WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley will announce on Tuesday that the United Sates is pulling out of the United Nations Human Rights Council, a Trump administration source told Reuters.
The United States is half-way through a three-year term on the main U.N. rights body and had long threatened to quit if it was not reformed, accusing the 47-member Geneva-based body of being anti-Israel.
Reuters reported last week that activists and diplomats said talks with the United States on reforms had failed to meet Washingtons demands, suggesting that the Trump administration would quit.
Washingtons pullout would be the latest U.S. rejection of multilateral engagement after it pulled out of the Paris climate agreement and the Iran nuclear deal.
It also comes as the United States faces intense criticism for detaining children separated from their immigrant parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Raad al-Hussein on Monday called on Washington to halt its

That’s a good first step. Follow it up (immediately) by pulling out of the UN completely.
Then arrest every one of the “diplomats” that have broken the law. Throw the rest out of the country.
Then bulldoze the building. Then build a Trump hotel
You have to violate Human Rights to get on the United Nations Human Rights Council , from looking at the list of countries
Trump is a gift from the Almighty.
Good work! You beat me to it.
Yippee! A fine FIRST STEP at least.
Now, we need to extricate USA out of the entire UnitedNazis Organization, .... quickly!
To HELL with it (which will begin when we evict them from that prime NYC real estate, let that entire nest of enemy spies, moles, and saboteurs go to Iran or Saudi Arabia or...to HELL with it!)
Hopefully this will be accompanied by a commensurate reduction in U.N. funding.
Withdraw completely from this antisemitic nest of corrupt trash, kick them off our shores, and save the dues monies bled from us to BUILD THE WALL!
How about we just go ALL THE WAY and completely withdraw from the UN?
Stay in the UN. Move the UN out of the US. Pay the average of the rest of the Security Council Members.
Follow that up by escorting every U.N. "diplomat" to the shore of the New York River, point them all towards home and tell 'em to swim for their lives.
Shoot any of the bastards that try coming back to shore, then level the U.N. building.
‘Thats a good first step. Follow it up (immediately) by pulling out of the UN completely.’
I hope a WHOLE BUNCH of funding also “pulls out” in this deal.
Convert the UN building to a MAGA building.
In the immortal words of the late Charles Lichenstein...”The members of the U.S. mission to the United Nations will be down at the dockside waving you a fond farewell as you sail off into the sunset.”
Just pull out of the UN - period.
Praise the Lord for President Trump!
