IRIN Examines Trump’s Appearance At U.N. General Assembly, U.S. Position On Foreign Aid

IRIN: As Trump runs low on targets, aid sector asks: are we next?
“…Several leading participants [last] week in New York spoke of their disappointment that diplomacy and multilateralism are on the retreat, making it harder to disentangle some of the world’s most intractable problems and conflicts — from Syria and Yemen to refugee resettlement and climate change. And with the Trump administration running low on multilateral punching bags, relief officials and U.N. observers are now worried that the political weaponization of aid might become the next frontier, with the U.S. reducing vital funding for assistance programs overseas that don’t fit its agenda…” (Oakford, 9/28).
