UN human rights chief watching US under Trump ‘very closely’

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein warned last year that Mr Trump’s election could be dangerous for the world.

Speaking to reporters in Geneva on Monday, Mr Zeid said he had noticed a “change in some of the rhetoric” since Mr Trump assumed office, and expressed hope that the American leader’s worrisome campaign trail rhetoric on issues like torture would “dissipate”.

    Does anyone remember the “report” given on Canada’s “food security”, by the UN special reporter Olivier Schutter? It was hilarious. Here was this skinny, bespeckled long-nosed geek, from Belgium no less, spewing ultra-left-wing drivel, trashing our country’s food supply. The corporate media lapped his drool up, of course.

      I remember that fucking asshole.
      He’s lucky for two reasons.
      I need my job and I never got in the same room as him.
      I’m not sending my son over there to save their bacon the next time.

    Perhaps, Mr Zeid has come to know that he had better “change his own rhetoric” in the Hope that the USA will continue to ‘butter his bread’.
    Maybe, Mr Zeid has read the “Art of the Deal” and now realizes that Trump is NOT a Justin and doesn’t give a ‘ good goddamn’ about this farce called the UN.

    When did the United States cease to be a sovereign nation and be answerable to the want-to-be world government called the UN?

        Only Rosie O’Donnell, I mean, until 11/08/2016.

      In January of 1989, when Shrub I was sworn into office. He, like all the Democrats and all the rest of the Rove Republican swill, are One World Government types to their very core. The only difference between them and Ruth Bader Ginsburg is that SHE is willing to voice her views publicly.

      I think he has the US confused with Justin’s Canada.

    I wonder what Trump will demand in return for playing ‘footsie’ with these so-called United Nations ?

    If this shithead doesn’t watch his mouth, the UN may have to significantly tighten its fiscal belt.
