On Monday, the U.S. vetoed a UN Security Council draft resolution criticizing the United States decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. The vote was 14 to 1 and stated that the U.S. decision is null and void and must be rescinded, with only the U.S. voting against it. Under pressure by the Palestinians and Arab and Muslim nations, the president of the UN General Assembly has called an emergency session of the General Assembly for Thursday to consider a resolution similar to the one presented to the Security Council for the sole purpose of condemning the U.S. again.
These 14 countries, including supposed American allies that are supported financially by the U.S., did not mind embarrassing, humiliating, and insulting President Trump on the international stage and challenging U.S. sovereignty. The UN Security Council with its 14 members was trying to interfere and dictate to the U.S. what its foreign policy should be while being hosted by the U.S. on American soil and being supported financially by the generosity of the American taxpayers. These nations chose to vote for and appease Mahmoud Abbas, the corrupt Palestinian leader who was the second in command to the notorious terrorist Yasser Arafat, the financier of Palestinian anti-Israel and American terrorist attacks for decades, a Holocaust denier, and an unelected tyrant, over the leader of the free world.
In forcing the U.S. to use its veto, the other countries emboldened Americas enemies and adversaries by highlighting the isolation the U.S. faces on the world stage. All this on the same day Trump presented his administration s national security strategy. As U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said what we witnessed here today in the Security Council is an insult.

The UN is an insult the US will not forget....
Maybe they’ll kick us out.
Then we won’t have to bother quitting and we can do as we please....................
” stated that the U.S. decision is null and void and must be rescinded”
The UN has no real power, the response to them should be “suck it monkey boys”.
Haley should announce to the General Assembly that if the vote is against the U.S. the UN has 30 days to vacate the UN building and leave the country.
Apparently, prior to the vote, Mr. Trump threatened to cut off financial aid to the countries which supported this resolution. I hope he follows through on that threat.
Just kick those worthless POS OUT of the USA and after extreme fumigating, turn the building into apartments or a building for something USEFUL!!!!
Kick them the f*** OUT. We must exit the UN and the UN must exit America.
Thanks to President Trump we can do as we please anyway. We are a SOVEREIGN Nation and the UN cannot dictate to us.
You can’t buy friends. Lesson learned, I hope.
Nikki is kind coming butt & taking names! So awesome! We could fund the building of the WALL with the money we pay the U.N. and give in aid to other nations. Aid that these countries corrupt leaders abscond.
There is one IMPORTANT reason the US is in the UN.
We have veto power over everything.
There are 50 muslim countries.
While the US is in, we get to keep them in check.
He'll follow through. I just hope he makes an official announcement before Christmas. That will be a GREAT Christmas gift to all of us MAGA deplorables!
Just looked it up on a map, and I didn't realize that FDR Drive slides into a tunnel next to the UN Plaza.
Is that so the UN gets an unobstructed view of the beautiful East River?
Meanwhile Chicago wants the UN to send troops to police their streets.
I don’t find it embarrassing or humiliating at all. Insulting, yes. And I’m a little embarrassed FOR our cuck allies who went along with this. But otherwise, no. Permanent Veto. Check.
Turkey is a co-sponsor of this vote. They are also a co-sponsor of Islamic terrorism.
The UN is both an insult and a danger to America (especially since we are still actually allowing UN to be in USA).
HOPEFULLY, PRAYERFULLY...we can FINALLY get the HELL out of the UnitedNazis (and it out of our country) now.
I am somewhat aware of the various views about the UN’s founding history and it could indeed have been malevolent against America. EITHER WAY ON THAT, it definitely has become a dangerous enemy outfit, filled up with America-hating Muslim dictatorships and residual communists, etc.
With thousands of enemy agents and spies and moles we let into NY City .... just awful... we need to get UnitedNazis OUT of our country NOW! Let them meet in Mecca or North Korea
Russia contributes 3% to the regular budget and China 8%.
Start by restricting their movements to “x” miles from the UN office.
Do NOT let them purchase real property.
No citizenship for their babies.
