Turkey signals new steps to block Trump's Jerusalem move

President Donald Trump did the right thing in recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, said Dershowitz, as it "struck the balance that President [Barack] Obama had undone when he changed the status quo at the end of his presidency by declaring the Western Wall, the Jewish quarter".

The resolution, backed by nations with long records of extreme human rights abuses, passed 128-9 last Thursday. This combined with the number of countries who rejected the resolution showed more division than usually seen in issues surrounding Palestine.

Nauert said at a press conference in Washington that the president, Donald Trump, "granted power" to the State Department to study possible responses to the outcome of the United Nations vote.

Reacting to the UN resolution, the US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, had said, "Unlike some UN member countries, the United States government is answerable to its people; as such, we have an obligation to acknowledge when our political and financial capital is being poorly spent". Let them vote against us.

As the United Nations was expected to vote in support of a resolution that condemned the U.S.'s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and plans to move its embassy there, President Donald Trump said, "They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us. well, we're watching those votes".

'The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known, ' Haley said.

"You can be sure we'll continue to look at ways to increase the UN's efficiency while protecting our interests", she added. It did not pass when the US used its veto.

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. "Israel has established very good relations with some central and South American countries".

Nikki Haley, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, prepares to speak on the floor of the General Assembly on December 21, 2017 in New York City. "But this vote will make a difference to how Americans look at the United Nations and on how we look at countries (that) disrespect us in the United Nations and this vote will be remembered". Today, we acknowledge that Jerusalem is the Israeli capital.
