Countries may lose US aid for UN vote against Trump’s Jerusalem policy

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday warned he may slash aid to countries that support a UN General Assembly resolution on Thursday that seeks to annul his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “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,” Trump said at the White House. On Tuesday, Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the UN, said she would report back to Trump with the names of those countries who vote for the resolution drafted by Turkey and Yemen.

    Very nice President Trump, I agree, they want our money? Then act out like fools for the fake group. Please just close the out dated UN. Iran chair of womens rights. Wow, really? Women, do you you have a voice?, or is behind a black towel. Regards Dave

    I agree with the proposal that the US withdraw its backing of the UN (both financially and in terms of real estate), and that the organization should relocate its headquarters to Tehran. Let the rest of the world then decide whether or not to send its delegates there, always in the minority for any decision of the new “Assembly” or “Security Council” or Human Rights committees.

    Yea, why pay countries to stab us in the back? Israel is a sovereign nation and can put their capital anywhere they want to within their borders. And as invited guests, we can locate our embassy in their capital if they allow us to. Trump is 100% correct on this and it’s the right time to do it.

      L’armée libanaise poursuit l’offensive contre les positions de l’organisation État islamique près de la frontière syrienne. They are the good guys, from this point of view.

    Very well ! Nikki and Donald with an empty stomach is more difficult to do anti-democratic dictators. I agree to move the UN headquarters to Teheran, a move at their expense.

      You have already too many capitals. Israel territories start with Golan and go all along the west bank of the Jordan river, but the problem is the Arabs drop a capital here and one there without end. Amman and the othe Arab capital of Damascus in close vicinity and also too close to Israel. Plus the issue with Arabs infiltrated in Nablus, they want this as a capital, but hey, they also want to move it to Jerusalem! You Arabs are crazy!

    Cutting aid is no real solution, others will start influencing those countries instead. ..

      You’re not a fan of free speech, are you? You’re a fan of censorship and repression. I get it. Keep crying if you’re so sensitive and week, and you may receive some sympathy…
