TRUMP MOVE COULD 'SAVE CHRISTIANITY IN CRADLE OF CHRISTENDOM'

President fires U.N., sends aid directly to persecuted believers in Iraq

Human-rights advocates are vigorously applauding the Trump administration’s decision to stop sending aid to Iraqi Christians and Yazidis decimated by ISIS through the United Nations and to provide the help directly from now on.


On Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence announced the shift in policy.


“Christians in the Middle East should not have to rely on multinational institutions when America can help them directly. Tonight, it is my privilege to announce that President Trump has ordered the State Department to stop funding ineffective relief efforts at the United Nations.




“From this day forward, America will provide support directly to persecuted communities through USAID,” said Pence, referring to the U.S. Agency for International Development.
