  • United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley addresses the U.N. Security Council

A total of 128 of the 193-member UN General Assembly agreed to resolve the Holy City dispute through "negotiations in line with relevant UN resolutions" another 35 abstained from voting, and 21 were absent.

On Thursday's broadcast of the Fox Business Network's "Intelligence Report", Fox News strategic analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) argued that while the United States could have handled the United Nation's Jerusalem voter better than it did, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley "may end up as our first female president".

The announcement of the budget cut came after the UN General Assembly last week overwhelmingly approved a resolution denouncing President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

In spite of the threats of Donald Trump to countries that voted against him in the UN, 10 Latin nations had the courage to say NO to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

At a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Trump was quoted by the UK's The Guardian newspaper as saying, "Let them (Nigeria and other countries benefitting from the United States financial aids) vote against us".

The UN's budget has been slashed by more than $285 million, according to Ambassador Nikki Haley, who said the cost cuts gutted the organization's "bloated management".

Haley appeared to imply a sense of weariness from the United States for supporting a huge range of nations that would not support the U.S. in turn.

He added that the good Americans are exhausted of being taken advantage of, "well, we're not going to be taken advantage of any longer".

As reported in the United States and UK media, the American government said it would sanction Nigeria and other countries that voted against its decision. They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then vote against us.well, we are watching those votes.

Haley also threatened during her speech at the Security Council December 18 that she will use veto power during the voting to defend her country's sovereignty and the peace process in the Middle East. "We don't care", he added.

Previously, Haley had already indicated that the names would be "targeted" by states that openly opposed the United Nations General Assembly.

The 193-member General Assembly voted 128-9, with 35 abstentions, to express "deep regret" over Trump's Jerusalem policy changes, which also include plans to move the U.S. embassy to that city. The capital of Israel has always been Jerusalem.
