President Trump received support from the the president of Guatemala on Sunday when the country announced its plan to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
The decision comes on the heels of a UN vote that largely went against President Trump‘s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.
“Dear people of Guatemala, today I spoke with the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. We discussed the excellent relations that we have had as nations since Guatemala supported the creation of the state of Israel,” Morales wrote on his official Facebook account.
Guatemala was one of the few countries to vote with the U.S. against passing a non-binding resolution at the U.N. declaring Trump’s Jerusalem decision “null and void.”
Prior to the vote, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley warned countries who voted against the U.S. decision by stating that the U.S. will be “taking names.”
Guatemala sends an incredibly high number of illegal aliens to the US each year. It also stands to receive $80M from the US in foreign aid in 2018.
