The official told CNN that the Global Welfare Initiative (W-GDP), the protection of Christian minorities around the world, and global health programs are not subject to possible cuts.
The official said so It should come as no surprise that the President's political priorities are not part of a possible proposal to Congress to cancel appropriations already appropriated, called repossession.
This official confirmed that the administration wanted to promote a possible resignation package, but did not specify a date. The financial year ends on 30 September.
A USAID official said last week that the frozen funding is between $ 2 billion and $ 4 billion.
A high-ranking government official told CNN on Friday that they had received the requested information from State and USAID on the foreign aid funds Thursday evening and Thursday night that the funds are now available.
"The administration has requested a temporary suspension of spending on selected foreign aid accounts, which was effective until the State Department and USAID reported the non-binding balances in these accounts, after receiving and reviewing the information requested last night Funds are now available, "the official said in a statement.
However, the funds are only partially available. A USAID spokesman confirmed Wednesday that "OMB has released a new allocation from Friday, August 9, allowing the US State Department and USAID to cover funds from covered accounts up to a ceiling of about two percent commit the remaining unsecured funds per day. "
" The State Department and USAID are working with relevant offices and agencies to implement the revised OMB allocation and expect to see the next steps in the coming days, "said the spokesman.
The prospect of a resignation package has triggered bipartisan counter-reactions and condemnation by supporters. Congress thwarted a similar attempt last year.
On Friday, chairmen and senior members of the House and Senate Foreign Relations Committee wrote a letter to the current White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, and the Bureau of Management and Budget Director Russell Vought urged them to freeze to lift this money and not submit a recession package.
"It would be inappropriate for any government to try at all costs Such an action would be a precedent and a direct attack on the principle of separation of powers on which our nation was built, legislators wrote.
"As leaders of the congressional committees responsible for the US Foreign policy and having the proper provision and delivery of development and diplomacy programs, we would be forced to use all the tools at our disposal to respond appropriately if such action is taken "Senator Jim Risch, a Republican from Idaho, Senator Bob Menendez, a Democrat from New Jersey, Rep. Eliot Engel, a Democrat from New York, and Rep. Michael McCaul, a Republican from Texas, wrote.
"We urge the government not to present a new resignation package to Congress and to assure itself that no such package will be forthcoming," wrote the legislature.
Last week, Liz Schrayer, President of the US Global Leadership Council, denounced OMB's actions as "reckless and irresponsible."
"These are programs that are in our interest," she told CNN. "When we say goodbye to the field, we do so at our own risk, programs that boost our economic and security interests, and I find it really surprising that the administration is pulling back on what is less than 1%. our entire budget, if there are such great threats in the world.
