The USA has been paying bribery money to countries who don’t like us for a way too long. It is time to stop sending money to those that hate us and keep the money in our own country. It is time to use the money to help the children and poor people in the good old United States.
Via Conservative Tribune: “This week the State Department announced it intends to not only withhold $45 million in aid to the Palestinians, but also an additional “$65 million it had planned to pay the U.N. agency that serves the Palestinians,” according to Reuters.
That agency is the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA. Talk about killing two birds with one stone.
It's not only Pakistan that we pay billions of dollars to for nothing, but also many other countries, and others. As an example, we pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue…

As a reminder, in 2015 alone the Obama administration gave UNRWA a whopping $380 million, $20 million of which went toward “Gaza Recovery & Reconstruction,” according to its own financial records.
“At this time, we will not be providing that, but that does not mean — I want to make it clear — that does not mean that it will not be provided in the future,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said this week, referencing the $45 million originally meant for the Palestinians.
It would help too were the Palestinian Authority to stop treating convicted terrorists as martyrs. For instance, The Jerusalem Post notes that the PA “paid terrorists and their families over $347 million last year.”
“So we’re asking countries to do more,” she said. “Fundamentally, we just don’t believe that we have to be the chief donor to every organization around the world.”
Interestingly, other countries that were previously hesitant about pitching in have already begun sending money to UNRWA because of the Trump administration’s willingness to stand up for itself.
“Belgium on Wednesday pledged to allocate $23 million to UNRWA, the UN agency for ‘Palestinian refugees’, following the U.S. decision to cut by half the funding it provides to the agency,” Arutz Sheva revealed this week.”
Thank God for President Trump. Now, adults are actually in charge of the country now. We finally have a President that is doing a job other Presidents should have been doing years ago!! He stops sending money to a state that has been less than an ally of the USA!
At last, we have a President that is putting America first and he is not throwing taxpayers money away. Trump knows that money is a powerful thing. It is indeed a weapon and he knows how to use it! President Trump deserves our thanks for this brilliant move.
Do you agree with President Trump?
