The money going to the PA/PLO has produced exactly zero benefits for the US. Cut the funding and after the "drama over-reactions" watch how quick Abbas and the gang chance their tones.
I think that the American people, regardless of the politics, support tying any foreign aid to support of US positions in the world.
GO TRUMP YOUR THE BEST
No Money ! No Money ! No Money !
Abbas, who doesn't own a business, has no assets, is worth over $100 million. Now where do you think he got all that money? I bet you all of it can be traced back to USA.
Trump: Defunded forced health care on the citizens. GDP at 4%. Approving pipeline to be built, which will bring countless jobs. Car manufacturers bringing jobs BACK to the USA. Unemployment at a low. Stock market on a record high. ISIS being pushed back. And here, he's simply saying he won't waste money on other countries that don't deserve it. Accomplished in ONE single year. Obama: NONE of these things in 8 years. Point: Trump is doing his job, so I really don't care if he's tweeting, golfing, or what he does with his free time.
In this instance Trump is correct. The cut to all funding is correct and in line with US stated policy. By their own admission over 50% of the "Palestinian Authority" budget goes on funding pensions for terrorists and their families. The interests of peace are best served by stopping the funding of terrorists.
What may or might? It should be SHALL!
There is no peace process.
What will Arafat's wife and Abbas do for money now?
Wouldn't it be nice to read news stories without the bias of the reporter? Fantasy! Perhaps we stop supporting the vile of the world. Pakistan harbored Bin Laden, Iran supports terrorism all over. Palestine gives pensions to families of bombers of innocents. Maybe Trump has a point?
