Trump pulls U.S. out of United Nations Human Rights Council

In late June 2018 Trump took yet another cruel and reckless action to violate international human rights and make the U.S. a “rogue nation.”  He withdrew the U.S. from the United Nations Human Rights Council.

This very short article announced it but did not say much:  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/6/19/1773487/-The-US-announces-that-it-will-leave-the-U-N-Human-Rights-Council?detail=emaildkre

This article says more.  It says Trump pulled the U.S. out because the U.N. Human Rights Council criticized Israel’s government.  Israel and a right-wing Republican senator from South Carolina praised Trump’s move, but China and various world leaders expressed disappointment, said Trump’s move hurts peace, etc.:  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-06-19/trump-is-said-ready-to-pull-u-s-from-un-s-human-rights-council

The following article says more.  It mentions the U.S.’s violations of human rights by kidnapping and imprisoning children at the U.S.-Mexico border.  It reports that the U.N.’s High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein said that policy is “unconscionable.”  Under Trump, the U.S. has failed to support human rights, so Trump has given a green light to other nations to violate human rights.  The article also reports that “When the Council was created in 2006, U.S. President George W. Bush’s administration shunned the body.”
