UN Slams Trump’s Jerusalem Decision
They’re not having it. More than 125 countries have backed a United Nations General Assembly resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. It’s non-binding, which means there’s no way for the UN to enforce its criticism, but the vote sends a clear message — one that’s been widely repeated since Trump’s controversial announcement earlier this month, which sparked protests in the Middle East and could produce further unrest. Many U.S. allies supported the resolution, even though Trump pledged to cut financial aid to countries that voted in favor of it.
