Thank goodness: Trump freezes Obama's last minute gift of taxpayers' money to PLO

The Trump administration was able to stop Obama's last-minute transfer of $221 million to the PLO before it could reach them:
The Trump administration has frozen Obama’s quiet, last minute cash gift to the Palestinian Authority.

Former US President Barack Obama, in his waning hours, quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA), which Congress had been blocking.

The Trump administration announced it is freezing the move. [...]

When asked about the transfer by a reporter during Tuesday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that “[Trump] is very concerned about how taxpayer money is spent, whether it’s sent overseas and what we get for it in terms of the relationship or our support for a democracy or aid to another country for their defenses. But he’s going to be examining all aspects of the budget… He’s going to make sure that every deal, every dollar that is spent by the government is done in a way that respects the American taxpayer.”
Something European politicians should start learning from: respect their own taxpayers as well. Trump did the right thing - a last-minute freezing of a last-minute waste of taxpayer money. The PLO should not be viewed as valid, and it's time to stop giving them money. It should be the same here in Israel.
