President Joe Biden is reportedly set to take extraordinary executive action which would see a large amount of Afghan funds, frozen after the Taliban takeover of the country.

As The Hill reports:


President Biden signed an executive order on Friday intended to free up $7 billion in assets from Afghanistan’s central bank being held in the U.S., half of which could go to humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan and the other half for compensation to the families of 9/11 victims.

The White House said in a release that the executive order is “designed to provide a path for the funds to reach the people of Afghanistan while keeping them out of the hands of the Taliban and malicious actors.”

In signing the executive order, Biden is blocking property of Afghanistan’s central bank that is held in the U.S. and requiring American financial institutions to transfer the assets into a consolidated account at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

The effort is unusual, as it involves money held by a foreign government on U.S. soil. It is likely to be the subject of complex litigation.

A senior administration official reportedly told The Hill that a federal court would ultimately have to issue a ruling in order for the 9/11 victim’s families to be able to receive the 3.5 billion dollars currently being held by the U.S. Government.

Probably going to give the money to Iran. That would be a typical Bidummy move.

Bidon is nothing, he is mental unstable puppy, he is following his master- Obamos. It’s agenda to bleeding America and make inflation even more worse ( great depression was baby, Now America has triple depression) by printing money and send to support terrorists countries ( first was done Franklin Roosevelt’s). More reducales : America paid for providing security enemies., Not own country and citizens. None countries respect America anymore, make funs and laughs. America is collapsing like Soviet union and rest Europe.
Obama gave the green lights for all socialist, Islamic terrorist entering our country. No border No country existing-

Damn right they don’t see a dime from anyone. The people who do see that money is the biden’s, pelosi’s, Schumer’s a d all the other crooked son of bitches in congress. Not all are crooked like the biden’s or Pelosi’s. But most are. There’s a few good men and women in Republican party who aren’t like the crooked ass dumb-o-rats. God help us if we don’t get biden the hell out of the presidency. Our country is already failing because of that lying loser. I wish they’d get all those theives in prison. Starting with OBAMA’S and BIDENS.
