Donald Trump brought out his inner middle-school boy attitude and pouted that the United Nations is criticizing him and the United States for unilaterally moving its embassy in Israel to the disputed city of Jerusalem, which the international community doesn't recognize as Israels capital. Trump cried that he doesn't care what other nations do and proceeded to threaten to revoke federal aid to any country which votes against the United States in the resolution, which he can't legally do because Congress appropriates that money.
Quote | Trump cried that nations will take US foreign aid, but still criticize us.
"All of these nations that take our money and then they vote against us at the Security Council or they vote against us, potentially, at the Assembly, they take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us,” Mr. Trump said. “Well, we’re watching those votes,” he added. “Let them vote against us; we’ll save a lot. We don’t care."
