Trump Refuses to Hand Over $65 Million to the United Nations – They are in Panic Mode


On Tuesday, the United States announced that it will not be giving $65 million of the initial aid it planned to give a U.N. agency that serves the Palestinians.

The decision comes just weeks weeks after President Donald Trump questioned the value of said funding.

The United States did reasonably send a whopping $60 million to keep the UN relief agency for Palestinians (UNRWA) in operation, but withheld a further $65 million and insisted that other nations need to chip in a little more.

“UNRWA has proven time and again to be an agency that misuses the humanitarian aid of the international community and instead supports anti-Israel propaganda, perpetuates the plight of Palestinian refugees and encourages hate,” said Danny Danon, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations.

Even if Washington provided the additional $65 million, the $125 million total would be well below the $355 million that a U.S. official said it gave UNRWA in the 2017.

Israel believes UNRWA shelters terrorists and is involved in matters complicating a possible resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The State Department announcement was highly praised by Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon.

“UNRWA has proven time and again to be an agency that misuses the humanitarian aid of the international community and instead supports anti-Israel propaganda, perpetuates the plight of Palestinian refugees and encourages hate,” Danon said in a statement released Tuesday.
