Yesterday, Obama quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking. Obama had to get his last shot in against Israel before leaving office.
Even though the dirty move was made just hours before Trump took office, President Trump was not going to stand idly by and do nothing. The Times of Israel reported today that Palestinians are outraged because Obama’s 221 million dollar payout has been FROZEN by Trump!
“US officials conveyed to PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah on Tuesday that the funds were not expected to be handed over in the immediate future, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
On Tuesday, the State Department said it was reviewing the last-minute decision by former secretary of state John Kerry to send the funds to the Palestinians despite objections to the transfer by congressional Republicans.
The department said it would look at the payment and might make adjustments to ensure it comports with the Trump administration’s priorities.”
It looks like that money may not make it into the hands of Israel’s enemies after all! This is what happens when you have a President who actually CARES about helping our allies!! Thank you President Trump and keep up the good work!
