(CNSNews.com) - Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly today, President Donald Trump said that “major portions of the world…are going to hell.”

The president made the observation during a part of his speech in which he highlighted the fact that although there are 193 nations in the U.N., the U.S. pays 22 percent of the organizations budget.

“In fact, we pay far more than anybody realizes,” Trump said.

“Major portions of the world are in conflict and some, in fact, are going to hell,” he said.

“But the powerful people in this room, under the guidance and auspices of the United Nations, can solve many of these vicious and complex problems.”

Here is the section of Trump’s speech where he discussed the U.S. funding of the U.N. and his belief that major portions of the world “are going to hell:”

The United States is one out of 193 countries in the United Nations, and yet we pay 22 percent of the entire budget and more. In fact, we pay far more than anybody realizes. The United States bears an unfair cost burden, but, to be fair, if it could actually accomplish all of its stated goals, especially the goal of peace, this investment would easily be well worth it.

Major portions of the world are in conflict and some, in fact, are going to hell. But the powerful people in this room, under the guidance and auspices of the United Nations, can solve many of these vicious and complex problems.

The American people hope that one day soon the United Nations can be a much more accountable and effective advocate for human dignity and freedom around the world. In the meantime, we believe that no nation should have to bear a disproportionate share of the burden, militarily or financially. Nations of the world must take a greater role in promoting secure and prosperous societies in their own regions.
