From a survey of America's charity habits:
On average, Americans think that 24% of the federal budget goes toward foreign aid.
In actuality, less than 1% does.
The priority of US “foreign aid” is arms and military assistance to foreign countries.
Last year alone, the United States provided a cool $18.6 Billion in arms and military assistance to foreign countries.
