Could The UN Put Sanctions On Trump & The US?....

And could the resulting pressure force the Repugs to take out Trump?

I'm listening to AM Joe now and getting more worried and depressed by the minute as they talk about Trump's state of mind.

1. They probably could.

But given Republican antipathy to the UN, why would that pressure them to take action?

2. no

the US is one of 5 countries named as permanent members of the security council and can veto any UN resolution.

However, the general body could go ahead with a vote to express the the will of the world.

Given that we are not (by far) the only nation with a possibly mentally ill dictator (or wannabe dictator), I wonder how many nations would vote for a resolution condemning the US.
