United States Leaving UN Human Rights Council
“A cesspool of political bias.” That’s how U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley described the organization as she announced a U.S. exit. The move comes a day after the Geneva-based group, which the U.S. joined in 2009, called the policy of family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border “unconscionable.” Haley also said the “hypocritical and self-serving” organization, that includes Saudi Arabia, China and Venezuela as member states, had an unfair focus on Israel. She said the U.S. would consider rejoining if reforms are made.
