With much focus on President Trump’s budget proposal and the flipping out thereof, Sally Kohn weighed in on foreign aid:
Foreign aid is not only a duty rich nations have toward poor ones but a key tactic for undermining the animosity that feeds terrorism.

Is that so?
Both wrong. https://t.co/70R4GmV0qR

@sallykohn Individuals have a charitable duty. Nations do not. Reach in your own pocket if inclined to be charitable..

@sallykohn So what constitutional reference do you have for "duty"?

@sallykohn thats tactic weakness, your terminology are conflicting with logic at the same sentence

Kohn seems to be forgetting about all the times foreign aid gets funneled to terrorists or when it’s directly given to their enablers in the form of pallets of cash.
Foreign aid tends to end up funding terrorism. BTW, is there actually anything that doesn't feed terrorists' animosity towards the west? https://t.co/qwrM3IlXzA

@sallykohn no amount of good deeds in the world will stop radical Islamic terrorists from wanting to destroy Israel and the US

@sallykohn that sounds a lot like how the mob used to operate. Pay up for your own protection. No thanks

Yeah the 2 billion per year we gave to Mubarak was clearly effective at quelling "animosity" https://t.co/dy8QKpysT0

@sallykohn Weren't we giving aid on 9/11? Don't u get it? NOTHING we do will reduce animosity. We are dealing with deranged animals
