Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Tuesday the United Nations needs to “grow a spine” against Russia and criticized President Biden for reportedly seeking China’s help to try to convince Russia not to invade Ukraine.

“We should be going to the U.N. railing, saying war criminals don’t deserve to sit on the Security Council, certainly shouldn’t have a veto. We should go and have them removed from the General Assembly in the U.N.,” Haley told “The Brian Kilmeade Show.” 

Haley added that Russia should be removed from the Human Rights Council.

“Biden chose to get back in after we pulled ourselves out. If he’s going to sit shoulder to shoulder with Russia, either Russia goes or the U.S. goes, Biden has to make a choice, and we absolutely cannot sit in negotiations with Iran, next to Russia, next to China, with two of our enemies and make a deal. We cannot do that. Biden cannot allow that Iran deal to go forward,” she said, calling it a “fireable offense” for President Biden to seek China’s help in dealing with Russia.

“You never go ask an enemy for help with another enemy. Is there any shock that China turned around and told Russia everything we said? It’s humiliating. Wake up, America. This can’t continue.”

“To deprive the aggressor country of the right to vote in the U.N.

Talked about it in a conversation with UN Secretary General [Antonio Guterres],” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy tweeted.

Haley told “The Faulkner Focus” that the United Nations should be treating Russia “like the criminals they are.”

If the U.N. ever wanted to man up and grow a spine, this is the time to do it. Because if they can do this to Ukraine they can do it to any country that sits in that chamber and we have to look at this. This is a learning moment for us.”
