Dem. Congressman to Trump: You can't cut aid to foreign countries. That's Congress' job

Donald Trump has vowed to cut aid to Centran American countries if they don't get tough on caravans. But as US Representative Eliot L. Engel, (Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs) notes, Trump can't do that:

Fortunately, Congress—not the President—has the power of the purse, and my colleagues and I will not stand idly by as this Administration ignores congressional intent. My office has reached out to the Government Accountability Office, which is statutorily authorized to track acts of impoundment, to ensure that the President does not violate the Impoundment Control Act
