Texas Senator Ted Cruz is reaching out to for Congress to cease finance to the United Nations following a settlement passed Friday.

The settlement, passed by the UN Security Council, formally labeled Israeli negotiations in Palestinian region illegal, and demanded that “Israel immediately and completely cease all negotiation activities.”

Fourteen of the fifteen voting members of the Security Council elected in favor of the resolution, with the United States abstaining. This, despite the fact that the United States had the option to veto the initiative.

Going after the vote, Cruz took to Twitter on Saturday, saying he spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to ensure him of strong support in Congress.

” No US $ for UN until reversed,” Cruz added.

Cruz is coming out with support for Sen. Lindsey Graham’s effort to pull seeking from the United Nations except if the resolution is repealed.

Graham issued a statement after the vote, naming the Obama-Kerry foreign policy “flat-out reckless.”

“I anticipate this vote will create a backlash in Congress against the United Nations. The organization is increasingly viewed as anti-Semitic and seems to have lost all sense of proportionality,” Graham said in his statement.

“I will do everything in my power, working with the new administration and Congress, to leave no doubt about where America stands when it comes to the peace process and where we stand with the only true democracy in the Middle East, Israel,” Graham explained to CNN in an interview.

Graham won’t acquire push back from President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming presidency.

“Peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties, and not through the imposition of terms by the United Nations. This puts Israel in a very poor negotiating position, and is extremely unfair to all Israelis,” Trump said in a statement following the poll.

Also in reference to the UN, Trump published “things will be different after Jan. 20th,” in a tweet on Friday.
