UN Meddles in Jerusalem Embassy Move. But Trump is Fighting Back...
The U.N can sometimes be a bigger crap fest than the Chinese dog eating fest. Smells delicious. Fourteen out of fifteen U.N. members (excluding the U.S.) are totes pissed over Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem. And they're making their butt-hurtness known to the world. Jokes on them though, because it's the U.S. who pads their slender hog banks with dolla dolla bills.
With the U.N. moving to vote on an "Egyptian-drafted resolution" in an emergency meeting tomorrow, Trumpy is threatening to take away their allowance. Sad.
"They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. Well, we're watching those votes. Let them vote against us. We'll save a lot. We don't care," Trump told reporters at the White House.
The 193-member U.N. General Assembly will hold a rare emergency special session on Thursday - at the request of Arab and Muslim countries - to vote on a draft resolution, which was vetoed by the United States on Monday in the 15-member U.N. Security Council.
The remaining 14 Security Council members voted in favor of the Egyptian-drafted resolution, which did not specifically mention the United States or Trump but which expressed "deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem."
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, in a letter to dozens of U.N. states on Tuesday seen by Reuters, warned that Trump had asked her to "report back on those countries who voted against us."
Yeah, Nikki Haley is one badass snitch. In the best of ways too (see Nikki Haley Tells the UN Security Council Where to Stick Their Jerusalem Resolution and Nikki Haley Addresses the United Nations on Cuban Embargo, American Sovereignty). Flawless. Almost as flawless as Trump's decision to back Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
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,… https://t.co/NfwD3sfd7d— Archive: Ambassador Nikki Haley (@Archive: Ambassador Nikki Haley)1513721296.0
This is what we among scholarly groups refer to as "having a spine." For far too long, the U.S. let the UN boss us around. Now there's a new sheriff in town. Her name is Nikki and she specializes in ass-kickery.
