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).
