A costly humanitarian aid pier built by the US to rush aid to Gaza has proven to be a colossal waste of taxpayer money. The project’s costs nearly doubled from initial estimates of $230 million to $320 million due to the challenges involved in constructing and operating the pier in a war-torn region.

Since its installation in May, the aid pier has been plagued by technical issues, security concerns, and logistical nightmares. It has reportedly only been operational for a mere 10 days, spending the rest of the time under repair or sitting idle due to safety concerns. Critics argue that the pier served no purpose other than providing “humanitarian cover” for Biden’s weak response to the Hamas-led attack against Israel on October 7.

“His irresponsible and expensive experiment defies all logic except the obvious political explanation, which is to appease the president’s far-left flank,” Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) told the New York Times.

During his State of the Union address, Biden claimed that the pier would deliver up to two million meals per day. However, in reality, the equivalent of only seven truckloads have been able to making their way to Gaza’s shores daily. Biden’s failed taxpayer-funded pier is now expected to be dismantled as early as July.

    Let Biden pay for the pier out of his own money that he got from China. How dare he spend and wate our money to help terrorist that chant death to America
