US withdraws from UN Human Rights Council

WASHINGTON — Ambassador Nikki Haley says the United States is withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council, calling it “an organization that is not worthy of its name.”

Haley is President Donald Trump’s envoy to the United Nations. She says a year ago she made clear the US would stay in the council only if “essential reforms were achieved.” She says it’s clear those calls for change were not heeded.

Haley is decrying the membership of countries like China, Cuba and Venezuela that are themselves accused of rights violations. She says the council also has a “chronic bias against Israel.”

But Haley says that if the council does reform, the United States “would be happy to rejoin.”

It is about time, it is none of our countries business how any other country disciplined, or treats its citizens. America needs to be concerned with our own country and people here.

GOOD. As much as these liberals are whining about this, among all the other things they have a tantrum over, someone must remember not that long ago most Americans were saying "get the U.S. out of the U.N. and get the U.N. out of the U.S.

Americans have short, and evidently, selective memories.
