U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley warns the U.S. will be “taking names” of the countries that vote in favor of a resolution that condemns the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“At the U.N., we’re constantly asked to do more and give more — in the past we have. So, when we make a decision, at the will of the American people, about where to locate OUR embassy, we don’t expect those we’ve helped to target us,” Haley wrote on Facebook and Twitter on Tuesday evening. “On Thursday, there will be a vote at the U.N. criticizing our choice. And yes, the U.S. will be taking names.”
President Donald Trump backed his ambassador’s tough talk at a Cabinet meeting in Washington on Wednesday. “We’re watching those votes,” the President said. “Let them vote against us, we’ll save a lot. We don’t care. But this isn’t like it used to be where they could vote against you and then you pay them hundreds of millions of dollars and nobody knows what they’re doing.”
Trump indicated that he and Haley had agreed on her message beforehand. “Nikki, that was the right message that you and I agreed to be sent yesterday,” he said. “People that live here, our great citizens that love this country — they’re tired of this country being taken advantage of and we’re not going to be taken advantage of any longer.”
