US President Donald Trump has threatened to cut off financial aid to countries that back a United Nations resolution opposing the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Earlier this month, President Trump took that step amid international criticism.

He told reporters at the White House that they take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against the US.

He said, "Let them vote against us. We'll save a lot. We don't care."

His comments come ahead of a UN General Assembly vote on a resolution opposing any recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
