US President Trump is threatening to cut off aid to UN member states that vote against the US at the UN General Assembly; on the issue of recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. He said the US “could save billions” in the process.
President Trump went ahead with his declaration earlier this month, despite multiple warnings against doing so. “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 said.
