Trump’s Claim That Israel Gets $4.5 Billion From the U.S.

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump made headlines in Washington and in Israel on Thursday by saying that Israel will be able to handle the security challenges created by his decision to withdraw all American forces from Syria, because “we give Israel $4.5 billion a year” in security assistance.

The unusual comment caused many of Trump’s critics, on both sides of the Atlantic, to accuse him of turning his back on Israel, even though Trump made clear that his administration “will always be there for Israel.” Trump cited moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem as proof of his support for the country, pushing back against criticism from leading pro-Israel voices in the U.S. over the past week.

One question that a number of Haaretz readers raised following Trump’s remarks had to do with the numbers he mentioned. Where did the number $4.5 billion come from? Was it true? And was Trump right when he added, towards the end of his comment, “we give frankly a lot more than that (to Israel) if you look at the books?”

The United States did not provide Israel with $4.5 billion in last year’s budget. However, that doesn’t mean Trump is wrong, or that he invented the number out of the blue. There is some sense behind his choice, but it requires combining a number of different budgets related to American support of Israel.

In 2016, the Israeli government and the Obama administration signed a joint memorandum of understanding which outlined the future of American security aid to Israel. Under the agreement, the U.S. will provide Israel with $3.8 billion every year, starting from 2019, for a period of one decade.

The memorandum was overwhelmingly approved by Congress earlier this year, and it will go into effect starting from next year, despite a last-minute effort by Republican Senator Rand Paul to block its implementation.

“we give frankly a lot more than that (to Israel) if you look at the books?”

Trump: 'We are going to take great care of Israel. Israel is going to be good'


so Trump is admitting this is Israel's war

what did Syria do to Israel?
“I’m the one that moved the embassy to Jerusalem. I was the one who was willing to do that,” Trump said. “So that’s the way it is. We are going to take great care of Israel. Israel is going to be good. We give Israel $4.5 billion a year. And we give frankly a lot more than that if you look at the books. They’ve been doing a good job.”

These are interesting times Mr Yoshida. Trump is proving to be a breaker of political taboos.
And why do we give money to the jews? They can't make their own money or what
Over 90% of the Jewish vote goes to Democrats. Trump loses effectively nothing by losing his Jewish vote.
i thought 25% went to the republican vote

That is basically what happens. Kickbacks.

The government can't give money directly (in an honest manner at least) to themselves, but if they give it to another government, then THEY (in this case Israel) can give it to the representatives.

Only problem is then the reps are convinced that they OWE Israel a favor, in return. LOL

It's called paying the jizya' Senor. It's a tax Christian men, known in the Middle East as dhimma pay in exchange for their lives.
