Ambassador Nikki Haley praises reduced United Nations 2018-2019 budget

Trump Gets Real About the UN

Trump Gets Real About the UN

Only nine countries agreed on recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital, while 128 voted against, Iceland amongst them.

A retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel sees potential in a woman becoming the first female president-and it isn't Hillary Clinton.

Notable abstentions included US allies Canada and Australia, as well as others like Mexico and Argentina.

Both President Donald Trump and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley levied threats against the countries that condemned the U.S.' decision to recognize and move its embassy to Jerusalem.

Haley said the budget negotiations had generated several "successes" with financial cutbacks and a reduction of the UN's "bloated management and support functions".

Peters praised Haley, who prior to the vote stated the resolution could prompt the U.S.to pull funding from the United Nations, but also cautioned against making threats "you're not prepared to carry out".

"We do this because it represents who we are. when we make generous contributions to the United Nations we also have a legitimate expectation that our goodwill is recognized", she said.

On Fox Business Network's Intelligence Report, Peters said he fully supports moving the USA embassy to Jerusalem and "God knows we can use a tougher line at the United Nations", but that the matter could been handled a little bit better.

Allies of the United States did not vote against the USA decision to "bully" it- the U.S. should remember its mistake in Iraq, where the UN voted against invading it- and realize that this resolution was for the sake of the world's peace. "We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked", the USA ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said.
