BREAKING: UN Votes to Condemn the United States for Jerusalem Move

The United Nations has voted to condemn the United States for officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, with plans to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to the city. 

Before the final tally, Ambassador Nikki Haley warned the U.S. would be taking names and remembering which countries voted against the move. She also reminded the international body that the move reflects U.S. law passed in 1995, which President Trump is simply choosing to enforce.
