It’s finally payback time, folks! U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley just crushed the “disloyal” haters of President Donald Trump at the U.N. with one perfectly-timed photo.
In December, President Donald Trump announced his decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, essentially recognizing the city as the Jewish nation’s capital. Although this is entirely within the rights of the United States as a sovereign nation, it raised the ire of many U.N. member nations.
Ultimately, the U.N. Security Council drafted a resolution in opposition to Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy, and a great many member nations got behind the measure.
In December, 128 U.N. member nations voted to condemn President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as “null and void” during the U.N. General Assembly.
Nine countries voted against the condemnation (which means they support the United States), while 35 nations abstained. 21 countries were absent during the vote.
Among the countries that voted to condemn the U.S. were longtime “allies” Germany, France and the United Kingdom. Other key allies like Canada, Mexico, and Australia abstained from the vote. Nine countries, including Honduras, Guatemala and Palau, supported the U.S. decision.
The betrayal infuriated millions of Americans, many of whom demanded the U.S. defund the United Nations, since we get the least benefit out of the “alliance.” [Source: BizPac Review]
This proved to be a very stupid move, as the United States has veto power, so a vote on the measure was little more than spitting in the wind. Indeed, all that it accomplished was to piss off President Trump, who has already proven that he is not a man you want to mess with.
Trump responded by announcing an unprecedented cut in U.S. funding to the U.N. Not to be outdone, Haley had a little something up her own sleeve in order to reward the U.N. member nations which stood with the United States in the decision to move the Embassy to Jerusalem.
Haley is hosting a party tonight for the 65 nations that did not vote against the United States at the U.N. General Assembly last month regarding Jerusalem. Haley posted a “Save The Date” invitation to the party on Instagram.
“As I said in December, we won’t forget the Jerusalem vote,” Haley said Tuesday. “To that end, tomorrow night, we are having a reception for the countries who chose not to oppose the U.S. position. This is a great sign of U.S. friendship. We hope to see more of this in 2018,” she continued.
“The United States is asked to do a huge amount around the world, and we are happy to do that,” Haley added. “But we expect to be treated respectfully in return.”
Haley also reminded disloyal allies that the U.S. contributes far more money to the United Nations than all of the other member countries combined. The next time the countries which voted against us come to the U.S. begging for help, we will certainly remember their disloyalty and consider it heavily as we weigh the decision regarding whether to give them even more tax-payer money.
“We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations,” Haley promised. “And we will remember it when so many countries come calling on us — as they so often do — to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit.”
This is a fantastic way to kick off the New Year! The United Nations, which Trump has repeatedly blasted as a “sad” and useless social club, needs to be put on notice. No longer will the U.S. continue to fund the worthless organization to the tune of billions of dollars each year without receiving any sort of support in return.
This is precisely the reason why many are touting Haley’s name as a viable option to become the first female president. She certainly is making a name for herself at the U.N., and Trump couldn’t be happier. 2018 is already promising to be a ground-breaking year for the U.S. and her allies with Trump and Haley in charge.
