United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley announced she will be hosting a reception to thank countries for their “friendship to the United States.” The catch? She only invited a select group – representatives from countries who didn’t vote against the United States for officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Prior to the vote, Haley warned that America was going to put their embassy in Jerusalem regardless of the UN vote, and that the Trump Administration would remember who voted against America’s interests.
“America will put our embassy in Jerusalem,” she told the assembly. “That is what the American people want us to do. And it is the right thing to do. No vote in the UN will make any difference on this.”

“On Thursday there’ll be a vote criticizing our choice,” Haley said on social media. “The US will be taking names.”
She was right – but who knew it’d be for a guest list to a fancy pro-America soiree?
Haley tallied up the nations who voted in outright support of the U.S., those who abstained, or those who refused to show up for the vote, and sent them a post-New Year’s party invite.
The event will be held on January 3rd with further details to follow.

Perhaps they can use some of the funding they had earmarked for those countries who voted against America to help pay for the party. Now that they won’t be getting as much anymore.
“Let them vote against us,” Trump scoffed. “We’ll save a lot. We don’t care.”

Americans are “tired of this country being taken advantage of and we’re not going to be taken advantage of any longer,” he declared.
