be a bit more stealthy:
We significantly reduce our funding and withdraw out participation in the UN but do not withdraw from our permanent Secuity Council seat. Whenever we poke our heads out to utilize our Sec Council veto we toss a few million dollars into the UN kitty.

Lets hope that, just having a pragmatist like Trump in power will effectively predispose this sort of shift in U.S. involvement with the U.N.

I agree with NefKo. Don't leave it. Just don't pay for it. Move the UN HQ to somewhere in northwestern North Dakota while we're at it. In the absence of broadway shows, restaurants, etc, there'd be a sudden spate of unfilled vacancies for positions like "Assistant Deputy Undersecretary to the Liberian Vice-Consul's Briefcase Carrier" and so on.

If you just made the UN diplomats pay their outstanding parking tickets you could fund the US contribution for several years.
