Jerusalem UN vote: Trump threatens US aid recipients -per BBC News

'US President Donald Trump has threatened to cut off financial aid to countries that back a United Nations resolution opposing the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Earlier this month, Mr Trump took that step amid international criticism.

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

His comments come ahead of a UN General Assembly vote on a resolution opposing any recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.'

Quite right President Trump; countries are entitled to push their anti-semitic agendas, but they must realise that there may be consequences. Of course the BBC will scream about the unfairness of the USA reacting via the wallet but why shouldn't President Donald Trump use that weapon?
