Trump Threatens to Cut Foreign Aid to Countries That Vote to Forbid the US from Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's Capital

The good sort of Trumpian: people don't like being played for chumps, and Trump gives voice to that.

"They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. Well, we're watching those votes. Let them vote against us. We'll save a lot. We don't care," Trump told reporters at the White House.

The US already vetoed this attempt in the Security Council, but now they're having a meaningless vote on it in the General Assembly:

The 193-member U.N. General Assembly will hold a rare emergency special session on Thursday -- at the request of Arab and Muslim countries -- to vote on a draft resolution, which was vetoed by the United States on Monday in the 15-member U.N. Security Council.

Nikki Haley is reinforcing Trump's threat.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, in a letter to dozens of U.N. states on Tuesday seen by Reuters, warned that Trump had asked her to "report back on those countries who voted against us."

She bluntly echoed that call in a Twitter post: "The U.S. will be taking names."

Meanwhile, the ninnies who cry that #TrumpIsKillingUsAll are, alas, still with us.

Do you remember the three freak-outs recently in which the ninnies claimed Trump was "killing us"?

I do.

Here's Trump's MURDER SPREE in progress:

1. Forcing the #VulnerablePoor into a THUNDERDOME of JOB OFFERS and CASH BONUSES

2. Repealed an FCC ruling which progressive hysterics claimed would make FaceBook postings PUNISHABLE BY SPIDERS

3. Recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, plunging the Middle East into a state of unrest not seen since LAST WEDNESDAY
