Togo was the only African state to vote against a UN General Assembly resolution effectively calling on the US to withdraw its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Many African states – including South Africa, Nigeria and Ethiopia – voted for the resolution, while others – such as Uganda, Rwanda and South Sudan – abstained.
On Wednesday, Mr Trump warned he might cut financial aid to states who voted in favour of the resolution while the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said the US would be “taking names” and “watching carefully” how countries voted.
Botswana – a staunch US ally – dismissed the threat, saying it would not be “intimidated” as it voted in favour of the resolution.
Togo was one of only nine states to vote against it. The others were Israel, Guatemala, Honduras, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and the US.
