A president with a backbone: Trump admin set to boycott UN Council over anti-Israel agenda

We’re not in Obamaland anymore, Toto.

The Trump administration will reportedly boycott the United Nation’s Human Rights Council because of the entity’s anti-Israel agenda.

The Washington Free Beacon learned from senior administrations officials that the U.S. will not attend a Monday meeting were member countries are poised to adopt at least five anti-Israel resolutions.

The Trump administration is said to be outraged over what was described as the council’s unjust bias against the Jewish state, the online news source reported.

More from the Free Beacon:

Trump administration officials said the increased pressure on the U.N. is part of a larger effort by U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley to significantly reform the international organization and root out those who use it as a platform to push anti-Israel initiatives.

On Monday, the UNHRC is set to consider an agenda known as the “human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories.” It is said to include several anti-Israel declarations that the Trump administration fiercely objects to.

Senior Trump administration officials who spoke to the Free Beacon said the upcoming resolutions affirm the U.N.’s unacceptable bias against Israel, which remains the only member nation that has specific agenda items aimed against it.


Unlike the previous administration in its closing days, the Trump administration will vote against “every resolution” targeting Israel and encourage our allies to follow suit.

“The argument that the U.S. has to participate in bodies like the United Nations Human Rights Council or risk losing our influence over it is ridiculous,” a senior administration official said.

“The UNHRC is, like its predecessor, morally bankrupt and the only good news is that its actions have little practical effect in the real world,” the official continued. “We’ve wasted enough time and money on it.”

A sentiment sure to be supported by many Americans.
