The Heritage Foundation had the honor of hosting Ambassador Nikki Haley, a woman who fights for her country on the world stage, to explain why the United States withdrew from the United Nations Human Rights Council.
The UNHRC consistently fails to thwart human rights violations, Haley said.Â It did nothing to stop member nations like Russia, China, or Venezuela from committing heinous crimes against their people. And America, she declared, isÂ not in the business of â€œreducing human dignity into another instrument of international politics.â€�
Heritage president Kay Coles JamesÂ praised Ambassador Haleyâ€™s strength and courageÂ in holding to her principles as ambassador, and in calling out the UNHRC on their corrupt double standards and hostility towards America and Israel. Her remarks were â€œa true profile in courage.â€�
How will the U.S. continue to advance its human rights agenda outside of the human Rights Council? U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley joins us live to discuss.
