Meadows Applauds U.S. Veto of Anti-Israel Resolution

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) released the following statement applauding the United States’ veto of a United Nations Security Council resolution that would have required the President to rescind the Trump Administration’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's undivided capital:

“Today, it was reaffirmed: when it comes to the United States’ leadership on the world stage, there is a new sheriff in town. President Trump gave his word throughout his campaign and the first year of his presidency that he would be an unwavering supporter of our ally, Israel—and once again, he’s delivered. The United Nations' constant attempts to delegitimize Israel in the Middle East while undermining the United States' sovereignty are shameful. By vetoing today’s resolution, America is sending a crystal clear message that we will no longer tolerate the UN's blatant anti-Israel bias that does far more damage than assistance toward peace efforts in the region.

I applaud President Trump and Ambassador Haley for their willingness to lead. America stands with Israel, once again.”
