This is an infuriating story from our friends at OpenTheBooks.com.
President Trump froze U.S. aid to Gaza in 2018, noting the U.S. had given hundreds of millions to Palestinian entities over the years even though the Palestinian Authority had a policy of paying pensions to the families of dead terrorists (“Pay to Slay”).
In 2021, President Biden restarted U.S. aid just over two months after he took office, even though Secretary of State Antony Blinken admitted there was “no guarantee” that the money would stay out of the hands of Hamas.
OpentheBooks.com has found that over $1 billion has been sent by Biden to the Palestinians. This doesn’t even include the $6 billion in Iranian funds that Biden wanted to unfreeze.
Then add to that the $3.5 billion fund Biden set up “for the benefit of the Afghan people,” in the wake of the botched U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. How much of that will benefit the Taliban regime’s campaign of terror?
Wait there’s more. Open the Books has also identified more than $1.3 billion sent by federal agencies to Russian and Chinese entities in the last five years, including $2 million to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
We have a solution: stop ALL foreign aid programs.
