'U.S. Will Be Taking Names' Of U.N. Votes On Jerusalem Resolution

There will be a vote Thursday in the general Assembly of the United Nations.  This will be a vote on a draft resolution which criticises Donald Trump's executive decision to move our embassy to Jerusalem.  

Any country that votes in favor of this resolution is apt to face reprisal from the U. S. Government according to the Trump administration.

Nikki Haley, our ambassador to the UN, sent a warning to most of the member nations according to the Associated Press.  The letter states, "The president will be watching this vote carefully and has requested I report back on those countries who voted against us".   "We will take note of each and every vote on this issue."

Haley also stated that the administration is  "simply asking that you acknowledge the historical friendship, partnership, and support we have extended and respect our decision about our own embassy."

In a more straightforward manner she tweeted:   "At the UN we're always asked to do more & give more. So, when we make a decision, at the will of the American ppl, abt where to locate OUR embassy, we don't expect those we've helped to target us. On Thurs there'll be a vote criticizing our choice. The US will be taking names."

Quoting Trump on Wednesday:  "They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. Well, we're watching those votes. Let them vote against us. We'll save a lot. We don't care,".

Reportedly, the emergency session was called he request of Arab and Muslim states
