Trump To Cut Foreign Aid All Over the World – But Palestinians Will Receive More

TEL AVIV – The Trump administration is gearing up for major cuts in U.S. foreign aid across the world with the notable exception of the Palestinian territories, which will receive increased funding, State Department documents obtained by Foreign Policy magazine show.

The documents, part of an internal budget proposal for 2018, seem to confirm the State Department and USAID’s 28 percent budget cut announced in March.

    Strange but at least the Embassy is in Jewrusalem, no?

      Ain’t gonna happen.

      Trump is acting like a Democrat plant.

      Israel should start building many small, tactical nukes. Many, many of them.
      Like the old Davey Crocket system.

    Heh ,sure. He can’t fart without some judge putting a stop to it.

      This is true. However he seems rather wimpy and just excepts it. He needs to grow some gonads and go after these idiot judges or he will spend the next four years behind the eight ball.

    Probably overdue raises for the shaky CIA informants high up in the rival gangster governments in gaza and ramallah.

    Obviously he’s trying to bribe the Palestinians to do something.
    I wished he would tell them to go to hell and let the Israelis do what they need to do.
    One day that dream will be a reality.

    The Palestinian government is like a business that continues to receive corporate welfare. Their business is a combination of a perpetual victimization business and terrorism. So instead of getting penalized for this which would happen in a sane world instead they are continually rewarded by the west for their failures. Welfare rewards failure and in this case terrorism. It is time to stop rewarding failed societies such as Palestinians and the entire Islamic world for that matter instead of propping them up.

      What we do is actually bomb places into being failed states, THEN prop them up.

        The vast failure of the PLO-Hamas entity is not Israel’s fault, if that’s what you are suggesting.

  • Brett_McS

    Keeping in mind the possibility that this is coming from Obama hold-overs.

    • Alain

      True, but then Trump is not obligated to go along with it.

    • WalterBannon

      Like Ivanka.

      Oh, wait, you said holdovers, not clones.
