    Trump has good reasons to withhold aid until Lebanon meets his conditions. It's because Hezbollah wants missiles to fire into Israel.


    US Reportedly Withholding Military Aid From Lebanon, Where Hezbollah is Deeply Entrenched


    (CNSNews.com) – The Trump administration is reportedly withholding $105 million in military aid from Lebanon, a move that comes after Israel called on Western countries to make assistance conditional on the Lebanese government clamping down on Hezbollah’s attempts to acquire precision guided missiles.

    Reuters cited two unnamed U.S. officials as saying the State Department had informed Congress Thursday of the decision to halt the assistance, but providing no reason for the decision.

    The State Department referred queries to the White House Office of Management and Budget. Queries overnight to OMB brought no response by press time.

    I wonder why he's trying to blackmail Lebanon.

    What does Lebanon have that trump wants for his reelection?

    How does withholding that aid benefit putin? All roads with trump lead to putin so I wonder how he will benefit.

    I read that the Dems were holding up the military budget for America, and, ironically, some funding as part of that was to go to Ukraine.

    Not if Trump says otherwise. He sets our foreign policy.

    Got it He is holding up the military aid because Israel told him to, despite what our own state department and pentagon said. Trump has a history of going by what other countries say over what our own people tell him. That's not leadership. That's sucking up to other countries leaders.
