Congress is set to pass a bipartisan COVID-19 relief package that includes $600 dollars in direct payments to Americans. but also foreign aid to other countries. Many on the right have expressed outrage and frustration with this “relief” package.
In this bill. Sudan is set to get $700 million, Israel $500 million, Burma $135 million, Cambodia $85.5 million, Nepal $130 million, and 1.4 billion for the “Asia Reassurance Initiative Act”. This is just some of what is tucked into this relief bill.

END ALL FOREIGN AID https://t.co/KpRGqjIWbc— Cassandra Fairbanks (@CassandraRules) December 21, 2020
There should not be any foreign aid given to any country, ever, but especially not in a COVID relief bill that’s supposed to be helping Americans— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) December 21, 2020
Why is there so much Foreign Aid in a bill that’s supposed to help American families and businesses?— Cari Kelemen (@KelemenCari) December 21, 2020
Get checks of at least $1,200 to the American people.— The Columbia Bugle 🇺🇸 (@ColumbiaBugle) December 21, 2020
Get Americans back to work.
Shut down all immigration, especially work visas.
Raise taxes on the big corporations that benefitted from this crisis.
End all foreign aid.
Imagine if the journalists who track down third grade teachers of Republicans would commit themselves to tracking down the SPECIFIC person responsible for putting foreign aid in a coronavirus relief bill and hound them out of office.— Jesse Kelly (@JesseKellyDC) December 21, 2020
That would be actual journalism.
NO MORE FOREIGN AID UNTIL THE PANDEMIC IS OVER!— Andrew Pollack (@AndrewPollackFL) December 21, 2020

THE EVERY COUNTRY-BUT-AMERICA RELIEF BILL. https://t.co/5ggPm44J7i— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) December 21, 2020
As you can see there is lots of rightful anger at Congress for putting in billions of dollars of foreign aid to other countries when the bill is supposed to help Americans who are struggling to survive. Congress says they don’t have enough money for $1200 dollar checks to each American but have enough to send money to other countries when Americans are suffering.
We can only hope the president sees the perceived garbage in this bill and vetoes it as we must put American workers and families first, not countries that are 1000s of miles away from us. While Americans suffer and the government refuses to send out a $1,200 dollar check to each American, they have time to sneak wasteful foreign aid to corrupt governments.
There should be no money to other countries when Americans are starving and out of work.
