US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley issued a stark warning to those countries poised to vote against President Trump’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel; telling world leaders America will remember those who oppose the historic move.
The looming showdown is expected Thursday afternoon, when the United Nations prepares to vote against Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem. The proposed resolution “affirms that any decisions and actions which purport to have altered the character, status or demographic composition of the holy city of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded.”
Haley pushed back against the resolution, warning those countries that vote against the United States that she will be “taking names.”
“We’re always asked to do more & give more,” Haley wrote on Twitter. “So, when we make a decision, at the will of the American ppl [people], abt [about] 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.”
President Trump made history earlier this month when he announced his decision to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem; upending decades of empty promises and drastically altering the Middle East peace process.
