White House Drops Attempt To Cancel Foreign Aid

2019-08-23 01:53:541 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

The White House has dropped its move forward with a plan to eliminate up to $4 billion in foreign aid funding. This was controversial, as the move forward was without congressional approval, reports CNN. The move represents another change of course from the White House on a major policy front. With his pursuit scrapped, Trump also conceded one of the last remaining battles of the year. It was to demonstrate his administration has tried to address the ballooning deficit. The planned rescission package faced opposition from bipartisan lawmakers and foreign policy advocates.
