Once again, President Joe Biden and the Democrats are not putting Americans first, and have chosen to throw money away to unnecessary causes that do not benefit the United States.
On Tuesday, Biden pledged $102 million to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for COVID-19 relief, climate action, education and economic support.
“You can expect to see me personally showing up and reaching out to you,” Biden said during a meeting with ASEAN Secretary General Dato Lim Jock Hoi and leaders from nine of 10 member states. “You can expect to see the United States deepening our long-standing cooperation pursuing new avenues of ministerial dialogue, investing in our countries and driving inclusive prosperity in the region.”
Epoch Times reports:
The U.S. has invested $3.5 billion to support public health in ASEAN over the past 20 years, according to the White House.
Burmese military leader Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, who seized power through a military coup on Feb. 1, has been excluded from the three-day virtual summit. The AP reports Brunei, which is this year’s ASEAN chair, invited Burmese diplomat, U Chan Aye, as a “non-political” representative, but he didn’t attend the meeting.
ASEAN’s “Five Point Consensus” calls for immediate cessation of violence in Burma, constructive dialogue among all parties concerned, mediation facilitated by ASEAN, humanitarian assistance and an association special envoy visit to Burma.
National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters Oct. 26 he has recently engaged with senior officials in Myanmar’s (Burma) National Unity Government (NUG), an administration set up by opponents of the military coup. Sullivan says discussions were around humanitarian aid to the Burmese people and broader diplomacy in the region.
“We will continue to stay focused on our steadfast support for the people of Burma, for a democratic path in Burma and for the protection of the safety, security and human rights of the citizens of that country,” said Sullivan.
WHY ARE WE FUNDING OTHER COUNTRIES FOR ANYTHING WHEN THE US IS IN CRISIS???
