Every year, the U.S. sends $35,000,000,000 in foreign aid to people in other countries. We also send $8,000,000,000 to the U.N.
We are $20 trillion in debt, and the debt is getting worse because, for decades, the government put other countries before American interests.
To President Trump:
Every year, American taxpayers send $35 billion to foreign countries. We continue to pay their bills while we go deeper into debt: The United States government now owes over $20 trillion. This country and its leaders have continually put the needs of others above our interests at home. It's time to put America first.
We cannot afford to send huge sums to other countries while plenty of Americans are struggling here at home. By signing this letter, I ask you and Secretary Tillerson to cancel all foreign aid until the national debt is paid down.
