Here’s How Much The US Would Save If Trump Cut Aid To Every Country Who Opposed President Trump On Jerusalem Move

In a major diplomatic surprise to Israel and U.S. President Donald Trump, the UN General Assembly passed a resolution rejecting the American recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, with 128 member states voting in favor of the resolution and a mere nine voting against it.

Among the countries that voted in favor of the resolution are many traditional U.S. allies, including the United Kingdom, France, and Canada. Israel, which celebrated Trump’s decision earlier this month, joined the U.S. in voting against the measure.

President Trump said that he will withhold billions of dollars in aid to countries who oppose his Jerusalem decision!

And a few days ago Nikki Haley confirmed that decision!

Cutting the “bloated” UN budget by $285 million next year is a “big step in right direction,” according to US envoy Nikki Haley. The news comes after reports from the UN that some critical aid programs were underfunded this year.

The US Mission to the United Nations announced on Sunday that it had secured a major curb in the global organization’s budget for 2018 and 2019. Commenting on the announcement, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the cut would end benefits the international community has gained from “American generosity.

From The Daily Caller:

So what if Trump actually gutted funding for those 128 countries? Well, The Daily Caller did the math.

According to USAid.gov, which catalogs all country-by-country financial obligations the U.S. holds with the rest of the world, Trump’s threat would save the United States more than $24 billion — in just one year.

The numbers below are based on what the U.S. was obligated to pay in 2016 to each of the countries that voted against us in the UN vote last week. Obligations are defined as the amount the United States is legally bound to pony up either in that year or the future.

“A binding agreement that will result in outlays, immediately or in the future. Budget resources must be available before obligations can be legally incurred.”
The obligations may differ from the actual cash disbursements given in any given year, but they best reflect our financial obligations to the country in question.
