The Trump administration plans to announce Tuesday the United States’ departure from the United Nations Human Rights Council. U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley threatened the withdrawal last year, complaining that the 47-member council was biased against Israel. She warned the United States would leave the council if it did not end its systematic scrutiny of Israel and alleged Israeli rights abuses against Palestinians.
