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.
The vote is in-- 65 countries refused to condemn the United States and 128 voted against us. Final vote tally to follow.— Nikki Haley (@nikkihaley) December 21, 2017
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.
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. pic.twitter.com/ZsusB8Hqt4— Nikki Haley (@nikkihaley) December 19, 2017
