PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Donald Trump is criticizing the Obama administration's decision to let the U.N. Security Council condemn Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. In a striking break from past practice, the United States abstained in today's vote -- allowing the U.N. Security Council to condemn the settlements as a "flagrant violation" of international law. In doing so, the Obama administration brushed aside Trump's demands that the U.S. exercise its veto. Trump says in a tweet, "Things will be different after January 20th."

DEARBORN, Mo. (AP) — Missouri authorities say an armed trucker is in custody after his hours-long standoff at a rest stop near Kansas City forced the closure of the freeway ahead of the holiday weekend. The patrol said the standoff began shortly before 9 a.m. following reports of a man pointing a rifle at traffic. Authorities evacuated the rest area, leaving only the unidentified trucker and officers. No shots were fired. Televised aerial footage shows traffic in both directions of I-29 backed up for miles.
