U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is not about to let America be insulted by another country and promptly shot back at a Muslim nation’s diplomat for calling the U.S. a bully.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Reuters’ Michelle Nichols referred to a “senior diplomat from a Muslim country” who reacted to a letter from Haley ahead of Thursday’s U.N. vote on a resolution to condemn the U.S. decision to move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
The unnamed diplomat complained about America’s “blatant bullying.”
A senior diplomat from a Muslim country, speaking on condition of anonymity, said of @nikkihaley‘s letter: “States resort to such blatant bullying only when they know they do not have a moral or legal argument to convince others.” https://t.co/x86IDjiDyL

But Haley shot right back with a tweet in response.
Actually it is when a country is tired of being taken for granted.

Haley has echoed President Donald Trump’s strong stand for America and, in a letter to the delegations of over 180 countries, warned that he would be watching the vote in the United Nations General Assembly “very carefully,” asking the ambassador to “report back on those countries who voted against us,” CBS News reported.

Haley also tweeted that the U.S. would be “taking names” in Thursday’s vote which is aimed at getting Trump to withdraw his administration’s decision to go ahead with the embassy’s move and, ultimately, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
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. pic.twitter.com/ZsusB8Hqt4

“As you know, the General Assembly is considering a resolution about President Trump’s recent decision on Jerusalem,” Haley wrote in the letter, according to CBS News. “As you consider your vote, I want you to know that the President and U.S. take this vote personally.”
Haley explained that 22 years ago, “the U.S. Congress declared that Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of Israel, and that the U.S. Embassy should be located in Jerusalem. President Trump affirmed that declaration by officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”
On Monday, the U.S. stood alone against 14 other nations to veto the United Nations Security Council draft resolution proposed by Egypt that criticized the U.S. decision on Jerusalem.
The president praised Haley during his Cabinet meeting at the White House Wednesday.
“I like the message that Nikki sent yesterday at the United Nations, for 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,” Trump said. “They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us, well, we’re watching those votes. Let ’em vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care. But this isn’t like it used to be where they could vote against you and then you pay them hundreds of millions of dollars and nobody knows what they’re doing,”
