I thought the Nasturtium Narcissist said in his speech in Saudi Arabia that the US isn’t going to tell other nations how to live anymore. And human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia don’t seem to be problematic for #45.

Yeah, I would really like to know what Jared the Slumlord has done so far to bring peace to the Muddled East. Not to mention what he thinks that “peace” is going to look like.

The Trump administration on Tuesday cut nearly $100 million in military and economic aid to Egypt and delayed almost $200 million more in military financing, citing Egypt’s poor human rights record and its crackdown on civic and other non-governmental groups.

The move came as a surprise to many, given the close ties forged since Trump took office. The U.S. president has repeatedly hailed el-Sissi as a key ally in the fight against terrorism.

This is a perfect example of “watch what the administration does, not what Trump says.” Trump is always going to a$$ki$$ “strongmen” dictators because that’s who he wants to be and admires.

But then, he’s going to back stab anyone or country when it’s useful or benefits him, because that is always what he’s done in business. And he’s a spineless bastard who doesn’t know how to use his words and only speaks out of his a$$.

Cut.

As in, we’re giving them a lot more than that? But we can’t afford to fix the water in Flint, Michigan?

Seriously.

Since it’s gotten so small and inconsequential, maybe it doesn’t need to be a cabinet position anymore ; - )

“the Trump administration cut or delayed hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Cairo over human rights concerns.”

Seriously? Trump has made it clear in many ways that he does not care a bit about human rights, including here in the US. There must be some other actual reason for any cut or delay.
