U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Thursday dismissed a poverty report by the United Nations, saying it’s “ridiculous” for the intergovernmental body to analyze American poverty.
Haley said in a letter to Communist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).”It is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America,” she went to say “The Special Rapporteur wasted the UN’s time and resources, deflecting attention from the world’s worst human rights abusers and focusing instead on the wealthiest and freest country in the world.”
Sanders quickly responded to Haley, saying he believes “it is totally appropriate” for the United Nations to publish a report on poverty in America.
“I hope you will agree that in a nation in which the top three people own more wealth than the bottom half, we can and must do much better than that,” Sanders wrote in his reply.
Sanders, along with several Democratic lawmakers in both chambers, earlier this month sent a letter to Haley asking her to show President Trump the conclusions of the report published by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights.
The Leftist report by the UN said American democracy “is being steadily undermined” and provided several suggestions for how to alleviate poverty in the U.S. The recommendations said American citizens must realize taxes “are in their interest” and that the U.S. “must recognize a right to health care.” all Leftist talking points being pushed by Democrats and Communists like Sanders.
