As the United Nations’ member states prepare to vote Thursday on a resolution that orders the withdrawal of President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley warned that the United States “will be taking names” of those who support the measure.
On Monday, Haley invoked her first veto at the U.N. Security Council against a resolution that rejected Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem.
Trump’s decision assured the fulfillment of a promise made for decades in American politics by Republicans and Democrats — the relocating of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Haley criticized the proposed resolution, declaring it to be an “insult” that would not be forgotten. She also called the U.N.’s actions detrimental to the relationship between Israel and Palestine.
At the request of Arab and Muslim states, the U.N. General Assembly scheduled an emergency session to address Trump’s decision.
In a Tuesday tweet, Haley wrote, “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, abt where to locate OUR embassy, we don’t expect those we’ve helped to target us. On Thurs there’ll be a vote criticizing our choice. The US will be taking names.”
