"The president has explained about waste and asking for our foreign assistance, and asks that we have to spend the aid money," said a senior White House official.

But after making an important contribution the Republicans and Democrats announced support for the effort, Trump finally gave up.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the Democratic Party who supported the House said, "It has been transferred which has become part of the American budget which was issued from what had been previously obtained."

Republican figures Lindsey Graham and Hal Rogers said canceling foreign aid "would harm national security and counterterrorist efforts, and would also make it difficult for budget negotiations between the White House and Congress in the future."
