During the crucial moments at the end of the G20 Summit President Donald J. Trump stated that he would ensure a pledge of $639 Million from America to assist in the feeding of the citizens from Somalia, Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen.
Contrary to what critics may suggest, this is a brilliant move for America. By aiding in the nourishment of those nations America is essentially “off the hook” when it comes to future acceptance of refugees which are fleeing those war torn and agricultural disaster nations.
Trump not only gains points for charity granted but in the long run this will positively be collateral and capital gained to stand against accepting those refugees into the United States.
Trump's pledge came during the final working session of the G20 summit of world leaders in Hamburg. David Beasley, executive director of the UN World Food Program said that “The United States was providing a godsend to the United Nations' World Food Program.”
"We're facing the worst humanitarian crisis since World War Two," said Beasley, a Republican who was once the South Carolina governor which was nominated by Trump to head the U.N. agency fighting hunger worldwide in order to ascertain future stability from various regions.
Such a generous donation pledged by the Trump Administration in funding will possibly bring the total to over $1.8 billion in aid promised by the United States for the fiscal year 2017.
It should so greatly assist to avert the indefinite crisis in the four countries, where the United Nations has claimed more than 30 million people need urgent food assistance in order to survive.
"With this new assistance, the United States is providing additional emergency food and nutrition assistance, life-saving medical care, improved sanitation, emergency shelter and protection for those who have been affected by conflict," USAID said in a statement.
