    Why were Christian groups turned down? Who decided not to give aid to Christian groups?
    If its spin, they were just farther back in line and pence fixed that.

    Actually, it the corrupt things they do after they get up that is the problem.

    Pence is also neck-deep in Trump's corrpuption and he will not become POTUS by default if Trump is removed from office by impeachment.

    "... the U.S. government had provided over $1.5 billion in assistance to Iraq in 2017 and 2018, “the vast majority in areas inhabited by Sunni and Shia Muslims.” The Obama administration did not publicize its spending on Iraqi religious groups in the same way, making an exact comparison difficult. ..."


    A country like ours being so generous with its aid to Muslims has the right to request that a comparative small amount of it goes to Christians as well.

    Pence is not involved in any by you imagined corruption and Trump will never be removed from office.

    How Mike Pence’s Office Meddled in Foreign Aid to Reroute Money to Favored Christian Groups — ProPublica
    email underscored what had become a stark reality under the Trump White House. Decisions about U.S. aid are often no longer being governed by career professionals applying a rigorous review of applicants and their capabilities.
    Bottom line bureaucrats want to make decisions behind the scenes in that rigorous process and it has been taken away from them and they want their petty revenge because they aren't in charge.

    No they don't. Even myself as an independent having had him as a governor of my state I wouldn't want anything to do with that guy. He's creepy!

    Did you read this statement about religious groups and US aid?

    USAID said that awards “must be free from political interference or even the appearance of such interference and must be made on the basis of merit, not on the basis of the religious affiliation of a recipient organization, or lack thereof.”

    Right ... so, now it's time to find out what the merit is based on and who decides who is "worthy" of any merit at all.
    According to Trump and Pence, persecuted Christians in predominantly Muslim countries are definitely worthy of merit ... and I agree.

    The ignored Christian groups are getting some of the USAID money now ... thanks to Pence and Trump.
