The United Nations report on poverty in America indicates 40 million people live in poverty. This is a form of slavery caused by high levels of economic inequality and denied by President Trump's administration.

Nikki Haley is not only in denial but creates abhorrent spin when she blasts a UN report on poverty in America as "misleading and politically motivated". She wants to throw sand at others and no longer wants to play in the sandbox the United States helped to create. This she presented on Fox News as reported by Rich Edson, June 2018.
A United Nations report criticizing the U.S. government on poverty in America is “misleading and politically motivated,” according to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley.

“It is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America,” Haley wrote in letters to Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. “There is no question that poverty in America remains a serious concern, but it does no one any good to inaccurately describe its prevalence or its causes.”
Yet Doctor A's previous video, http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-fi-mid ... tory.html#presents a much different picture of America from an Article in Nation, Middle-class families, pillar of the American dream, are no longer in the majority, by Don Lee, Dec 09, 2015.
The nation's middle class, long a pillar of the U.S. economy and foundation of the American dream, has shrunk to the point where it no longer constitutes the majority of the adult population, according to a new major study.


Moreover, the UN responded the next day to Hailey with the following in the New York Post, UN human rights expert criticizes wealth inequality in US, By Associated Press, June 23, 2018. https://nypost.com/2018/06/23/un-human- ... ity-in-us/

The UN response shows just how pathetic and biased Nikki Haley's accusations are when it tells the truth,
A human rights expert criticized the United States on Friday for failing to tackle poverty and giving tax cuts to the wealthy — comments that came only days after Washington quit the UN body that appointed him.

High US income inequality “can only be made worse” by the Trump administration’s policy of cutting taxes, Philip Alston told the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

“At the other end of the spectrum, 40 million Americans live in poverty and 18.5 million of those live in extreme poverty,” he said. “In addition, vast numbers of middle-class Americans are perched on the edge, with 40 percent of the adult population saying they would be unable to cover an unexpected $400 expense.”

A day before Alston presented his report to the rights body, the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, branded it “misleading and politically motivated” in a letter .
“When one of the world’s wealthiest countries does very little about the fact that 40 million of its citizens live in poverty, it is entirely appropriate for the reasons to be scrutinized,” Alston said of the United States.
Obviously Haley wants to take her toys and leave the sandbox after being confronted with the truth.
