Trump cuts heavily into foreign aid

World May 23, 2017 20:00

washington - The Trump government budget proposal puts the knife back in US spending abroad. Much less money is available for health programs in the world, food aid, international peacekeeping, educational and cultural exchanges and climate change management. This is evident from documents on the budget plan released on Tuesday.

The US contribution to improving global health, including efforts to combat HIV / AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, has decreased by almost a quarter to about 5.8 billion euros in 2018.

In addition, Trump's plans provide a 44% discount on funds for international organizations. It is not specified which ones are. NATO remains at the bottom of the cut.
