The Arab nations of the world are not happy with America’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel… but President Donald Trump and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley just sent an epic message that was heard loud and clear at the United Nations.
Earlier this month, Trump stunned the world by announcing that the U.S. was recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and would be moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. In response, the United Nations tried to undermine that decision with a
resolution scolding America. Instead of caving in, Haley and Trump doubled down, and drew a clear line in the sand. Haley firmly pointed out that the United States gives huge sums of money to nations around the world — and if the U.N. really wanted to tell America where to put its own embassy, the stream of cash would probably stop. “The United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy,” she declared on Twitter. “At the UN we’re always asked to do more & give more,” the tough former governor continued in a public post. “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.” Then she issued a warning to anti-Israel nations: The free money train doesn’t go on forever.

The United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy.
Haley can easily hold her own, but Trump decided to make sure her message resonated strongly. At a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Trump backed his ambassador, and reiterated the stern warning.
“I like the message that Nikki sent yesterday at the United Nations for all of these nations that take our money and then they vote against us at the Security Council, or they vote against us potentially at the (general) assembly,” he said. “They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. Well, we’re watching those votes,” he declared, according to The Hill. “Let them vote against us, we’ll save a lot. We don’t care.” Source
