Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to threaten to cut off US aid money to the Palestinian Authority, saying they were no longer willing to negotiate.

Trump, in a pair of tweets, said the US paid “the Palestinians HUNDRED [sic] OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue … peace treaty with Israel.”

The world according to Trump: 2017 was a busy year of hurling insults globally

He added: “We have taken Jerusalem, the toughest part of the negotiation, off the table, but Israel, for that, would have had to pay more. But with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?”

Trump seems to have learned diplomacy from the mafia. Making people an offer they can't refuse usually works, but it doesn't help you make friends.

How about making aid dependent on the willingness to negotiate? Has anyone heard of that before?

Trump is bringing isolationism back to the U.S., and I think his supporters want that. Unfortunately, just like most Trumpers, Trump seems to lack any tact or compassion.

He seems to have a one-track mind, and that track is "offer you can't refuse."


Now this is Awesome. Way to go Trump. He needs to stop giving to every country we send money to and start putting that money into our infrastructure. Time to clean house. Invest that money back into our own country. When we get our own house clean, then we can help others keep theirs clean.


HAHAHA... You actually thought that money would come back to the US. There is a 38 billion dollar military aid deal to Israel.

Our country still gets craped on.

Whats even worse is that Irael is competing with the US in selling arms. It is the arms we gave them.


Did you miss the part were I said he should cut off funding to all countries?

Look the USA is the worlds 800lb gorilla and it no doubt has toys in the cupboard we dont even know of nor can conceive of yet but a victory after several cities get nuked is a pyrrhic one your dealing with despots and religious fanatics with nuclear weapons so you dont really know what they'll do if pushed.


That is true. I am just glad that we have a President who will actually try to protect America.

In a mere 24 hours hes ticked off Pakistan,Iran and the Palestinians your going to have a terrorist attack and it could well be nuclear



I don't think they really want to go to war with this president. The JV team that Obama couldn't handle have been dealt with rather effectively since Trump took over as coach.


You can thank Putin and the Russians for it . As theyre the ones who took care of that problem .


Lol. I wonder why they couldn't do that when Obama was President? Good thing Trump won, or Hilary was going to do things the same way. President Trump did the thing that needed to be done to take out Isis, but you keep your head up, you will get it right one day.

That sounds like a good idea. Why should we give money to a group of people who fund a terrorist group that keeps conflict going between people in that area. Why do we give money to all these countries in the first place, the money usually does not go to help feed their people anyway, the leaders use it to buy weapons and hire more police to suppress their people it seems.

The ONLY money that the United States should send to other countries is to help starving people, and after natural disasters. And, that money should be spent/overseen by someone from the U.S. government.

That's Trump's mouth talking. The brain is Jared Kushner who is an orthodox Jew and a long time friend of Netanyahu who is very racist to Muslims.


can't be racist to muslims. Muslims ain't a race. Can be bigoted. Maybe you see muslims as a race because you're racist?

Trump is bored.

Sitting at his desktop computer, pushing the "twitter" buttons no longer gives him the warm endorphin feedback he's hooked on.

So, he's stepping it up a notch.

He's going to piss off and annoy as many people, nations, and groups, as possible just to get some higher level feedback going to stimulate his aging brain cells.

That's what happens when you vote for an aging billionaire with too much time on his hands, to be your president.

The only thing he could possibly want out of the oval office, is a higher level entertainment than he could buy with his money.
