The United States Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has been pushing back against the UN hard for voting against the President’s Jerusalem decision. “The United States is, by far, the single largest contributor to the United Nations and its agencies,” said Haley in a speech to the UN.
“When we make generous contributions to the U.N., we also have a legitimate expectation that our goodwill is recognized and respected,” Haley said.”When a nation is singled out for attack in this organization, that nation is disrespected. What’s more, that nation is asked to pay for the privilege of being disrespected. In the case of the United States, we are asked to pay more than anyone else for that dubious privilege,” she continued.
“This vote will be remembered. We will remember when we are called on once again to make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations. And we will remember it when so many countries come calling on us as they so often do to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit,” she said.
President Trump backed up Haley and threatened to stop funding the countries that voted against his decision. How did CNN respond to all of this? By calling Haley a diplomatic prostitute.
“Let me be blunt here, Wolf. This is diplomatic prostitution. We’re telling people, unless you vote with us, we’re not going to give you money and if your heart doesn’t agree with American policies we’re not going to support you in terms of U.S. aid,” said CNN counterintelligence analyst Phil Mudd.
