U.S. President Donald J. Trump threatened funding cuts for unspecified countries as the U.N. General Assembly prepared to vote on condemning Washington’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“All these nations that take our money and then vote against us at the Security Council and they vote against us potentially at the Assembly,” Mr. Trump said at the White House.

“They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us. Well, we’re watching those votes,” he continued.

“Let them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care.”
