Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is applauding the Trump Administration for officially pulling out of a United Nations agency known for its anti-Israel bias.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Haley slammed the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization for its extreme bias against the Jewish state. She called it a cesspool and one of the most corrupt and politically biased UN agencies.
UNESCO is among the most corrupt and politically biased UN agencies. Today the U.S. withdrawal from this cesspool became official. #USStrong

The Trump Administration announced it would pull out of UNESCO last year after Israel withdrew its membership.
UNESCO has been repeatedly criticized for denouncing Israel’s claim on East Jerusalem by naming ancient Jewish sites as Palestinian territory.
