The results of a vote are posted in the General Assembly on December 21, 2017, at United Nations headquarters. The U.N. General Assembly voted 128-9 with 35 abstentions on Thursday in favor of a nonbinding resolution declaring President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital "null and void," a smaller margin than the Palestinians hoped for but also a rebuke to the U.S. which is threatening to cut funding for those who voted "yes."
