Pakistan was REALLY upset when President Trump announced our support of Israel! Meanwhile, they have been accepting billions of dollars from us and as Nikki Haley stated,
“Pakistan has played a double game for years. They work with us at times and they also harbor the terrorists that attack our troops in Afghanistan. That game is not acceptable.” And that was “on Tuesday, [while Nikki was] explaining that Washington was withholding $255 million in aid to Islamabad”!
Since then, Fox reported, “on Thursday, the U.S. announced plans to end up to $2 billion in security assistance to Pakistan.” Now there is a major dose of peace through strength!
Upon the news of over a 2 billion dollar surplus, Rand Paul had a GREAT idea! He even wrote a bill about what to do with it instead of giving it to Pakistan who uses it to kill our own soldiers and burn our flag!
The Trump administration is also “suspending at least 900 million of military and security aid to Pakistan,” per Fox News.
Rand Paul said:
- “I’m introducing a bill to end aid to Pakistan in the coming days. My bill will take the money that would have gone to Pakistan and put it in an infrastructure fund to build roads and bridges here at home.”

And in Paul Rand’s video, he stresses:
“We need to build our Nation, not other countries. It’s time for an America First policy and an end to foreign aide.”
Our billionaire, builder America First President retweeted the video and regarding the Infrastructure bill said three powerful words :
“Good idea Rand!”
Good idea Rand! https://t.co/55sqUDiC0s

The National Debt and what ending aide to unfriendly countries might mean to our bottom debt.
As per the Treasury Department – the total debt of America the day Obama took office was at Jan 19, 2008 9.1 Trillion Dollars. In his first four years, Obama increased America’s debt by almost twice. And on Jan 19, 2012 the total debt sat at 15.2 Trillion Dollars. And by the end his eight years governing the greatest economic engine the world has ever seen, the Obama-era administration MORE THAN DOUBLED the debt and on Jan 19, 2017 the total debt clocked in at 19.9 Trillion dollars!
This is the federal budget that President Trump has inherited. To check a daily debt calculator, click HERE. It will be interesting to see how low the debt will be by the end of President Trump’s first four years. You have to spend it to make it so look for a slight increase prior to the debt going down. Not giving Pakistan their aide is a step in the right direction to decreasing the National debt.
Are you FOR not giving Pakistan the entire two billion and instead, using it to build our own infrastructure?
