On June 5, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights issued a statement blasting the Trump administration’s policy of zero tolerance for illegal entry into the United States. The statement ordered our government to “stop criminalizing what should at most be an administrative offense — that of irregular entry or stay in the U.S.”
The UN human rights office accused our government of committing “a serious violation of the rights of the child,” before complaining that the U.S. “is the only country in the world not to have ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.” That’s right, the United States has wisely refused to ratify that dangerous UN treaty since the 1990s, when it was pushed by then-First Lady Hillary Clinton and properly opposed by Phyllis Schlafly.
The Trump administration decided to meet this international abuse head on. On June 19, the U.S. formally withdrew from a related UN agency called the Human Rights Council, whose members include some of the most repressive regimes on earth. Ambassador Nikki Haley denounced the council, which has passed more resolutions to condemn Israel specifically than to condemn Syria, Iran, and North Korea combined, as “an organization that is unworthy of its name.”
Another globalist tribunal which our country declined to join more than 15 years ago is the international criminal court, located in the Hague. That did not stop a clueless protester from shouting at Kirstjen Nielsen, Trump’s Secretary of Homeland Security, that “you belong in the Hague!”
Donald Trump has been winning -- quite handily -- from the hushed halls of the Supreme Court, to the backroads of rural America, to even the world stage. Even in the midst of this onslaught from the U.N. and liberal stooges hunting down his team in public, Trump triumphed throughout June with big wins before the Supreme Court and astounding economic approval polls.
The new liberal strategy of harassing Trump and his officials at every opportunity is backfiring. Particularly on the global front, the harder the Left and the U.N. smears and harasses the Trump team, the stronger they become.
