Two weeks ago, President Trump complained that the U.S. is getting "no appreciation or respect" for the level of aid it donates. It has emerged that the U.S. is withholding over half of a $125 million aid payment to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees.
The U.S. is the largest donor to the UNWR, giving $368 million in 2016. Saudi Arabia is the second largest donor giving $148 million. Germany and the UK are in the third place, donating $73 million each.
The UN has said that the move could prove devastating for hundreds of thousands of vulnerable Palestinians.
