(Worthy News) - In a dramatic policy shift, President Donald Trump is reportedly preparing two executive orders that would halt US funding to the UN and other bodies that grant full membership to the Palestinian Authority and the PLO, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

The orders would reduce the United States’ role in international bodies, including the United Nations, and start a review process that would seek to potentially withdraw from multilateral treaties, the report said. Trump has been spending his first days in office signing a series of executive actions, including on abortion, immigration and border control.

According to the report in the New York Times, a first draft order, titled “Auditing and Reducing US Funding of International Organizations,” would drastically reduce or terminate funding for UN agencies or other bodies that meet any one of several criteria, including if said agencies “give full membership to the Palestinian Authority or Palestine Liberation Organization,” support abortion programs, or have engaged in any activity that skirts international sanctions against Iran or North Korea.

    The much-discussed $221 million transfer to Palestine authorized by Barack Obama just hours before Trump was sworn into the presidency has already reached West Bank and Gaza, an advisor to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has claimed.
    "We have already received the last sum assigned by Obama's administration. They have transferred this money," Husam Zomlot, strategic affairs advisor to the Palestine president, told RIA Novosti in an interview on Thursday.
