Hegseth: UN Has Become 'Anti-Israeli, Anti-Semitic, Anti-American Cesspool'
UN condemns US moving embassy to Jerusalem.
"We will remember this day," said U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley before the member nations overwhelmingly passed the resolution by a 128-9 vote in a rare emergency session.
"We will remember it when we are called upon once again to make the world's largest contribution to the United Nations. And we will remember when so many countries come calling on us, as they so often do, to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit."

The measure stopped short of calling out President Trump by name. Just seven other states joined the U.S. and Israel in voting against the resolution, while there were 35 abstentions.
Reacting on "Outnumbered," Hegseth said no world organization should be able to tell the United States where to place an embassy.
"This is the world reacting to America First," he pointed out.
Hegseth blasted the United Nations as "an anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic, anti-American cesspool" that will condemn the United States whenever it has the opportunity.
