Trump FREEZES Obama’s $221,000,000 Parting Gift To The “Palestinians”

Former President Barack Obama spent his last hours in office defying Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority.

After previously announcing their review of the issue, the US State Department has decided to freeze the money promised by former US President Barack Obama to the Palestinian Authority, Israeli National News reports.

On Friday, just before leaving office, Obama and then-Secretary of state John Kerry released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority.

Senior State Department officials have announced their intention to postpone the decision until a new Secretary of State is appointed. If the transfer fits with Trump’s policies, the money will be given to the PA.

Texas Congresswoman Kay Granger said on Tuesday night, “I worked to make sure that no American taxpayer dollars would fund the Palestinian Authority unless very strict conditions were met.

“While none of these funds will go to the Palestinian Authority because of those conditions, they will go to programs in the Palestinian territories that were still under review by Congress. The Obama Administration’s decision to release these funds was inappropriate.”
