Donald Trump was elected to put America first.
Voters were fed up with the open borders and mass migration schemes promoted by the globalists.
Trump announced one huge decision that made leaders across the globe sit up and take notice.
The administration announced they were freezing $125 million in funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).
UNRWA provides taxpayer money to Palestinian refugees.
Trump believes the organization favors Islamists over Israel and froze the money.
“The Trump administration has frozen $125 million in funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which provides aid to Palestinian refugees, according to three Western diplomats who were informed of the move. They said the funding, one third of the annual U.S. donations to the agency, was supposed to be transferred by Jan. 1 but was withheld.
Why it matters: A funding freeze could be seen as a slap against the organization — which the U.S. and Israel consider to be biased against Israel and too politicized — and an attempt to pressure the Palestinians to return to peace talks with Israel. But a State Department official said that the fact the money wasn’t transferred on Jan. 1 doesn’t mean it was frozen. “There are still deliberations taking place, and we have until mid January to decide what we are going to do,” the official said.
The details: The diplomats, who asked to speak on conditions of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter, said the funding was frozen until the Trump administration finishes its review of U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority.
The move comes after the Palestinian Authority suspended their contacts with the Trump administration in response to its decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. A senior White House official said no decision have been made yet, but confirmed that a review of the U.S. assistance to the Palestinians is underway “in light of the Palestinians’ recent conduct.”
The diplomats added that U.S. officials told U.N. officials in the last two days that President Trump is considering totally cutting the part of the funding which was frozen, and is even considering cutting up to $180 million, which amounts to half of the U.S. funding to UNRWA.”
Trump retains the loyalty of his supporters because he continues to keep his promises.
Organizations like the United Nations – and their refugee program – put the interests of American citizens last even though they suck up our taxpayer dollars.
Shutting off the flow of taxpayer funds is another front in Trump’s battle to upend the globalist status quo.
