America ‘isolated’ at the UN? Annual General meeting break with US on the most votes, report finds

closevideo what would President Trump to say, on the question of the freedom of religion, taking into account the UN General Assembly?

The protection of the religious freedom issue number one is during the tenure of President Donald Trump’s address to the UN General Assembly. According to Tony Perkins of the family Research Council, the President is a difficult challenge in front of him. So, what President Trump should say, when it comes to the world of the body? Tony Perkins is here to discuss.

As the President of Trump’s address to the U. N. prepares General Assembly this week, a new State Department report shows that the world body is not in sync with U.S. interests in more than two-thirds of the votes-probably other issues to raise within the trump-management about the organization and America’s financial commitment.

“The United States will continue to be isolated diplomatically on the development and the Israel-related resolutions”, the report on the voting procedure at the said U. N. in 2018.


The State Department made the report public this month show that the U.S. and the U. N. General Assembly, a total of alignment, only 31 percent of the time in the year 2018, the same as in 2017. This is down from the last year of the Obama administration, if they were in agreement 41% of the time.

It means that the US voted against 70 percent of the Assembly decisions require a vote, more than any other U. N. member States.

The mandate of the Congress report for the year 2018, there shall also be a vote by the 15 members of the U. N. Security Council and the 193 members of the General Assembly and in the comparison of the countries ‘ records with the United States, voting is considered in An additional section on how the world body votes on Israel.

The former Ambassador to the U. N. Nikki Haley, said in the year 2017, the United States would be “taking names” of the countries that vote against US interests, particularly in relation to Israel, while Trump warned that the administration observed the votes, especially of those who US money.

The 10 countries receiving the most on the out-of-sync with the USA (together with US aid in fiscal year 2018, according to the USAID website): Burundi ($69 million), Syria ($819 million), North Korea (US$2.6 million), Turkmenistan (4.5 million dollars), Venezuela ($25 million), Nicaragua ($30 million), Niger ($573 million), Cuba ($12 million) and Iran (less than $1 million).


Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, under the USAID-portal will receive $760 million, only 19 percent of the time with the United States. Pakistan, which gets $370 million Euro, agreed to only 15 percent of the time with the US, Jordan, gets $ 1.2 billion, was 21 per cent, in alignment with the United States


But the US still enjoys the support of some allies. The 10 most friendly records in descending order: Israel, Micronesia, Canada, Australia, the Marshall Islands, the United Kingdom, Hungary, France, Poland and the Czech Republic.

In the year 2018, Haley noted that the United States pays more than one-fifth of U. N. budget, more than the next three highest donors together. You said, in the case of the issuance of the last report, to 2017, records of voting, that “this is not an acceptable return on our investment.”

An analysis of the Council on Foreign Relations found that the U.S. government contributed more than $10 billion to the United Nations in the year 2017-was about $7 billion in voluntary and $ 3.5 billion a rating.

Since then, the United States has drawn from a number of U. N. institutions, including the controversial Commission on human rights and the U. N., the Social, Cultural and Economic bodies (UNESCO). There is also the financing of the U. N. plan-Agency for Palestinian refugees.

The report also found that the U. N. General Assembly is largely still in its anti-Israel tilt, the adoption of 21 anti-Israel resolutions in the year 2018, the same amount as 2017. The United States supported these resolutions, only 14 percent of the time.

Maybe it was the fact that the new U. N. Ambassador Kelly craft gave a fiery speech before the U. N. security Council last week, slamming anti-Israel bias in the body and the emphasis on the US commitment to its allies.

“It is inexcusable, that everywhere the anti-Israel bias in the United Nations, and that we try to continue the testimony of some of the UN member States to undermine Israel’s standing as a full-fledged member of the community of Nations,” she said. “The United States strongly oppose all these efforts.”


Israel’s Ambassador Danny Danon told Fox News that while the anti-Israel-remains the bias, the “needle is moving” in the right direction and pointed to instances such as the US-sponsored resolution condemning Hamas in the last year. The resolution received a simple majority of support in the chamber, but not the two-thirds majority win needed to pass.

“The resolution is contrary to the Hamas, for example, is a remarkable success, because for the first time, a majority of the member States, the condemnation of the group and the attribution of a terrorist organization supported,” he told Fox News. “And there are many more successes that take place outside the GA and resolutions, but start to affect you in the coming years.”

Trump is on the General meeting of shareholders on Tuesday, when the issues of Israel and the value for money is likely to be N. in the U., addressed in his speech.
