NEWS DESK: Over 120 countries defied President Donald Trump on Thursday and voted in favor of a United Nations General Assembly resolution calling for the US to drop its recent recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

On the issue, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the 193-member General Assembly ahead of Thursday’s vote that the "United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation".

"America will put our embassy in Jerusalem," she said. "That is what the American people want us to do and it is the right thing to do. No vote in the United Nations will make any difference on that. But this vote will make a difference on how Americans look at the UN, and on how we look at countries who disrespect us in the UN. And this vote will be remembered.”
