Rundown: We Give BILLIONS to These Countries, but Can’t Build a Wall?

Published

on

President Donald J. Trump was elected to pursue an America First agenda that would benefit the citizens that fund the federal government via taxation. To a certain extent he has been successful in that mission, but has not been able to secure $5 billion to fund a wall at the southern U.S. border. With that in mind, let’s take a look at countries that suck up billions of dollars annually in total foreign aid money – raised by the U.S. taxpayer – while Congress tells those same Americans that it cannot find the money to make sure that America continues to be a sovereign nation, per How Much

  • Iraq – $5.3 billion
  • Afghanistan – $5.1 billion
  • Israel – $3.1 billion
  • Egypt – $1.2 billion
  • Jordan $1.2 billion
  • Ethiopia – $1.1 billion
  • Kenya – $1.1 billion
  • Syria – $916 million
  • Pakistan – $778 million
  • Uganda – $741 million
  • Ghana – $724 million
  • Nigeria – $718 million
  • South Sudan – $708 million
  • Tanzania – $629 million
  • South Africa – $597 million
  • Indonesia – $562 million
  • Ukraine – $525 million
  • Mozambique – $514 million
  • Liberia $474 million
  • Congo – $453 million
  • Zambia – $446 million
  • West Bank (aka HAMAS) – $417 million
  • Haiti – $377 million
  • Colombia – $325 million

Countries that receive more than $200 million from the United States annually include: The Philippines, Somalia, Mali, Rwanda, Zimbabwe and Guatemala. Countries that receive more than $100 million from the United States annually include: Cote d’Ivoire, Sierra Leone, India, Chad, Sudan, Honduras, Madagascar and Cameroon.

On Tuesday, the United States pledged $10.6 billion in foreign aid – $4.8 billion of which will be given to Mexico, and the rest to Central American countries – in a deal that would fund two border walls.

The point is obvious: Congress, which is the most generous nation on earth, throws money at these nations every year – and most of it is completely unaccounted for. Yet when it coms to helping our own people, Congress balks every time. Ordinary Americans see the problem here. The D.C. elites do not.
