US Withdraws from UN Human Rights Council

US Withdraws from UN Human Rights Council

Yesterday afternoon the UN Human Rights commissioner called out Donald Trump and his inhumane “zero-tolerance” immigration policies, and more importantly the fact that children are being punished for their parent’s actions.

“In the United States, I’m deeply concerned by recently adopted policies which punish children for their parents’ actions … The thought that any State would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable.”

Today the Trump administration has done the unthinkable. Just a few moments ago the Trump administration announced that the US was withdrawing from the United Nation Human Rights Council.

Perhaps Trump wants retaliation for the UN Human Rights commissioner’s comments, or maybe Trump has literally just lost his mind. Trumps excuse however cites anti-Israel bias among their reasons for withdrawing.

Following the announcement of Trump’s administrations decision to withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council, an outpoor of dissatisfaction with the announcement was heard around the world.
