America reduces its contribution to UN's annual budget by $285m

Trump Gets Real About the UN

"The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known", said US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.

As the United Nations was expected to vote in support of a resolution that condemned the U.S.'s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and plans to move its embassy there, President Donald Trump said, "They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us. well, we're watching those votes". Erdoğan's comments came after he was asked during a presser ahead of his official visit to Chad whether there will be new diplomatic steps taken by Turkey in addition to last Thursday's Jerusalem resolution vote in the United Nations General Assembly, which was passed by 128 votes in favor, nine against and 35 abstentions. Peters argued that the UN vote was an unimportant "tantrum" that the UN does all the time, no threats by the US would make Muslim nations vote with the USA and that the threat to cut funding was "ill-advised" and the US won't follow through on it.

"While we are pleased with the results of this year's budget negotiations, you can be sure we'll continue to look at ways to increase the UN's efficiency while protecting our interests", said Ambassador Haley.

Haley appeared to imply a sense of weariness from the United States for supporting a huge range of nations that would not support the USA in turn. "That vote at the Security Council and the General Assembly should be responded to and Nikki Haley, who has become a real hero, did exactly the right thing".

For that, Haskell says, he apologizes, adding "my mistake was a mistake of words". Mallory Hagan's appearance and sex life were mocked in the emails.

She also put up a list on Twitter, thanking countries who didn't defy the USA decision. I believe this mistake would not have been made if Mr. Trump had made his consultation with us.

The result of the vote also riled Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who called the United Nations a "house of lies". They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then vote against us.well, we are watching those votes.

Israel was the only country that praised the US decision. African countries, India, China, they are not going to vote with Israel right away.

Previously, Haley had already indicated that the names would be "targeted" by states that openly opposed the United Nations General Assembly.

Apple will put an EKG reader on Apple Watch (I doubt it)
As with all things in development at Apple, there's no guarantee the company will ever follow this reported project to fruition. But they only monitor the heart's activity for short periods, limiting their ability to spot potential abnormalities.

The United States has claimed it was "singled out" for a joint attack by the United Nations.

Those who condemned Trump's decision on Jerusalem, said in a text that they expresses deep regret at recent decision made by the US.

Mr Netanyahu said that despite the outcome "Jerusalem would always be our capital".
