U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Tuesday the U.S. "will be taking names," when the U.N. General Assembly votes this week on a resolution calling on the Trump administration to reverse its move recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Haley tweeted:

The U.N. Security Council resolution sought to nullify Trump's move, but Haley quickly vetoed it, saying: "The United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy."

The U.N. is now taking the measure before the general assembly, and Trump will be formally asked to rescind his statement if that vote passes. The U.S. has no veto power in the general assembly.
