Should the Trump administration defund the United Nations? America’s new ambassador to the UN, Nikki R. Haley, minced no words in her first remarks at UN headquarters: “You’re going to see a change in the way [the U.S. does] business. … For those who don’t have our back, we’re taking names.” After observing that “the Security Council is supposed to maintain peace and international security,” Ambassador Haley objected to its ridiculing Israel (“the one true democracy in the Middle East”) while ignoring the recent atrocities of Hezbollah, Syria, North Korea, and Iran. “Instead we will push for action on the real threats we face in the Middle East … It is the UN’s anti-Israel bias that is long overdue for change.”
Try not to stand up and cheer as you watch her four-minute statement.
