US Congress rejects White House request of $175m to support ‘deal of the century’

US Congress has rejected an official request from the White House of $175 million, aimed to support President Donald Trump’s ‘deal of the century,’ Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported on Tuesday.

The requested money was part of the US 2020 budget, according to Haaretz, reported by a congressional source, disclosing that the rejection was not motivated by politics, but rather by budgetary considerations.

“One argument against it was, ‘No one thinks this peace plan is coming out any time soon, so why devote money to it?’” announced the source, whom Haaretz revealed was involved in the negotiations regarding the budget decision.
