  • Trump Gets Real About the UN

Meanwhile, out of the 193 states in the UN General Assembly, nine voted against the resolution, while 35 nations, including Canada and Mexico, did not vote. This combined with the number of countries who rejected the resolution showed more division than usually seen in issues surrounding Palestine.

"While we are pleased with the results of this year's budget negotiations, you can be sure we'll continue to look at ways to increase the UN's efficiency while protecting our interests", said Ambassador Haley.

Representative of the United States to the UN, Nikki Haley made the announcement on Sunday and said it "is a big step in the right direction".

Trump's Jerusalem move was rejected despite threats by the USA leader to eliminate financial aid to member states who would vote against his decision.

This move comes after US president Donald Trump threatened to cut aid from countries that voted against the United States' decision regarding Jerusalem in the Security Council on December 18 and the General Assembly on December 21.

Haley appeared to imply a sense of weariness from the United States for supporting a huge range of nations that would not support the U.S. in turn.

The US President told reporters at the White House, "All of these nations that take our money and then they vote against us at the Security Council or they vote against us, potentially, at the Assembly, they take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us".

He added that the good Americans are exhausted of being taken advantage of, "well, we're not going to be taken advantage of any longer". "We don't care", Trump stated.

Israel was the only country that praised the USA decision.

In July, Trump had promised $639m in aid to assist people facing starvation in Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen. Haley immediately responded by threatening to reduce America's United Nations funding.

Nikki Haley, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, prepares to speak on the floor of the General Assembly on December 21, 2017 in New York City. The status of Jerusalem remains one of the main sticking points in efforts to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Welcoming the world body's move to denounce the United States decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem, senior separatist and president Anjuman Shar-ee Shian Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvitermedthe resolution as "encouraging" and described it as a moral victory of Palestinian people and "a setback to the American imperialism and hegemony in the world and also extension of its support to ruthless Israel by ordering the shifting of its embassy from Tal-Aviv to Jerusalem".
