It’s payback time for disloyal U.N. member nations that betrayed the United States. And U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley is dishing out the karma.
Haley is hosting a party tonight for the 65 nations that did not vote against the United States at the U.N. General Assembly last month regarding Jerusalem.
“As I said in December, we won’t forget the Jerusalem vote,” Haley said Tuesday. “To that end, tomorrow night, we are having a reception for the countries who chose not to oppose the U.S. position. This is a great sign of U.S. friendship. We hope to see more of this in 2018.”
Haley added: “The United States is asked to do a huge amount around the world, and we are happy to do that. But we expect to be treated respectfully in return.”
President Trump suggested the U.S. could cut financial aid to the U.N. countries that voted to condemn its decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the U.S. Embassy there. Such a budget cut would save the United States more than $24 billion, the Daily Caller reported.
In December, 128 U.N. member nations voted to condemn President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as “null and void” during the U.N. General Assembly.
Nine countries voted against the condemnation (which means they support the United States), while 35 nations abstained. 21 countries were absent during the vote.
Among the countries that voted to condemn the U.S. were longtime “allies” Germany, France and the United Kingdom. Other key allies like Canada, Mexico, and Australia abstained from the vote. Nine countries, including Honduras, Guatemala and Palau, supported the U.S. decision.
The betrayal infuriated millions of Americans, many of whom demanded the U.S. defund the United Nations, since we get the least benefit out of the “alliance.”
As with most things the U.N. does, the vote carries no weight. It was more of a symbolic denunciation of the American gesture to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of its longtime ally Israel — the only true ally the United States has in the Middle East.
President Trump has repeatedly blasted the U.N. as a “sad,” useless social club that accomplishes nothing and wastes money.
Meanwhile, Nikki Haley reminded disloyal allies that the U.S. contributes far more money to the United Nations than all the other countries combined. And we will remember the countries who voted against us the next time they beg for help.
“We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations,” Haley promised. “And we will remember it when so many countries come calling on us — as they so often do — to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit.”
