Ambassador Nikki Haley has already put the United Nations on notice that “the U.S. will be taking names” when the UN votes Thursday on a resolution condemning the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump sweetened the pot, telling reporters that the U.S. just might withhold foreign aid from countries that vote in favor of the resolution and against the U.S.

“We’ll save a lot.” We do have our doubts about Trump now and then, but that line is classic. Let’s hear it again:

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday threatened to cut off financial aid to countries that vote in favor of a draft United Nations resolution calling for the United States to withdraw its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
“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 them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

There are moments, like this one, that I actually appreciate having Donald Trump as President. They're few. But they exist. https://t.co/mkpVRwDDAw

I get the feeling the headlines for this are intended to make me less supportive of or angry at Trump.
They don't. https://t.co/4jtO5ZLXnG

This is exactly what the progressive Wilsonian internationalists hate about the president both substantively and stylistically. The American people writ large on the other hand get it. https://t.co/4m6MU0RSlx

Fact Check: We would indeed save a lot.
This is actually leading into very good projections when it comes to foreign policy under this administration. Stellar work https://t.co/lnGJSG8Ez8
