Nikki Haley looks to be a perfect choice for American ambassador at UN

For as long as the UN continues to function, of course. She's made clear she takes a pro-Israel stance:
President-elect Donald Trump's choice for ambassador to the UN vowed a sharp pivot in US policy at the international body on Wednesday, questioning its bias against Israel and its inability to address the world's most pressing crises.

At her Senate confirmation hearing, Nikki Haley, who currently serves as South Carolina's governor, slammed the Obama administration for allowing "mistreatment" of Israel in the halls of an organization with a long record of disproportionately targeted the Jewish state. She called a resolution which passed through the Security Council last month condemning Israel's settlement enterprise– facilitated by a US abstention– "the ultimate low," a "terrible mistake," a "kick in the gut" and a message to the world that America's commitments to its allies ring hollow.

The resolution, numbered 2334, suggested that "being an ally of the United States doesn't mean anything," Haley told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

"I will not go to New York and abstain when the UN seeks to create an international environment that encourages boycotts of Israel," Haley said. "I will never abstain when the United Nations takes any action that comes in direct conflict with the interests and values of the United States."

As she prepared for her Senate hearing, Haley spent considerable time weighing the incoming administration's options for rolling back the effects of 2334. She settled on a strategy of carefully leveraging American aid to UN bodies, she told the committee.

The US funds roughly 22 percent of the UN's annual budget.

"You have to really question the goals of the Human Rights Council," she said, noting the council's repeated targeting of Israel under rotating leadership that has included China, Cuba and Iran. "We host the UN, and that should give us great leverage."
Whether or not the UN repeals their resolution, funding should be cut, and the US shouldn't remain any more than European countries should remain in the EU. It's a huge waste of money, and everyone who cares should distance themselves from an organization as awful as the UN truly is.
