UN votes resoundingly to reject Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as capital

As I mentioned yesterday, the Americans are taking a lot of names. It's much easier to take the names of those who supported Trump, because only seven countries in the entire world supported the USA and Israel in the voting, and all of those are minor entities: Guatemala, Honduras, Togo, Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, Nauru and Palau. Added together, those countries represent only 33 million people, less than the state of California. Those last four only have about two hundred thousand people added together.

US allies voting against the move included all the economic powerhouses: Britain, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan. (Unsurprisingly, Russia and China also voted against the move. Et tu, Vlad?)

US allies abstaining included: Canada, Australia, Mexico and Poland.
