As usual, there is more to the story than is reported by the usual suspects at the major news outlets like ABC/NBC/CBS etc. Confirmation that President Trump knows what he is doing, despite what said news outlets are telling us.
It would be really nice if those who report the “news” really did the work that real journalists do, and get to the bottom of the story. I’m dreaming though.
A senior Guatemalan official said his nation was aware President Donald Trump was going to cut funding to his nation, saying he understands the decision as the majority of funds designated to aid his nation’s poorest through development projects and other charities rarely reaches those who need it most…
“To be honest with you, I don’t think most of that money is actually being properly used in our country, mainly in Guatemala,” Duarte told me. “A lot of that money goes to NGOs who spend it on mostly doing analysis and white papers sent studies. The money’s not really going towards the people. There’s no significant projects that really help us along those lines.”…
Duarte noted that last week he had
“a conversation with a couple of project managers from USAID that have worked here in Guatemala, they have worked in Haiti, they have worked in Africa, they have worked in Afghanistan and the issue here is that the projects are almost like pet projects for some political ideal.
“It’s not something thats going to significantly increase the Guatemalan capacity to actually start building up on that and create jobs, and create some sort of development. So, at some point, there needs to be a good coordination in between the executive of the United States and the executive of Guatemala to really make a change in how these projects are selected and how they’re funded to make sure that the money is actually used to assist us in developing our undeveloped regions. And, you know, redundancy applied here,” Duarte added.
Duarte said his nation will continue to assist the United States.
