Republicans and Democrats continue to argue over support for Ukraine. Former US President Donald Trump is also behind this. He wants to prevent Biden from winning on a particular issue before the election in the fall.
In a standoff between Republicans and President Joe Biden's Democrats, there is still no sign of an agreement on more aid to Ukraine. Mike Johnson, the Republican leader of the US House of Representatives, is reported to have warned that the bill coming from the Senate would be “dead” by the time it reaches its chamber, if rumors about its contents are correct.
US media reports that former US President Donald Trump has also intervened. The Republican, who wants to return to the White House after the presidential election in November, has reportedly urged his party colleagues in private conversations in recent weeks not to agree to a compromise in the Senate. Trump reportedly wanted to prevent Biden from winning on immigration on the campaign trail.
Last year, Biden sought billions in aid to Ukraine and new money from Congress to tighten immigration policies along the Mexico border. However, Republicans are opposed to approving the new aid because they are demanding that Biden tighten asylum policy in the United States. Tough talks on a new aid package for the country hit by Russia have so far made no progress.
The US has already provided 40 billion
The United States is considered Ukraine's most important ally in its fight against Russian aggression. Since the start of the war in February 2022, the United States, led by Biden, has provided or pledged $40 billion in military aid to Kiev. US support for Ukraine expired at the end of last year. At the end of December, the Pentagon announced the last military aid package for Ukraine.
“Time is already running out,” warned a White House spokesman. See what Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin is up to. According to Karine Jean-Pierre, the latter increased attacks against Ukraine. “It's the result of inaction.” He finally called on Congress to come up with a solution.
