Donald Trump threatens Jerusalem opponents with United States funding cutoff

Turkey's president has heavily criticized U.S. President Donald Trump for threatening to cut off U.S. funding to countries that oppose his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us".

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley is threatening the 193 U.N. member states and the United Nations with funding cuts if the U.N. General Assembly approves a resolution calling President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital "null and void".

Jerusalem, revered by Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, has been at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for decades.

The General Assembly voted 128-9, with 35 abstentions, to declare USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital "null and void".

"We will remember it when we are called upon once again to make the world's largest contribution to the United Nations", Haley said.

Haley says Thursday's vote "will make a difference on how Americans look at the United Nations and on how we look at countries who disrespect us in the United Nations, and this vote will be remembered".

His warning did appear to have some impact with nine countries voting against the resolution and 35 abstaining.

"Mr Trump, you can not buy Turkey's democratic will with your dollars".

Grassi Investment Management Has Decreased Ibm Corporation (IBM) Stake by $4.56 Million
The stock of International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE: IBM ) earned "Buy" rating by Drexel Hamilton on Friday, October 9. Duncker Streett Co Incorporated has invested 0.85% of its portfolio in International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE: IBM ).

Speaking at a cultural awards ceremony in Ankara on Thursday, Erdogan accused Trump of seeking countries whose "decisions can be bought with dollars".

The move comes two weeks after Washington announced its decision to recognize the holy city as Israel's capital and begin the process to move its embassy there from Tel Aviv - the city where all other nations house their main diplomatic facilities.

On Twitter, Haley posted that "the United States will be taking names" when the ambassadors of the 193-nation assembly cast their vote on Thursday. Israel captured Arab East Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed it in an action not recognised internationally. The US will be taking names.

His announcement was widely condemned in capitals around the world, and provoked deadly protests in the Middle East.

The move has isolated Washington from nearly all its allies, and forced a rare United States veto of a UN Security Council resolution on Monday, when the 14 other council members, including the UK, voted to call for the U.S. recognition of its status as Israeli capital be rescinded.

While the five permanent members of the Security Council - the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China - had veto power in the first vote, there are no vetoes at the General Assembly.

Under a 1950 resolution, an emergency special session can be called for the General Assembly to consider a matter "with a view to making appropriate recommendations to members for collective measures" if the Security Council fails to act.
