Fix it or ELSE! That’s the gist of this message and the UN had best listen up.
Sen. Ted Cruz may not have won the presidential election but his voice has hardly died away, and his political influence hasn’t waned in the least. In fact, Cruz just this week took a strong stance on something the White House under President Obama did, and it meant facing down not just the administration, but also the United Nations.
In a blunt statement, Cruz took aim at the recent U.N. resolution that Obama could’ve stopped, but didn’t. It builds on Trump’s well-documented Twitter vow to change things when he enters office on January 20.
The issue, of course, was the resolution that demanded Israel stop its builds in the settlements lands. And Cruz made clear he wasn’t happy with the Obama administration’s decision to abstain from voting, a decision that basically left Israel swinging in the cold.
This is Cruz throwing down the hammer, as Independent Journal Review reported:
“Reverse the decision or risk the loss of funding from the United States.”
Bam. It just doesn’t get any clearer than that, does it? And it doesn’t end there because Cruz clearly is appalled at what transpired in the recent week and had more to say on the issue. In a tweet, Cruz said:
“Spoke w/ Israeli PM @netanyahu tonight to wish him Happy Chanukah & assure him of strong support in Congress. No US $ for UN until reversed.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested he was on board with such a stern response, reminding Newsmax readers in an interview that the United States currently funds the global body to the tune of 22 percent of its overall budget.
As IJR reported: “The UN Security Council voted 14-0 against Israel, with the U.S. abstaining, rather than vetoing the resolution.”
Cruz, Trump, the GOP, and the American people in general aren’t happy about this, plain and simple.
