The US president-elect has said the United Nations is failing to live up to its potential, heaping further criticism on the body in the wake of a UN vote on the legality of Israeli settlements.
Donald Trump's comments follow Secretary of State John Kerry's speech defending the US decision to abstain from that vote.
"There is such tremendous potential, but [the UN] is not living up [to it]. When do you see the United Nations solving problems? They don't. They cause problems," Mr Trump said.
Trump offered little comment on Kerry's speech, telling reporters that it "spoke for itself", but he has assured Israel that it merely needs to "hang on" until his administration takes over from that of Barack Obama.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has said he is ready to resume peace talks with Israel - if the country halts settlement construction.
On Wednesday, Abbas said he would be prepared to resume talks "within a specific time frame and on the basis of international law."
His comments came after a speech by US Secretary of State John Kerry, outlining America's rationale behind a decision not to veto a UN resolution demanding further Israeli settlement building be halted.
The speech was earlier described by Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu as a "great disappointment".
