US quits 'biased' UN human rights council per BBC News

This BBC report really doesn't want to give any succour to President Donald Trump hence the last line of these opening four:

'The US has pulled out of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

The body is "hypocritical and self-serving" and "makes a mockery of human rights", said Nikki Haley, the US envoy to the UN.

Ms Haley last year accused the council of "chronic anti-Israel bias" and said the US was reviewing its membership.

Formed in 2006, the council has been criticised for allowing countries with questionable human rights records to be members.'

Saudi Arabia, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Algeria - how could anyone criticise such countries for their human rights records? Yet for the UNHRC and the institutionally anti Israel BBC it's Israel that's always the villain.
