'The UN General Assembly has voted 128 to 9 to adopt a motion rejecting the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
That is despite the US President threatening to cut billions of dollars in aid to countries that dared to defy him.
The UK was among those countries to vote against Trump, putting further pressure on the 'special relationship' after the pair got into a war of words when Trump retweeted several Britain First videos earlier this month.
May and Trump did speak on the phone over the Jerusalem issue after Britain opposed America in a similar vote which took place yesterday.
Downing Street admitted after the call that the leaders had taken 'different positions'. There was no mention of the Britain First videos during the call, according to a transcript released by Number 10.
Trump had said ahead of the vote that 'we're watching' the outcome, while Nikki Haley, his representative, had warned that the US would be 'taking names'.
Seven countries - Guatemala, Honduras, Togo, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and the Marshall Islands - joined Israel and the United States in opposing the measure.
Among the 35 countries that abstained were Argentina, Australia, Canada, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Mexico, the Philippines, Romania and Rwanda.
Ukraine, which supported the draft resolution at the Security Council, was among 21 countries that did not turn up for the vote.'
