President Donald Trump is certainly no stranger to “resistance” of all kinds, and his team of go-getters has been prepared from the beginning for this struggle.
From the moment that Donald Trump emerged from the 2016 presidential contest as President Elect, there has been an overwhelming opposition to his every move ingrained in a number of highfalutin political figures, as well as the general liberal populace of much of the world. Trump knew that coming into the White House, and understood that his actions would need to be swift and stern in order to prove the doubters wrong.
In one of his most incredible decisions to date, the President moved to relocate the U.S. embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, an enormous decision that not only bolstered our nation’s relationship with Ally Numero Uno, but also irked a number of anti-American interests abroad. (That’s called a win-win in Trump’s language).
Of course, this move came with the predicted “resistance”, ranging from the individual lefty citizen all the way up to the United Nations who feebly attempted to block the President’s decision. That’s where ambassador Nikki Haley stepped into set the record straight on how America does business.
“Ignoring the fact that the United States has veto power, the United Nations prepared a resolution to ‘nullify’ President Donald Trump’s recent decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
“In what proved to be little more than spitting in the wind, the 15 member UN Security Council voted on the resolution on Monday, prompting the U.S. to exercise that power.
“U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley effectively told the UN where to shove the measure she called an ‘insult,’ saying a sovereign country ‘will not be told’ where it can locate its embassy.
“’The United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy,’ she declared.
“‘What we have witnessed here is an insult,’ Haley continued. ‘It won’t be forgotten. It is one more example of the UN doing more harm than good in addressing the Israeli Palestinian conflict.’”
While there were no mentions of Haley dropping the microphone and mouthing the word “boom” at the conclusion of her statement, one can only imagine that the sentiment surely existed within her own mind.
One again, the Trump administration has show the world that they will not tolerate globalist shenanigans on their watch. “America First” truly means America First when it comes to foreign policy, and Donald Trump has found himself once heck of a tenacious representative in Ambassador Nikki Haley.
