Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday criticized the U.N. Human Rights Council, after the controversial organization passed a resolution criticizing the state of policing and race in the U.S. -- even as it is accused of ignoring egregious human rights violations from those on the council itself.
The United Nations Human Rights Council, now comprised of Venezuela and recently, Cuba and China, has long been and remains a haven for dictators and democracies that indulge them, Pompeo said in a statement. It is a grave disappointment to those genuinely seeking to advance human dignity. Even so, the Councils decision to vote yesterday on a resolution focusing on policing and race in the United States marks a new low.
The Council, which the U.S. left in 2018 over concerns over both its membership and its anti-Israel bias, passed by unanimous consent on Friday a resolution on the promotion and protection of the human rights and fundamental freedoms of Africans and of people of African descent against police brutality and other violations of human rights.

UN needs to go to a like minded country like Venezula.
Since we are paying the Piper (UN), why aren’t we calling the tunes?
Lack of balls.
It is time for the US to move the UN out of the United States and limit its contribution to the average of those on the Security Council.
WTF are we still in the UN?
are you kidding me?
Probably one of the most racist places on earth.
are we still funding them? Pull funding- if so- they are an anti-Semite, anti-American organization anyways- they are the real racists-
U.S. out of the UN, UN out of the U.S!!!
It was a unanimous decision. Why doesn’t he mention all the countries, like those who are our supposed allies.
We spend $10B a year on the UN. We should cut federal spending by that $10B, in addition to other cuts.
TIME TO DEFUND to let deadbeats pay for their own Propaganda Mill ???
We could better use the $10B on the border wall and folks to man it.
