Trump Declares Billions Cut From 100 Nations – Sends Congress Scrambling

Democrats never thought Donald would do it – here it comes!

President Trump cares about cutting back waste—and his latest directive will save us a bundle.

You probably know America sends billions of dollars to countries around the world. We are the most generous nation on the planet, giving money to just about everyone.

Yet some of this money is wasted… or not even used!

So, Trump is not about to let those tax dollars get wasted. His latest move is sure to send Democrats reeling.

From Western Journal:

President Donald Trump will reportedly seek to freeze over $4 billion in aid to more than 100 countries for the current fiscal year…

“The 1974 budget law that created the current rescissions process allows the president to freeze spending on certain programs for 45 days of a continuous legislative session, while lawmakers weigh whether to approve the proposed cancellations.”

President Trump is about to freeze over $4 billion in aid to more than 100 countries. Democrats and some Republicans are already outraged, but he’s not backing down.

The United States dishes out money to everyone. Some of it isn’t even being used, as reportedly some nations—like Afghanistan—take money for “ghost soldiers” who do not exist.

In other cases, our money goes to fund “voluntary family planning” in Africa. We know what that is.

A bunch of our money is sent to provide solar panels in Central Asia, Guatemalan agriculture technology, crop diversity in Bangladesh, and desert survival courses in Egypt.

Damn, do these countries pay for anything themselves? Does America have to bankroll the entire planet?

Oh—and some of that money is going to secure the border… in El Salvador. Ironic, huh?

We have people living on the street, an opioid epidemic, and crime. Yet we have no problem shelling out billions to other countries?

And the American people are just supposed to be okay with that?

Congress might ultimately block his attempt to save Americans money. But it will only doom them.

Why should we keep supporting congressmen who want to throw our money away? It seems like only Donald Trump cares about saving us cash.

SHARE to thank Trump for bringing billions back to America!
