President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the United States on Thursday it could not buy Turkey’s support in a vote at the United Nations on Jerusalem, and said he hoped the world would teach Washington a lesson.

“Mr. Trump, you cannot buy Turkey’s democratic will with your dollars,” Erdogan said after US President Donald Trump threatened to cut aid to countries that support a draft UN resolution calling for the United States to withdraw its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

“I hope and expect the United States won’t get the result it expects from there (the United Nations) and the world will give a very good lesson to the United States,” Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara.
