Trump to General Assembly – Go ahead, make my day

They’ve picked on the wrong country and on the wrong president.

Nikki Haley is “taking names.” So is President Trump, of those who voted against us on Monday and plan to do so again on Thursday. 

Some call this a “veiled threat.” Nothing veiled about it if you know Trump. He said he’d declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel – and he delivered.

Which is precisely what’s got the nations in an uproar. So they want a recount of sorts.

Losers at the Security Council, they expect to become winners at the General Assembly. 

They’re calling it a UN EMERGENCY SESSION; so much in a rush are they to overturn Trump’s Jerusalem Doctrine. 

Trump can just as easily turn off the lights.

Count on the Palestinian Arabs to come up with something. This is their latest trick. 

Something like it happened before. If you remember your Bible, Balaam, the heathen profit-for-hire, kept going from hilltop to hilltop to curse Israel. But from any valley or mountain, the curses failed, and turned to blessings. But that did not keep him from trying and being ridiculous.

Yes ridiculous and now we get the picture of what they’re up to today from the PA and the UN, up to no good as usual…and thus to defeat Israel and to imprecate by any means and from any direction also the United States, and while they’re at it, President Trump. 

Trump is taking it as a personal affront. 

It’s the same to him whether the curses are coming from the Security Council or from the General Assembly…or from any other valley or mountain.

In fact, Trump is furious. He liked Nikki Haley’s “taking names” speech. He congratulated her. But he wants more…more names.

He told her so at Wednesday’s cabinet meeting. “Tell me the others,” he challenged her, as to the voting scheduled at Thursday’s General Assembly.

Payback sounds delicious and Trump is smarting for this fight. They’ve picked on the wrong country and on the wrong president.

Trump doesn’t retract. Trump doesn’t rescind. Trump doesn’t apologize. Above all not when it comes to Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital from the time of King David.

Bet on it – there will be a reckoning. Trump does not appreciate getting stabbed in the back, not for himself, not for the United States, and not for Israel.

How furious is Trump?  

Like this: “They take hundreds of millions and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. 

“Well, we’re watching those votes [from the General Assembly.] Let them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care.” 

That is nearly how we had it here just the other day: “Trump can tell the rest of them to go fly a kite. We don’t give a damn.”

What can he do? Plenty.
What can he do? Plenty.

Yes, he can cut foreign aid to the backstabbers, one nation at a time, or bring down the entire joint that stinks up New York at 1st Avenue between 42nd and 48th.

He can do it by cutting off or by cutting down the 22 percent we pay each year to support a place that exists only to serve as a petting zoo for the Palestinian Arabs. We pay in excess of $3 Billion year after year so that those scofflaws can denounce Israel every Monday and Thursday…and now, hello, the United States. 

It’s in Trump’s hands and they’d better watch out because he’s starting to enjoy this. 

The UN’s curses…Trump’s blessings…who is your money on?
