Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday that the women who have accused President Donald Trump of touching or groping them without their consent "should be heard".

Trump's announcement on Wednesday that the USA would recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and begin the process of moving its embassy there from Tel Aviv, was met with protests and violence from Palestinians. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

During an appearance on CNN's State of the Union this morning, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley was grilled by host Jake Tapper on the move, with the CNN anchor pressing her to explain how exactly this move helps the peace process between Palestinians and Israel.

The U.N. Security Council joined a chorus of voices in the worldwide community that condemned the decision, saying the move was "unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region".

Haley defended Trump's decision and said that such a reaction from the global community was expected.

The announcement by Trump on Wednesday to move the embassy from Tel Aviv and to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital roiled much of the worldwide community - including the Palestinians, whose seat of government is in east Jerusalem.

"Now let's try and move the ball". "I would not take it". They're going to decide what they think Jerusalem should look like.
