Listen: UN, United States And Nikki Haley discussed on Jay Sekulow
"And restrictions apply. Jaysekulow live. We're going to get right back into what happened at the United Nations yesterday with the resolution at the general assembly condemning HAMAs which would have passed under normal standards one country one vote resolution pass right before one that has never been used this year. None of us can remember being used in the past that the general assembly. They required a two-thirds majority for resolution to pass. So the resolution would have passed it got eighty seven votes in favour Fifty-seven against thirty three abstentions. Of course that wasn't two thirds. So we talked to you, and we'll continue to tell you this anti Israel bias and even anti-semitism. There are good signs in this vote. The entire e you voted to condemn HAMAs all twenty eight Member States other countries from around the world, of course, eighty seven. So the majority of countries voting again, this would have passed to condemn HAMAs for their attacks on Israel, Israel. Specifically named. So I think going for there needs to be ways we're going to send a letter to the UN from our legal counsel to their council about this procedural move. And how this occurred yesterday because these other resolutions don't require these votes, and we want to make sure it's not just it's kind of Israel always being treated differently the US being treated differently as well as our resolution that was put forward we've got phone calls coming in about some new appointments to President Trump has announced today, we know that Nikki Haley is on her way out at the end of the year. It big shoes to fill an excellent job. Let's go to Benjamin calling from Texas about that online to Benjamin welcome to jaysekulow live. Jordan. If he would come in a little bit about the find job, Nikki Haley, did it as ambassador to the UN with your ready. Played a coupla customer in my view. Nikki Haley is a rockstar. And if if for some reason. Either one is seeking a second term. I think Nikki Haley would make a fine running mate vice president of the United States. I think I think I think what. Nikki Haley has been clear she's going to support. President Trump and vice president Pence and their reelection efforts. She she is again, I think probably going back into private life of bid after being governor. Then right into ambassador these very busy. But she has done so much since being at the just give an example, what the US is accomplished at the UN when it comes to Israel to Israel. We defended the UN relief and Works Agency which aids these quote Palestinian refugees because the numbers are right. The US has withdrawn from the UN Human Rights Council because of its anti-israel bias diverted funds from the UN development program. Too US aid back to our own program to get Christians in Iraq, the help they need because the UN DP wasn't doing it. We the UN resolution condemning Israel's treatment of Palestinians. So we actually prevented that from passing that resolution at the Security Council and we've threatened to pull aid from countries that vote against the US at the UN. We've already started doing that. And the fact let me play that sound bite from Nick. Haley where she says we will be looking at how you vote the United States. Will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the general assembly for the very act of exercising? Our right as a sovereign nation. We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world's largest contribution to the United Nations. And we will remember when so many countries come calling on us as they so often due to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit. So again that will be the Trump policy moving forward who has President Trump chosen to replace ambassador. Nikki Haley, maybe a name, you know. Well, if you are Fox News viewer, and or someone who has followed the State Department closely Heather Nauert who joined the State Department as spokesper spokesperson. In April two thousand seventeen has been announced his President Trump's pick to replace Nikki Haley is US ambassador to the UN. She's had career broadcast journalism. She's also not just the State Department spokesperson, but is the acting under secretary for public diplomacy and public affairs. I would also point out the she has been at the State Department in a particularly tumultuous time because she was there when Rex Tillerson was secretary of state, and she remained when secretary of state Pompeo was nominated and confirmed for the position, which I think means she really proved herself with inside the State Department about running the communications and the the the the the public diplomacy aspect of the the State Department as an assistant secretary. And so usually, you know, when you had the transfer of a sector a new cabinet member. Individuals like that will will be on the way out. But instead, I think she proved herself. And so she stayed on undersecretary Pompeii did not leave like a lot of the Rex Tillerson a staff did she is now. Now been appointed. She was on Fox News as an anchor and correspondent so people may know her from there. She also worked for ABC news, which of the Columbia school of journalism and she will again face Senate confirmation. But but again, the role of the UN ambassador the US ambassador UN one of the main roles is communicating your message is public diplomacy. And that is what she's been working in her craft on doing as both in television. And as the spokesperson for the US State Department. Another important a nominee today. There were getting it right back to your calls on what happened with the resolution with Israel. So we're not moving to different topic. But just so you know, that the president has also nominated a replacement for the former US attorney general Jeff Sessions. He's he has announced that he will nominate William bar. I'll really knows Bill bar who's right right now in private practice, but he served as he seventy. Attorney general of the United States. So he's already been the US attorney general from nineteen ninety one to nineteen Ninety-three. I think sort of time spent a lot of it's been pretty tumultuous at department of Justice having someone who's already been a US attorney general come in to kind of right? The ship is probably a very good move by a President Trump. So he served president, George H W Bush. He was prior to that the deputy attorney general and an assistant attorney general in charge of the office of legal counsel, which are very important office at the DOJ at the department of Justice he established programs to combat violent crime, civil rights issues oversaw the investigation of the Pam pan. Am one oh three one hundred three bombing. And again, just I think that this is someone who's coming with a lot of experience in the department of Justice at many aspects of it. He also worked on counterterrorism activities during the first Gulf war. So so that is who is being nominated to. Replace a Jeff Sessions who's already reside to be. They also have to go through Bill have to go through confirmation process. But again, he's already served as he has served as US attorney general previously under president, George H W Bush and in so many other capacities at the department of Justice. Let's get right back to the topic at hand. I just didn't want to miss that. Because President Trump announced it today confirmed it today, those two very important positions. And so I wanted to let you all know about that get that news out she'll go right to the phones take a phone call, and we'll go by who's been holding on the longest Mark in New York on line three, Mark. Welcome to Jason you're on the air. I just a comment in regards to the latest at the UN every time America has a a situation where they know they're going to. Fail in a vote. Are they going to be changing it back to two thirds vote constantly, well, we're actually going to be putting in a legal letter. Because you we we Mark through the European for law Justice because your support further ACL Jay we have offices around the world, and our European surfer lawn Justice is recognized officially as an organization with authority and property at the United Nations is an NGO at the UN to to say, it's just basically we're able to communicate not just as an outside group. But as the fishery recognized you in group, and we're going to write our senior counsel to the UN directly about what happened with this two thirds vote because it is one unheard of this year. It has not happened to single time on a single resolution, and none of us who remember on any of these kind of controversial issues remember two thirds vote. So again, I I can't say if definitely this would happen again. If if you if there could be procedural changes, if it's just so so loosey-goosey at the general assembly that the countries make up rules, they go, but then it's supposed to be one state one vote one member one vote, you're not supposed to have this super majorities at the general assembly. It's not like the Security Council. I mean as part of the mantra, Jordan, you know, one country one vote and you see it in resolutions last week. You see in resolutions this week? I mean, the pro Palestinian resolution that passed on the same day granted it had one hundred and fifty six votes in favour. So it would have passed either way. But this requirement wasn't placed on it. So Jordan, I think there are two things one the letter that you referenced we are going to write to the United Nations and insist on legal parody. If you're going to consider similar resolutions. They have to be considered under the same thresholds. Otherwise know, the body itself is undermined Jordan, and the second thing is more of a diplomatic one. Look, this is still a giant stride forward because you had a pretty significant plurality now on the side of the United States in Israel on this issue. And. Diplomatically now, it's up to the United States to go back to these countries who enabled this member of the Arab states. Can't do this on the they're on the organisation for the Islamic cooperation can't do it on its own. They do it with the government of countries who are supposed to be an aligned with."
