U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley is not mincing words, while referencing an upcoming vote from the United Nations General Assembly.

The UN General Assembly will be voting on Thursday in an emergency session, and it all centers on President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and that we’ll be moving our embassy in Israel there (eventually).

The vote involves a resolution to ask the U.S. to reverse the move and “un-recognize” Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Like that is going to happen.

The anticipated General Assembly vote comes days after Haley vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution that would seek to nullify any move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. That resolution did not specifically mention Trump or the U.S., but was a clear effort to rebuke the president.

Haley defended the veto on Monday, saying that the Security Council resolution was an affront to U.S. sovereignty.

“What we witnessed here in the Security Council is an insult,” she said. “It won’t be forgotten.”

And she means that, too.

Regarding the upcoming vote, Ambassador Haley tweeted out:

Good for her.

The vote on Thursday is pretty meaningless, and is meant more to send a message than anything else.

I’d say the message Haley is sending back is pretty awesome.
