US leaves Colombia in the dark over aid for peace

Tuesday, March 21, 2017


With not one mention of Colombia in the budget proposal of President Donald Trump, the US government continues to leave its South American ally in the dark about whether it can count on any of the promised American support for an ongoing peace process.

While the $450 million promised by Obama was nowhere to be found in the budget, the Trump administration did announce it wanted to cut support for UN-led peacekeeping missions while ramping up its military spending with a staggering $54 billion.
