We can clearly see that Nikki Haley was not kidding when she said she’d remember those who voted to condemn the U.S. after President Trump made his Israel decision.
According to Reuters, the United States has frozen $125 million in aid to Palestinian refugees pending a review of the aid to the Palestinian Authority:
The United States has frozen $125 million in funding for a U.N. agency that provides aid to Palestinian refugees, Axios news site reported on Friday, days after President Donald Trump threatened to withhold future aid payments to Palestinians.
The funding, a third of the annual U.S. donation to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, was supposed to be delivered by Jan. 1 but was frozen until the U.S. government finishes its review of aid to the Palestinian Authority, Axios reported, citing three unidentified Western diplomats.
This comes after Trump said that if Palestine is “no longer willing to talk peace” with Israel, then he would break their bank.
”We pay HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel … with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?” Trump tweeted.
This will be welcome news to many taxpayers, as the Palestinian Authority actually pays terrorists who murder innocent Jews a monthly salary based on how many Jews they kill. The U.S. is known to have given $133 million in 2016 alone.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is currently working on a bill that will eliminate payments to Pakistan, as well, after Trump also launched after the country for eating U.S. money while being a state sponsor of terrorism.
