    Trump Cuts More Than $200M in Aid to Palestinians

    About damned time we stopped supporting this terrorist organization. Let Iran keep pumping in money, we can use ours better elsewhere.

    From the department's mouth: "At the direction of President Trump, we have undertaken a review of US assistance to the Palestinian Authority and in the West Bank and Gaza to ensure these funds are spent in accordance with US national interests and provide value to the US taxpayer. ... This decision [to redirect more than $200 million] takes into account the challenges the international community faces in providing assistance in Gaza, where Hamas control endangers the lives of Gaza's citizens and degrades an already dire humanitarian and economic situation," the notice said, without providing additional details.
