U.S. Cuts Off Federal Aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras

Well, President Trump has backed into doing something right, short-term, for all the wrong reasons.

The United States will be blocking all federal aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

Of course, the U.S. shouldn't be providing aid to any country for any reason. The negative with Trump's move is that he is doing it to muscle these countries into stopping their citizens from leaving their countries.

Presumably, if these countries act to prevent their citizens from leaving destitute conditions for the U.S., Trump will open the aid floodgates once again.

This is an economically ignorant position for the president to take---and evil.
