Just hours before leaving office Friday, former President Barack Obama quietly sent $220 million to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking.

Former State Department spokeswoman for the Obama Administration Marie Harf, also a Fox News contributor, joined Bill Hemmer on “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday to discuss this move.

“This is actually money that the Israelis have traditionally supported us giving to the Palestinians because it goes toward things like security reform and making sure the Palestinian Authority doesn’t collapse, and that’s actually in Israel’s security interest,” Harf said.

The money given to the Palestinians coincides with the $3.8 billion-a-year memorandum signed between the U.S. and Israel in September, guaranteeing a set level of funding for the Israelis over the next 10 years.

“We felt that was very important to sign under the Obama Administration to make sure the Israelis knew they were going to keep getting support from us,” Harf said.

Harf said she does not think President Donald Trump will reverse this $221 million in funding.

“If we don’t help the Palestinian Authority maintain stability, that’s actually really bad for Israel’s security,” she said.
