Mexico and Canada abstained from the vote, which could be seen as a continental understanding that Trump. Is. Temporary.

The vote was to declare "President Donald Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital null and void."

Because it is.

And Nikki Haley went so Mean Girl far as to say she wondered why Israel was even a MEMBER of the UN and what, Nikki, took their unacknowledged nuclear arsenal and went home?

"I have often wondered why, in the face of such hostility, Israel has chosen to remain a member of this body. Then I remember that Israel has chosen to remain in this institution because it's important to stand up for yourself. Israel must stand up for its own survival as a nation. But it also stands up for the ideals of freedom and human dignity that the United Nations is supposed to be about."

Oh, you know. Human dignity is that thing? Nikki Haley sold? For a job speaking for Trump at the UN.

As I wrote earlier today, this is just a suck up to the far religious right, whose motives for wanting Jerusalem as Israel's capital have more to do with the book of Revelation and nothing to do with peace on Earth, goodwill toward men.
