    Angry countries at the United Nations on Thursday defied White House threats to cut off foreign aid, as they voted overwhelmingly against President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

    At an emergency special session of the U.N. General Assembly, 128 U.N. members voted in favor of a nonbinding resolution criticizing Trump for the move, while nine nations voted against it and 35 countries abstained.

    But in blistering speeches preceding the vote, several nations made their fury clear not only with Trump's precedent-breaking announcement on Jerusalem earlier this month, but with threats from Trump and the U.S. ambassador to the U.N.,, Nikki Haley, who had tweeted that the U.S. would be "taking names" of countries backing the resolution.

    The list as shared shoes the place of Nigeria as one of the top 10 benefinary of the United States Aid among several other Africa countries. South Africa’s representative to the U.N. also ripped Trump’s decision — which broke with decades of precedent regarding U.S policy on the status of Jerusalem — as "not conducive to advancing a sustainable solution" concerning Middle East peace.

    In speeches to the assembly, representatives from China, Malaysia and many other nations, also expressed their support for the resolution.

    After the vote, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif took to Twitter to hit Trump and celebrate the adopted resolution.
