President Trump announced Wednesday that the U.S. will begin to deduct foreign aid from countries whose residents illegally enter the United States.
"Many of these countries we give tremendous amounts of aid to. Tens of millions of dollars. And we're working on a plan to deduct a lot of the aid," Trump said at an event in New York denouncing the Salvadoran gang MS-13.
"We're going to work out something where every time someone comes in from a certain country, we're going to deduct a rather large amount of money from what we give them in aid, if we give them aid at all," Trump said. "We may just not give them aid at all."

Put them on an island off of el salvador. Lease the island for a buck a year. Let the country feen them. No gang activity as there’s no other gang to fight.
I don’t believe in coincidence. President Trump seems to be back in form with Giuliani at this side.
Best President evuh!!! MAGA! 2020!
excellent! really i have never understood this anyhow- you want our $$, you follow our rules.
Way Cool! We have census data that will give us a general headcount by country of who’s hear illegally. Use that information and tell Mexico for starters that we will be deducting $100,000 per illegal Mexican here from our annual foreign aid stipend. Unfortunately, that may well end up being zero, or a negative number.
And on top of cutting off foreign aid, we need to start taxing remittances to Mexico. With both actions, we could threaten the collapse of Mexico’s financial institutions and it’s government, and that would be wonderful.
Wow, I suggested this 22 years ago on a newspaper forum; all I had to do was wait for the right President...
I don’t get excited about these things UNTIL it happens, then you will here me WWAAAAAAHHHOOOOOOO. One thing I can count on though is so far, Trump has kept his word on everything he has promised. Love our president, the first one in recent history that actually is looking out for we the people.
Australia sent boats full of illegal migrants to an offshore island. Their problem became much smaller.
Top 25 Recipient Countries of U.S. Foreign Aid FY 2013 Reported in $US millions, Obligations
Mexico 419.94 million
That’ll twist some knickers south of the border. You have ‘em by the cojones, Mr. President, so their hearts and minds will follow.
MAGA and MWBA!!
This should have been our policy for DECADES!
LOL, how can you not just Love this guy:-)
>>If Mexico is smart, theyll be drawing up plans for a wall any moment now.<<
Wait until we start taxing international wire money transfers.
Mexico and most of Latin America will crap their drawers!
Why not tally up the number of illegal alien children being educated in the US, and the number of illegals receiving food stamps, ADC, etc.
Do this by country, and then deduct the amount from foreign aid. If the country doesn’t receive foreign aid, or the bill is more than the foreign aid received, then bill them. We’re having to house, cloth, feed, and educate their citizens, so they should pay for that expense.
“My anger towards Congress has pegged the meter on the right though.”
I’m right there with you DO! In fact in my weaker moments, I wonder just how good it would be if a meteor were to hit our Capitol Building while both Houses were in session. But we, collectively, have put them there, and shame on us!
THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP!! STOP illegal aliens! Dont worry about the ignorant Twitter ruling by the so-called Judge. All President Trump has to do is IGNORE the so-called Judge and block whomever he WANTS. The so-called Judge has violated the separation-of-powers doctrine, and the impotent Judge can in no way enforce his so-called ruling anyway. PERIOD!
Great idea but some judge will block it.
Makes sense. We need the money to take care of their people.
