The scourge if the UN just got schooled by Nikki Haley on how, no, the UN is not the boss of us.
The United States stood against the 14 other U.N. Security Council member nations on Monday by vetoing a resolution that called on the Trump administration to rescind its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
In a show of the widespread international frustration toward the administration’s recent moves on Israel, even U.S. allies Britain and France supported Monday’s resolution, which expressed “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.”
While the resolution, drafted by Egypt, did not mention the United States or Mr. Trump by name, it was clear to all involved at U.N. headquarters in New York that the administration was the focus of Monday’s developments.
The resolution specifically sought to assert 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,” according to Reuters.
In moving to veto, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley called the resolution “an insult” that won’t be forgotten, according The Associated Press.
