The Trump administration is poised to announce its exit from the United Nations’ main rights body, the UN Human Rights Council. The announcement is due to be made by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley. Haley threatened the pull-out last year, citing longstanding U.S. complaints that the council is biased against Israel. Tuesday’s announcement comes a day after the UN human rights chief denounced the U.S. for separating migrant children from their parents.
