On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” CNN Counterterrorism Analyst and former CIA counterterrorism official Philip Mudd argued that the Trump administration threatening to withhold aid to countries that voted to condemn the US moving its embassy to Jerusalem is “diplomatic prostitution.”

Mudd said, “Remember, this isn’t just about aid. If you look, for example, about the US relationship with Egypt, one of the reasons that the president has developed a relationship with President Sisi of Egypt is that he is so aggressive against the version of ISIS that is operating Egypt. Do you think the president’s going to get on the phone and say, ‘Because of one vote that’s non-binding in the UN, we’re going to back down on our partnership with you as you kill ISIS partners in Egypt?’ That is not going to happen. Let me be blunt here, Wolf, this is diplomatic prostitution. We are telling people, ‘Unless you vote with us, we’re not going to give you money. And if your heart doesn’t agree with American policies, we’re not going to support you in terms of US aid.’ It’s not going to happen. The Americans aren’t going to do it, and the president’s not going to back it up.”

Instead of a ceasefire, allowing countries and humanitarian organisations to focus on battling the COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing violence is pushing millions to the brink of conflict-induced famine and hindering the battle against the outbreak.
