Nikki Haley just gave a blistering speech calling out the UN bureaucrats. The august body has turned into a cesspool of corruption and needs to be reformed.
Nikki, following Trump’s orders, did just that striking the first blow today by pulling the US out of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).
From The Daily Wire:
On Tuesday evening, the U.S. officially announced our withdrawal from the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). In doing so, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley blasted the council for scapegoating nations with clean human rights records (clearly signaling our support for Israel) and propping up human rights abusers whose regimes go without scrutiny.
“Human rights abusers continue to serve and be elected to the council. The worst most inhuman regimes continue to escape scrutiny,” slammed Haley. “And the council continues the politicizing and scapegoating of countries with positive human rights records in an attempt to distract from the abusers and their ranks.”
Continuing, the no-nonsense ambassador announced our official withdrawal: “Therefore, as we said we would do a year ago if we did not see any progress, the United States is officially withdrawing from the U.N. Human Rights Council,” she said. “In doing so, I want to make it crystal clear that this step is not a retreat from human rights commitments; on the contrary, we take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain apart of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights.”
