UN Jerusalem Resolution: How Each Country Voted

It's payback time and America, under strong and great new leadership, will be  putting herself first.  And we don't see any reason to award special consideration to those countries who merely "abstained".

We look forward to seeing how the UN vote to declare US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital "null and void" will be enforced.  What should be as "null and void" as the League of Nations, is the UN itself.

Look out world, America is back!

Britain Just Betrayed America at the United Nations

Theresa May has betrayed the British people in their quest to be free of the European Union, so it is not surprising that she has betrayed America too.

All other 14 Security Council members supported the anti-American resolution.
