This video from the USA says about itself:
21 January 2017
According to Dutch NOS TV today, Donald Trump’s mouthpiece in the United Nations has said the United States Trump administration is dissatisfied with the United Nations Humans Right Council. And may withdraw from it.
In that council, apart from the USA, 46 member states are represented. Which one of these has angered Trump so much that he may want to quit, like he is quitting from the Paris climate agreement? Which country has made Trump so angry that he does not want the USA to be in the same council with them, as he says: ‘Either they get out, or the USA gets out’?
Maybe Germany, because German cars are sold in the USA? Trump is very much against that, but in this case, his UN mouthpiece did not mention that.
Paraguay, where women’s rights are violated constantly? Paraguay, because the democratically elected president was removed there by a coup which empowered a corrupt new administration? No, Trump and his supporters do not mind attacks on democracy at all.
Brazil, because the democratically elected president was removed there by a coup which empowered a corrupt new administration? No, Trump does not mind attacks on democracy at all. He does not mind corruption either.
Hungary, because the far right Viktor Orban regime attacks media freedom, attacks an American university’s right to exist and ill-treats refugees from NATO’s wars? No, Trump loves Orban’s border policies of razor wire, going back to Berlin Wall days.
Japan, because its right-wing government includes supporters of Adolf Hitler’s nazi regime? No, Hitler said ‘Make Germany great again’, so Trump does not really mind Hitler sympathies. The only thing Trump is unhappy about concerning Japan’s far-right government is that it does not yet have nuclear weapons.
Qatar, because of the many workers dying there at work? No, Trump does not mind. Maybe he will become anti-Qatar now that his Saudi royal cronies have a conflict with the Qatari ruling family. But in this case, his UN mouthpiece did not mention that.
South Korea? Maybe, because its new president is not enthusiastic about Trump’s scheme for THAAD military escalation. But in this case, Trump’s UN mouthpiece did not mention that.
Tunisia, because its government has dared to tell the home truth that ISIS terror now kills in Libya, Tunisia and elsewhere because of NATO’s 2011 war on Libya? Maybe. But in this case, Trump’s UN mouthpiece did not mention that.
Is Donald Trump angry at United Nations Human Rights Council member state the United Kingdom? Is it either they out of the Council, or the USA? The British people don’t want Trump there on a state visit. But its Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump’s poodle on climate destruction and on other issues, has invited him. So, Trump thinks, better wait with demanding that the United Nations Human Rights Council should expel the United Kingdom till Ms May maybe loses the 8 June general election.
The United Arab Emirates? No, that is an absolute monarchy which would never ever nationalize Trump Towers or Trump Hotels. And they help the Saudi regime in its war on the civilians of Yemen; a war which Trump supports. So, they’re all right.
Saudi Arabia? No, that is another absolute monarchy which would never ever nationalize Trump Towers or Trump Hotels. They are the only country in the world where people are beheaded; beheaded on spurious charges, for atheism, or for demonstrating for democracy, etc. etc. They are the only country in the world where women are flogged and/or jailed for driving cars. But never mind, Donald Trump’s USA helped the Saudi regime get into the United Nations Human Rights Council. And into the Women’s Rights Commission as well. With help from Trump’s poodles, Theresa May’s United Kingdom. And with help from Belgium and other NATO military alliance members as well. No, Trump is not going to be angry about the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia being in the Human Rights Council, as the US government helped them get in. And he told the monarchy he did not mind their beheadings, so their numbers went up.
After all these Human Rights Council member states which apparently did not cause Trump’s anger, let us go now to the only member state which did cause his anger. Venezuela. Trump’s ‘Charlie McCarthy‘ in the UN named Venezuela as a country where supposedly human rights are violated; so, it should be expelled from the council. Venezuela has, indeed, ‘violated’ the right of ExxonMobil and other Big Oil corporations to exploit Venezuela’s oil for their own profits. So, the Trump administration, especially ExxonMobil boss and Trump Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, want regime change in Venezuela. That would probably bring democracy in Venezuela to the level of the torturing and killing Pinochet regime in Chile. But Trump, Trump’s ‘Charlie McCarthy’ in the UN and Rex Tillerson would then welcome Venezuela back into the Human Rights Council, maybe sitting next to Saudi Arabia.
