US Presidential Hopeful Buttigieg Won’t Pay For ‘Israeli’ Annexation of West Bank
By Staff, Agencies
The US won’t “help foot the bill” if the ‘Israeli’ entity annexes the settlements it has built in the West Bank, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg declared in a policy speech, deviating from the usual US deference to the Zionist regime.
“If [‘Israeli’] Prime Minister Netanyahu makes good on his threat to annex West Bank settlements, he should know that a President Buttigieg would take steps to ensure that American taxpayers won’t help foot the bill,” former South Bend, Indiana mayor Buttigieg declared in the first foreign policy speech of his campaign at Indiana University in Bloomington on Tuesday.
Buttigieg insisted that the option to criticize the ‘Israeli’ regime should remain available to Americans. The occupation regime currently receives $3.8 billion per year from the US in military aid, or about $10.4 million per day – a statistic Buttigieg did not mention in his speech.
