Just hours before his term of office expired, Barack Obama pulled another nasty trick - giving $221 million to the PLO
- in complete disobedience of Congress:
Solidifying his anti-Israel legacy, Obama gave the Palestinian Authority a massive monetary gift, in defiance of Congress.
Former US President Barack Obama, in his waning hours, quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA), which Congress had been blocking.
A State Department official and several congressional aides said the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning. The official said former Secretary of State John Kerry had informed some lawmakers of the move shortly before he left the State Department for the last time Thursday. The aides said a written notification dated January 20 was sent to Congress just hours before Donald Trump took the oath of office.
In addition to the $221 million for the Palestinians, the Obama administration also told Congress on Friday that it was going ahead with the release of another $6 million in foreign affairs spending, including $4 million for climate change programs and $1.25 million for United Nations organizations, the congressional aides said.
Giving taxpayers' money to the UN for any program is just as awful, but for now, what matters is that Obama again gave money to the PLO that's bound to be used to fund terrorist activities among other anti-Israel and anti-infidel steps. An absolute disgrace, and no telling if the Trump administration will ever be able to get the money back from them. Obama certainly kept up his reprehensible positions till the bitter end.
