The Trump Administration has frozen Obama’s parting gift to the the Palestinians.

Former US President Barack Hussein Obama, in his waning hours, quietly released $221-M to the Palestinian Authority (PA), which Congress had been blocking.

The Trump Administration announced it has freezing the move.

The US State Department is reviewing the 11th hour decision by former Secretary of State John Kerry to send $221-M dollars to the Palestinians.

Mr. Kerry formally notified Congress that State would release the money Friday morning, just hours before President Donald Trump took the oath of office….

When asked about the transfer by a reporter during Tuesday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that “President Trump is very concerned about how taxpayer money is spent, whether it’s sent overseas and what we get for it in terms of the relationship or our support for a democracy or aid to another country for their defenses. But he’s going to be examining all aspects of the budget… He’s going to make sure that every deal, every dollar that is spent by the government is done in a way that respects the American taxpayer.”
