President Donald Trump has put his foot down again – on the United Nations. The White House sent a strong signal that it will no longer tolerate the UN’s long record of anti-Israel actions.
President Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations, former Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, moved to block the appointment of former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad as the UN representative to Libya.
The appointment was designed to bolster the legitimacy of the Palestinian’s international clout, which undermines the ongoing peace process with Israel.
The move is part of the Trump administration’s broad range of policy moves to oppose former President Obama’s last minute directives aimed at severing ties with Israel.
