Closing Thought–19Jun19

Recently our beloved supreme leader issued his dictum that all aid would be cut off to the Central American countries of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras because they are doing little to curb the amount of immigrants headed to the US border……

His, Trump’s, slobbering supporters were all down with him on this unilateral use of his powers……but what the MSM has not done is tell the the rest of the story to his supporters…..

The Trump administration said Monday it is easing previously announced cuts in hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the Central American nations of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala but will not allow new funding until those countries do more to reduce migrant flows to the United States.

The State Department said that after a review of more than $615 million in assistance that President Donald Trump ordered in March to be cut entirely, it would go ahead with $432 million in projects and grants that had been previously approved. The remaining amount will be held in escrow pending consultations with Congress, it said.

That $432 million, which comes from the 2017 budget, is being spent on health, education and poverty alleviation programs as well as anti-crime efforts that many believe help reduce migrant outflows from the impoverished Northern Triangle region. About $370 million in money from the 2018 budget will not be spent and instead will be moved to other projects, the State Department said.

“Previously awarded grants and contracts will continue with current funding,” department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said. She added that assistance “to help the Northern Triangle governments take actions that will protect the U.S. border and counter transnational organized crime will also continue.”

Just to let his supporters know that his tough talk is just that…TALK!

And as they say…Talk is cheap!

  1. You are another traitor just like the dems in Congress. You ARE anti-American and pro-Invaders. You are only a single reason “OUR”, yours and mine, is currently hauling-ass towards total destruction of a “FREE-PEOPLE”. You are the problem with this crap you are tossing out. WHY are you against us???

    1. Sorry Bob but because I disagree with you does not make me against you….maybe your twisted thinking but not you as an American. n PLease tell me what my opposition to Trump’s demented immigration policies is against you? Thanx chuq

  2. Bob is upset! Oh dear…Lock and load, Bob. Head for that bunker…
    They will continue the aid, in any fashion. The reason is because they fear the spread of Socialism in the region. Any amount of money is available to stop that.
    Best wishes, Pete.
