When President Donald Trump suggested on Twitter earlier this month that he might cut off aid to the terror-affiliated Palestinians, whom former President Barack Obama had coddled like children, he meant every word of it — and more.

This week the State Department announced it intends to not only withhold $45 million in aid to the Palestinians, but also an additional “$65 million it had planned to pay the U.N. agency that serves the Palestinians,” according to Reuters.

Agency - UN - Relief - Works - Agency

That agency is the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA. Talk about killing two birds with one stone.

Below is Trump’s original tweet:

Reminder - Obama - Administration - UNRWA - Gaza

As a reminder, in 2015 alone the Obama administration gave UNRWA a whopping $380 million, $20 million of which went toward “Gaza Recovery & Reconstruction,” according to its own financial records.

“At this time, we will not be providing that, but that does not mean — I want to make it clear — that does not mean that it will not be provided in the future,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said this week, referencing the $45 million originally meant for the Palestinians.

President - Donald - Trump - Palestinians - Children

She appeared to be hinting that President Donald Trump might reconsider if and when the Palestinians stop behaving like spoiled children.

It would help too were the Palestinian Authority to stop treating convicted terrorists as martyrs. For instance, The Jerusalem Post notes that the PA “paid terrorists and their families over $347 million last year.”


Should the PA and UNRWA be permanently defunded?

Yes No
