Today's vote by the United Nations General Assembly, rebuking President Trump's irresponsible move to unilaterally
recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, underscores Trump's flawed understanding of diplomacy and the heavy price
the US pays when it subjugates a calculated foreign policy and national security interests to domestic politics.
The UNGA vote – 128 countries voting against Trump's move, with only 9 in favor and 35 abstaining – is a slap in
the face of the US, a reality check for Israel, but also a welcome endorsement of the two-state solution and of
diplomacy as a tool for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It is a rebuke of Trump's unilateralism and a
bitter blow our country's global leadership role. "This is the price we pay for President Trump acting on a whim
and reversing a fifty-year-old policy carefully implemented by past presidents, Democrats and Republicans alike,"
said Debra DeLee, APN's President and CEO.
