The resolution was the worldwide community's response to the Trump administration's declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and stated intention to move the USA embassy there. Amid Washington's threats, 35 of the 193 U.N. member nations abstained and 21 were absent.
"Damned if we voted for condemning the resolution and damned if we voted against".
When North Korea began the Korean War with an invasion of South Korea in June 1950, the armed response was waged under the flag of the United Nations thanks to the Soviet Union having absented itself from the Security Council.
The bill also proposed reducing US contributions to the United Nations by 25 percent each year over the four-year period until the USA left the organization entirely. Besides the United States and Israel, the only "no" votes came from some of the Pacific microstates among whom the United States usually gets support when the support is meager (Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, and Palau) as well as Guatemala, Honduras, and Togo.
This reaction was expected by the United States- Trump also laid out a similar threatening message before the meeting- saying he was keeping a watchful eye on the countries that would vote against the United States. We'll save a lot.

Haley said that the United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy.
Nikki Haley, the United States ambassador to the UN, has sent an invitation to a multinational party early in January.
"What she [Haley] did yesterday is just an embarrassment to the United States", Scarborough said. Rather, the aid is disbursed in order to safeguard-either directly or tacitly-US national interests. That assertion, known as the "Uniting for Peace" resolution, passed the General Assembly in November 1950. It is to be seen on whom U.S. will take its anger out on and cut help to major recipients of United States aid such as Egypt, Afghanistan and Iraq. "It is our American way". "Even knowing that, by abstaining we are not consistent with our established two-State position on the Palestine issue", the highly-respected diplomat said in a text message.
"We do this because it represents who we are. when we make generous contributions to the United Nations we also have a legitimate expectation that our goodwill is recognized", she said. "When a nation is singled out for attack in this organization that nation is disrespected".
