United Nations Interferes in U.S. Election
United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein
Wednesday, October 12, 2016. United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein has said a Donald Trump presidency would be “dangerous” for the international community. Zeid made the comments Wednesday during a news briefing in Geneva. Citing Trump’s “deeply unsettling and disturbing” views on torture and “vulnerable communities” such as Muslims, minorities, and immigrants, the U.N. rights chief declared:
If Donald Trump is elected on the basis of what he has said already—and unless that changes—I think it is without any doubt that he would be dangerous from an international point of view. I always believe that it’s incumbent on leaders to lead and to lead in a way that is ethical and moral. The use of half-truths is a very clever political device. Because, as every propagandist knows, you allow the user to fill in the rest.
