Good. Why in the fuck are we spending all this money on foreign aid?
President Donald Trump suggested he would veto the massive $900 billion COVID-19 relief bill passed by Congress Tuesday night if significant changes weren’t made, including larger direct payments to Americans and the removal of “wasteful and unnecessary” foreign aid items.
Trump posted a video in which he railed against the aid package, focusing heavily on the massive foreign aid contents while demanding direct payments be increased from the current $600 to a least $2,000 for individuals or $4,000 for a couple.
“Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists and special interests while sending the bare minimum to the American people who need it,” Trump said in the video recorded at the White House. “It wasn’t their fault. It was China’s fault. Not their fault.”
