This should come as no surprise, so what is the next step for the US. No one believes that the US is still independent and fair so now what, more of the same.

Punctuating America’s increasing international isolation, the United Nations Security Council demanded on Monday that the Trump administration rescind its decisions to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to put the United States Embassy there.
The demand, in a resolution that its backers knew would likely offend the United States, was vetoed by the American ambassador, Nikki R. Haley. She was alone.
Even America’s staunchest allies on the 15-member Council, the most powerful body in the United Nations system, voted for the resolution.

Good for the US, and well said by Nikki. The rest of the Israel hating world will just have to deal with it. Wompity womp womp.

She is fine now. When she was SC gov and was making all this stink about a Confederate flag over response to liberal hype, I didn't have nearly as much respect for her back then and thought she was just a big fat RINO.

How many times has the US supported a UN resolution to condemn Israel?
Something like 43 times we have used our VETO to protect Israel.
Obama abstained once.

Sounds like a great way to keep spending money on security in the Middle East!

Wonderful! The UN is a cancer on the USA and should be totally ignored.

Exactly. She's a rock star. Maybe she will run for president after Trump's second term.
