The United Nations General Assembly Thursday received a stern warning from US Ambassador Nikki Haley who threatened to pull U. S. funding in response to their resolution condemning Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
In her statement she said “The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation."
The resolution passed 128-9 and indicated "deep regret" at the move by President Trump. The resolution asks “all States to refrain from the establishment of diplomatic missions in the Holy City of Jerusalem.” Turkey and Yemen sponsored the resolution after the US vetoed a similar resolution in the Security Council. But the US does not have veto power in the General Assembly.
The Trump administration , so far has shown a willingness to back up tough talk with action. This writer will be waiting with baited breath for what happens next.
