As a Republican congressman and pundit, Ron Paul has long called for an end to foreign aid.

With Saudi Arabia now promising to give aid to Egypt if the United States cuts off financial support, the former House member and presidential candidate says that country has more interest because it is "their neighborhood." He would prefer, though, that the United States not be giving aid to the Saudis, either.

Appearing on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto," Paul said the Saudis don't tell the United States how to deal with its border with Mexico, so why should the U.S. be involved in Middle East disputes?

Asked whether he worries the Russians or Chinese might try to fill the void by providing aid of their own, which might be detrimental to America, Paul said Russia is weak and it goes against China's tradition.

"The Chinese tradition the last 10 years or so is to work hard, save money and buy up oil interests not only in Iran and other places," he said. "They're acting like capitalists" while America sends troops around the world "trying to pick and choose these leaders, and we always mess up."
