Recently the United States took a hit to its international prestige when Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel banned our two congresswomen from entering Israel. President Trump, at first, said it was a stunt on their part to get publicity, but it turned out he was the one who told Netanyahu to stop them.
I’m concerned because it seems that President Trump is just testing the waters to see how far his autocracy can reach.
The ironic part of this whole drama is that President Obama granted Israel a 10-year, $30 billion foreign aid package. If I were Speaker Pelosi, I would immediately shut off all funds to this grant.
