Donald warned them—so now he’s taking decisive action.
Trump didn’t come to Washington to maintain the status quo. He came to shake things up, and one of his top priorities has been reevaluating outdated and corrupt programs that are draining the U.S. taxpayers dry.
A particular thorn in Trump’s side is the amount of money we give to the UN. This globalist institution is largely funded by the United States, and yet the UN spends much of its time criticizing the United States.
The president isn’t having it, and has called on other countries to start paying their share. During the G7 summit in June, the president made it clear that he wants to put an end to people taking advantage of America.
“We’re like the piggy bank that everybody’s robbing,” the president stated.
The international community has denounced the president’s “America First” stance, because they know the jig is up and the gravy train is about to come to a stop now that we have a president aware of their schemes.
Now an “irredeemably flawed” program is on its death bed, and our greatest ally in the Middle East is thanking the president for making it happen.
From Times of Israel:
The Trump administration announced Friday it is cutting nearly $300 million in planned funding for the UN agency that aids Palestinian refugees, and that it would no longer fund the agency after decades of support. Instead, it said it would seek other channels by which to aid the Palestinians.
The administration castigated the UN’s Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) for failed practices, and indicated that it rejected the criteria by which UNRWA defines Palestinian refugees, whereby the UN agency confers refugee status not only on original refugees but on their millions of descendants.
The State Department said in a written statement that the United States “will no longer commit further funding to this irredeemably flawed operation.”
Overall the US provides a whopping 30% of the UNRWA budget, and in 2016 the agency received a $355 million gift from the American people.
Currently this program “provides health care, education, and social services to Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.”
Gee, don’t you think our own citizens deserve some of these services before we give it away to people in countries who hate us?
Not to mention the fact that the UNRWA funds are being severely abused by the Palestinians, who gave refugee status to 5 million people.
The US now only officially recognizes several hundred thousand of these individuals as legitimate refugees.
Richard Goldberg, an advisor to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, believes that revoking the refugee status of Palestinians will finally force them to become productive members of society.
“Removing the label of “refugee” from millions of Palestinians wouldn’t hurt them. Instead, it would unlock their economic potential and create an opportunity for lasting peace. Perhaps that’s why the Palestinian leadership is fighting it. Once the refugee issue is exposed as a scam, Palestinian leaders would have to learn how to govern, not merely stir up antagonism with Israel.”
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is grateful to the US for finally exposing the Palestinian refugee scam.
“Israel supports the move because UNWRA is one of the main problems perpetuating the conflict,” Netanyahu’s office stated.
Under Obama, our allies did not trust us and our enemies did not fear us.
But under Trump, all of this is finally beginning to change.
