MARJORIE Taylor Greene has accused Joe Biden of "funding terrorism" with an "outrageous" payout to Palestinians.
The QAnon rep slammed the US president's decision to provide $235 million of aid to Palestinians to restore part of the assistance cut by Donald Trump.
The Georgia congresswoman described the payout as "appalling" as she announced she was filing fresh legislation to halt the "funding of terrorists".
A statement issued by Greene's today said she was continuing to put "America first" by introducing the No Funding For Terrorists Act.
Greene said the bill would "stop all financing to those who commit acts of violence against United States and Israeli citizens".
"The bill would prevent future payments like the $235,000,000 payout to the Palestinian Authority just authorized by the Biden administration," the statement said.
Greene said the legislation would "block all USAID funding to Gaza and the West Bank that would directly benefit the Palestinian Authority".
Two-thirds of the funding announced by the Biden administration will go to the UN's agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA – which has suffered a financial crisis after losing $360m of US funding in 2018.
In a statement issued last week, Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken said foreign aid "for the Palestinian people serves important US interests and values".
"It provides critical relief to those in great need, fosters economic development, and supports Israeli-Palestinian understanding, security coordination and stability," he said.
He added: "The United States is committed to advancing prosperity, security, and freedom for both Israelis and Palestinians in tangible ways in the immediate term, which is important in its own right, but also as a means to advance towards a negotiated two-state solution."
It comes after Greene ripped Biden's plans for firearm reform in the US.
She took to Twitter to share a picture of herself wielding a large gun on hours before Biden gave an address on gun reform laws.
"The right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT be infringed!" she raged – but Greene's rant didn't end there as she blasted the Democratic president's "misdirected" and "rabid power grab".
Greene said Biden "nor any other has no power to infringe on Americans 2nd Amendment rights" and tweeted that "the people know it".
The congresswoman revealed her father died on Sunday due to melanoma.
Greene, who supports the QAnon conspiracy theory, successfully ran for Congress in Georgia.
QAnon is an unfounded conspiracy theory that claims Trump is fighting a "deep state" network of political, entertainment, business and media elites.
The politician has expressed racist, anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim views in a series of videos, according to Politico.
