Kirsters Baish| It seems that President Donald Trump is not backing down despite harsh criticism from the progressive left. He has just upped the ante on his own policy of denying foreign aid to countries that are bad actors, which means either their citizens or their relationship with the United States. The White House released today that President Trump has just cut millions in aid to Cambodia.
This epic move by President Trump is simply brilliant for multiple reasons. The first reason is that President Trump is trying to find anywhere to cut spending. He is even willing to take money from nations who don’t deserve it… imagine that.
Then, there’s President Trump’s idea that our country is able to and will indeed punish any country that doesn’t have the best interest of America at heart.
The progressive left is going to continue to complain the President Trump is evil and that he knows that it’s responsible when it comes to the American people and those who are living in that corrupt kind of regime.
Then, lastly we have the fact that President Trump’s decision means that he is okay with cracking down on things that the establishment does not agree with.
This is extremely important since it’s been an entire generation and a half since the GOP was willing to go against the media narrative. This is why Trump is in the White House today.
Ed Note stated, “The majority of Americans were sick of leaders who cow-tow to the establishment. And that’s exactly why Trump’s approval numbers continue to climb. More and more Americans are realizing he actually says what he means and means what he says.”
Below is the statement from the Press Secretary on Reduction in Assistance to the Government of Cambodia:
Based on this review, the United States Government will suspend or curtail several Treasury, USAID, and American military assistance programs intended to support the General Department of Taxation, the capacity of local government authorities, and the Cambodian military, each of which has been linked to these setbacks.
The left definitely aren’t happy about Trump’s decision, but it was clearly the right decision.
