(1) For myriad longstanding reasons, President Trump is withdrawing the US from the 12 year old UN "Human Rights" Council.

The UNHRC has never promoted Human Rights. Only the rights of our enemies, including the global Islamic National Socialism network, Iran & Russia.
(2) #PromisesMadePromisesKept - Expect further changes to US involvement in the UN under this President. It's what he campaigned on, and what American voters wanted. For too long, our adversaries have exploited the UN to work against America and its interests.
(3) The UNHRC:
>protects human rights abusers
>allows them to serve on council
>shows bias in decisions
>enables countries like China, Egypt & Russia to undermine U.S. reform efforts
>has passed more resolutions in 2018 condemning Israel than Iran, Syria & NoKo combined.
(4) National Security Adviser John Bolton opposed the creation of the UNHRC when he served as the US Ambassador to the UN under GWB.

In 2017 the US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley slammed the UNHRC for its “relentless, pathological campaign” against Israel.
(5) Of course, the UNHRC commissioner, Jordanian Prince Zaid, can only respond to Trump's #PrincipledRealism move to leave the Council by attacking his enforcement of the rule of law on the US Southern border. Open borders suits the Council's communist agenda.
(6) Our adversaries are always so ironic at times like these. Whenever WE criticise their "human rights" abuses, we are told not to interfere in domestic affairs.

But when the US government merely enforces its laws and borders, that is condemned by actual human rights abusers.
(7) The UN has long drifted from its original purpose and the Charter signed be member states, importantly the 5 UNSEC permanent members: USA, UK, France, China & the then USSR, now Russia.

Decades of talk of reform are now replaced by the #TrumpDoctrine of #PrincipledRealism.
(8) #AmericaFirst does not, and has never meant, America alone. President Trump is simply enforcing the original agreements that founded the UN: Collective security, human rights, and the promotion of peace.
(9) The same impetus that led to the UN Charter led to the establishment of Israel.

The same animus toward the Jewish people in 1948 has continued ever since through the global Islamic National Socialism network that now dominates the UN generally & the UNHRC in particular.
(10) Those who dominate the UNHRC want to drive Israel into the sea using whatever means they can.

The USA proudly stands with Israel against terrorism, war and Iranian regime imperialism in the Middle East. We stand with the people of Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Iran.
(11) The US, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the 30 Muslim majority countries of the 2017 #RiyadhSummit are ready to create the conditions for peace, finally uniting against the Mullahs of Iran, and their backers in Russia, Germany and wider Europe.

Enough. It is time.
(12) As the President said at the UN General Assembly in 2017, there can be no substitute for "strong, sovereign, independent nations."

Sustained human rights can only be enforced in countries that respect the rule of law.

(13) ADDENDUM: Video of the official announcement:

(14) A good thread by Israeli PM Netanyahu: "Instead of dealing with regimes that systematically violate human rights, the UNHRC obsessively focuses on Israel, the one genuine democracy in the Middle East."

(15) Transcript of remarks by Pompeo and Haley announcing the US withdrawal from the UNHRC.

(16) "The only thing worse than a council that does almost nothing to protect human rights is a council that covers for human rights abuses and is therefore an obstacle to progress and an impediment to change." -Secretary Pompeo
(17) "The United States has no opposition in principle to multilateral bodies working to protect human rights. We desire to work with our allies and partners on this critical objective that reflects America’s commitment to freedom.

But when organizations undermine... "
(18) "... our national interests and our allies, we will not be complicit. When they seek to infringe on our national sovereignty, we will not be silent.
(19) Secretary Pompeo on Ambassador Haley:
(20) Ambassador Haley gave them 12 months to show some sign of improvement.
(21) "[M]y team met with more than 125 member-states... Almost every country we met with agrees with us in principle and behind closed doors that the Human Rights Council needs major, dramatic, systemic changes, yet no other country has had the courage to join our fight." -Haley
