Chairman Smith on the hearing: “The UNESCO resolution last year that ignored Jewish and Christian ties to the Temple Mount, the U.N. General Assembly vote in December singling out Israeli settlements while minimizing egregious acts of terrorism and the stream of anti-Israel resolutions that regularly emanate from the so-called Human Rights Council are all evidence of a double-standard emblematic of systemic problems that must be addressed at the U.N. This hearing will examine prospects for a new accountability agenda at the U.N. and its agencies, and foster recommendations on how the United States under the Trump Administration can lead on much needed reforms.”

U.S. rep to U.N. Nikki Haley: "For those who don’t have our back, we’re taking names"
"It’s a thrill to be here at the UN. I will tell you that we have hit the ground running. There is a new USUN. We talked to the staff yesterday, and you are going to see a change in the way we do business. It’s no longer about working harder – it’s about working smarter, and we have a fantastic team at the USUN that’s ready to prove that.
Our goal with the administration is to show value at the UN, and the way that we’ll show value is to show our strength, show our voice, have the backs of our allies, and make sure that our allies have our back, as well. For those who don’t have our back, we’re taking names – we will make points to respond to that accordingly. But this is a time of strength, this is a time of action, this is a time of getting things done. And this administration is prepared and ready to go in – to have me go in, look at the UN, and everything that’s working, we’re going to make it better; everything that’s not working, we’re going to try and fix; and anything that seems to be obsolete and not necessary, we’re going to do away with. But this is a time of fresh eyes, new strength, new vision, and a great day at the USUN. Thank you very much."
