Trump considering removing the USA from the UN

Mr Trump would be even less indulgent towards America’s multilateral obligations. Asked whether, on the basis of his coruscating criticisms of the United Nations, which he called fat, sloppy and inactive, he would consider withdrawing America from that organisation, he says: “You always have to be prepared to walk or you can never get anything done. And that means walking from countries, in terms of defence, it means walking.”

No one could be more appalled by Mr Trump’s success than the leaders of his own party, most of whom are free-traders and national-security hawks, and all of whom want to win in November. That explains the enthusiasm many Republican bosses and donors showed for the Stop Trump movement. Despite a growing probability that Mr Trump would be their champion, they poured over $5m into television and radio spots supporting Mr Cruz or denigrating Mr Trump in Indiana. (Mr Trump spent less than $1m.)
