…I’m sorry, I can’t stop laughing.
Give me a second.
Obama, you must be absolutely IRATE. Donald Trump just totally froze you out COLD. Okay, okay, moving on:
It’s no secret President Trump isn’t afraid to take on whatever political forces are opposing his agenda to Make America Great Again at all costs. He’s on the warpath and the country is already feeling the healthy vibes. Didn’t you just love the massive illegal immigration executive order he just passed yesterday?
Others were big fans of the Pro-Life abortion order that certainly sent liberals into a tizzy, and then there was another huge move, which involved leaving the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership Pact) and while controversial, it was still very, very big.
Now, he has targeted former president Barack Obama’s widely criticized move that involved another little “gift” to Palestine.
You remember, don’t you? Obama quietly tried to send $221 million to Palestine just before leaving office, much to the chagrin of…well, most of the world.
When he gave the go-ahead in his final hours at the White House for his secretary of state, John Kerry, to send all of those U.S. taxpayer dollars to the Palestinian Authority, America’s conservatives opened eyes wide. The payment, after all, had been opposed by Republicans and halted by two GOPers from going forth.
But Obama sent the money anyway.
So Trump’s response? Well, according to The Times of Israel, it’s as follows:
“The Trump administration has informed the Palestinian Authority that it is freezing the transfer of $221 million which was quietly authorized by the Obama administration in its final hours on January 20, a senior Palestinian source has told The Times of Israel.”
The money was supposed to be used for aid to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.
But everybody knows it would be used for political reasons, as well, and given the Palestinians and their supporters at the United Nations have a mission to wipe Israel off the face of the map, the use of U.S. dollars to the Palestinian Authority is anti-Israel at best, outright aiding and abetting the mass murder of Jews, at worst. Israel, with Trump in office, finally has a real ally in America again, it seems.
