A Harvard Law professor is praising U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley for announcing a major cut to the U.N.’s budget next year.
On Monday, Alan Dershowitz said that Haley did exactly the right thing.
This comes after the Trump administration announced the day before it had secured a $285 million cut to the U.N. fiscal budget for 2018.
The announcement also came days after the U.N. voted overwhelmingly for a resolution opposing President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Dershowitz added it’s the first of many steps to bring the U.N. back to where it ought to be as a “neutral arbiter of peace.”
“Now as far as what Nikki Haley has done, it’s, I think, terrific,” said Professor Dershowitz. “It is about time we sent a message to the U.N., which has become a place of hate when it comes to the United States and Israel.”
He also said former President Obama was wrong to abstain from a vote to allow the U.N. Security Council to condemn Israeli settlements.
