Sen. Kamala Harris has an interesting view on what constitutes U.S. leadership on the world stage.
In response to a recent report that the U.S. is preparing to leave the U.N. Human Rights Council over its anti-Israel bias (Israel is the only country listed as a permanent agenda item for UNHRC meetings), the California senator seems to believe the country is committing a moral failure.
Make no mistake — this Administration is abdicating our country’s moral leadership. https://t.co/W4N85q0Vqo

Granted, the goal of the U.N. body is “strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe,” one might wonder why the senator thinks we should defer our decision-making to these council members and serial human rights abusers.
The Trump administration announced its intention of withdrawing from the council earlier Tuesday, blasting the UN human rights organization for ignoring months of escalating terror attacks on Israeli settlements from inside Gaza.
