VP says US will bypass UN in aiding persecuted communities

1 min read

Vice President Mike Pence announced Wednesday night that the Trump administration will no longer fund “ineffective” programs run by the United Nations to help persecuted communities and will instead send money to such groups directly through the US Agency for International Development.
“President (Donald) Trump has ordered the State Department to stop funding ineffective relief efforts at the United Nations, … and from this day forward, America will provide support directly to persecuted communities through USAID,” Pence declared to extended applause while speaking in Washington to the group In Defense of Christians, which advocates for greater protection of Christians in the Middle East.
“While faith-based groups with proven track records and deep roots in the region are more than willing to assist, the United Nations continues to deny their funding requests,” Pence said.
The vice president, who is deeply religious, urged his “fellow Christians” to support faith-based groups and private organizations.
