On December 8, Nikki Haley, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, gave the speech below to the United Nations after the organization attempted to pass a resolution blocking President Trump from moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Since when does the United Nations tell countries where their capitals are?

Below is a portion of what Ambassador Haley said:
And finally, I will not let this moment pass without a comment about the United Nations itself. Over many years the United Nations has outrageously been at the world’s foremost centers of hostility towards Israel. The U.N. has done much more damage to the prospects for Middle East peace than to advance them. We will not be a party to that. The United States no longer stands by when Israel is unfairly attacked in the United Nations. And the United States will not be lectured to by countries that lack any credibility when it comes to treating both Israelis and Palestinians fairly.
It’s nice that the Trump Administration is remembering who our friends are.
