After the United Nations vote to overwhelmingly denounce Trump’s decision to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Ambassador Nikki Haley sent out a party ‘invitation’. Did she invite all of our friends and allies, like the UK, France, and Japan? No. She only invited those countries that either voted No on the UN resolution, and those countries that chose to ‘Abstain’ from the vote.
Prior to the vote, Haley stated:
“The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in this assembly. We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution” to the UN and when other member nations ask Washington “to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit. And, this vote will be remembered.”
So, if you disagree with the United States, and if you choose to vote opposite of the US Ambassador, you will be put on a ‘list’. And. . . you will not be invited to a party.
What looks to be an episode of Mean Girls is really just a middle school squabble in the lunch room.
Ambassador Haley: It’s OK if other people disagree with you. If you need everyone to agree with you in order to be seen as legitimate, you will fail as badly as your president.
