For 8 years, the Obama administration bowed to the socialist leaders of the United Nations. He tried several times to give the UN powers sovereignty over the United States and the American people, only to have the Senate block those attempts. With Trump in office, UN ambassador Nikki Haley has let the UN know that those days of bowing to them are over and if need be, it will be the US versus the UN and the rest of the world.
An era of relative harmony between the United States and United Nations appears to be coming to an end, as President Trump’s envoy takes on the international body’s inclination toward inaction — and U.N. leaders take swipes at the new administration in Washington.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley made clear last week that her tenure at the New York headquarters would mark a change in tone as she defended U.S. missile strikes against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad following a deadly chemical attack on citizens, including children.
Haley accused the U.N. of “consistently” failing to act on Syria, while also forcing the Security Council into open session when one nation, Bolivia, apparently tried to discuss the strikes in private.
