    As promised, Trump slashes aid to Central America over migrants

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration on Monday cut hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, after Trump blasted the three countries because thousands of their citizens had sought asylum at the U.S. border with Mexico.

    ***

    Congressional aides said the administration told them it would reallocate $370 million in aid to Central America that lawmakers had approved for fiscal 2018, and suspend an additional $180 million Congress had approved for fiscal 2017.

    ***

    No funds will be provided until the administration is satisfied the countries are reducing the number of migrants reaching the U.S. border, State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus told reporters.

    “This is consistent with the president’s direction and with the recognition that it is critical that there be sufficient political will in these countries to address the problem at its source,” she said.

    The money never reaches the people. The corrupt State keeps it for itself and the taper, murder, oppression and torture continue. One might call such a place a “shit hole.” Liberals can save their cherry pick Jesus quotes because no where did Jesus ever say to give to corrupt States.

    Much like with Mexico, perhaps this will be an awakening call. I believe that a lot of leaders from other countries sit back and think "Trump would never really do that. It's all a dog and pony show."

    Now the question is, what are the Democrats going to try and do to stop him?

    Cutting aid is just gonna make it worse. More people will flee those countries and head this way.

    That old Democrat talking point doesn't work. It's what I call Democrat Blackmail. We gave them aid, threatened to take it away if they didn't do something, and now we have a worse problem on our hands.

    As pointed out, that money seldom makes it to the people. It doesn't provide food, it doesn't go to fight drug lords or human traffickers. It goes to the leaders and they live the life of luxury.

    If it's not broke, don't fix it. If it's broke and what you've done didn't fix it, it's time to try a new way of fixing things.
