Never could understand why we sent money to any other country when we have homeless and hungry people right here in the United States born here. There are many countries we give aid to that should be cut and spent instead here in our own country!
But, adults are actually in charge of the country now. We finally have a President that is doing a job other Presidents should have been doing years ago!! He stops sending money to a state that has been less than an ally of the USA!
According to The Hill, President Donald Trump threatened countries that fail to stem the rise of drugs with a loss of aid from the United States at a Customs and Border Protection roundtable in Virginia last week.
The remarks highlighted the administration’s battle on border security in ways unrelated to illegal immigration.
“I want to stop the aid. If they can’t stop drugs from coming in, ’cause they can stop them a lot easier than us. They say, ‘oh we can’t control it.’ Oh great, we’re supposed to control it,” the President said. “So we give them billions and billions of dollars, and they don’t do what they’re supposed to be doing, and they know that. But we’re going to take a very harsh action,” Trump told gathered officials, according to CNN.
However, Trump seemed to name the countries later, arguing that El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico could do a better job of intercepting drugs.
“They’re coming in — they’re pouring in from other — El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, all over,” Trump said.
“They’re just pouring into our country. And we’ve stopped it, but the laws make it very tough.”
The remarks came in the same week as the president’s State of the Union address, in which he promised to be “much tougher on drug dealers and pushers.”
“My administration is committed to fighting the drug epidemic and helping get treatment for those in need, for those who have been so terribly hurt,” Trump said.
It’s about time. We take in refugees, keep illegals, send money to their home countries…and yet nothing changes. The world doesn’t want us to “build democracies” but no one takes responsibility or pushes for changes in these countries. It’s time we stop pouring money into these places that lack any desire to change their ways.
It is time to stop sending money to those that hate us and keep the money in our own country. It is time to use the money to help the children and poor people in the good old United States. Trump knows that money is a powerful thing. It is indeed a weapon and he knows how to use it! President Trump deserves our thanks for this brilliant move.
