Skip to comments.US set to announce departure from UN Human Rights Council: reports
Posted on 06/19/2018 11:37:28 AM PDT by Olog-hai
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley will tell the organization on Tuesday evening at a joint press conference in Washington that their nation plans to leave its main human rights body, UN officials have confirmed.
The announcement would come just one day after the UNHRC condemned the Trump administration for its policy of separating children from the families at the US-Mexico border.
Haley had already threatened the exit, citing concerns that the council is biased against Israel. She said that the UNHRC was a forum for politics, hypocrisy and evasion, that included major human rights violators such as Venezuela, Cuba, China, Burundi and Saudi Arabia. [ ]
Human Rights Watch slammed the move, with executive director Kenneth Roth bemoaning the vacuum the lack of US leadership will leave: The Trump administrations withdrawal is a sad reflection of its one-dimensional human rights policy: defending Israeli abuses from criticism takes precedence above all else.

Does that include money ?
US out of UN
UN out of US
GOOD..now get out of the UN, otherwise known as the Jew hating council, altogether
This is lonnnnnng overdue. MAGA!
Human Rights Council.
One of the most mis-named bodies ever formed.
Has it actually happened yet? It’s now about Noon, Pacific Time.
Won’t be satisfied until the U.S. departs form the UN...and then kicks them off our soil.
“will tell the organization on Tuesday evening at a joint press conference”
And what good has U.S. leadership done?
More Libtard heads explode. Winning.
The UN has always been rotten. We need it like we need cancer. Away with it!
UN out of the US is an idea I like but since we have a veto on the security console it would be foolish to get completely out of the UN.
Not just that; but, many of these children were sent,by their own parents, alone on this trip. Sent with human smugglers, drug smugglers and gang members. The U.S. Detention Centers are probably the safest places they have been in months.
Why? Why do we need to belong to the Security Council anymore than any other part of the sovereignty-sapping UN? The UN is no good...period.
Stay in the UN, just kick them the hell out to Switzerland
UN should be happy, there will be less travel time for all those ME & African dictators
Then the UN needs to be destroyed. Cutting this abomination loose to cause us trouble as an independent entity would mean another expensive enemy to deal with.
