President Donald Trump on Tuesday proposed drastically slashing U.S. foreign aid spending in Mexico and Central America, which are struggling with drug violence, graft and poverty that prompts many from the troubled region to migrate north.

Tuesday's proposal foresees 2018 Mexican aid of $87.66 million, down more than 45 percent from the 2016 outlay.

The budget proposes scrapping most U.S. money for the Mexican military, along with counterterrorism funds and some governance programs. Narcotics and law enforcement spending would fall from $100 million in 2016 to $60 million.

In Guatemala, U.S. aid would drop almost 40 percent from 2016, to $80.66 million, while in Honduras and El Salvador it would fall nearly a third. Some of this money benefits Belize.

Thank God! We have vets dying and poverty at home that need assistance. I'm tired of supporting other countries with borrowed money, going deeper in debt. A hand out is a handout and we currently can't afford it. Maybe again some day but not now.

Chinese will step in to fill the voids. You have to pay for world dominance and they are in Africa and SA and will in CA. Remember, they just tried to build their own parallel Panama canal in Nicaragua.
