Ukraine has received more than $113 billion in aid from the United States since Putin invaded the country in February of 2022.
Polls show a majority of Americans oppose sending more aid to Ukraine.
But Mitch McConnell said eight words about Joe Biden’s proxy war with Russia in Ukraine that will have you seeing red.
After Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine last February, Joe Biden promised to support the war-torn country for “as long as it takes.”
The United States has already sent Ukraine more than $113 billion in aid.
According to a recent study by the Heritage Foundation, “the formal aid packages alone amount to a staggering $113 billion – roughly $900 per American household.”
Recent polls show the American people are starting to sour on funding Biden’s proxy war with Russia in Ukraine.
A CNN poll found 55 percent of Americans believe Congress should not send more money to the war-torn nation.
“As the war in Ukraine becomes a prolonged conflict, Americans are rightly growing skeptical of sending more taxpayer dollars and equipment from our depleted armory,” Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts told The Daily Signal. “Washington has failed to address their concerns, explain our nation’s strategy in the war, or enact basic oversight for our aid,” he continued, before adding that “if Congress can’t fix those fundamental issues, they have no business sending more money into the fog of war.”
But Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell agrees with Joe Biden about funding the war in Ukraine for “as long as it takes.”
During a panel, McConnell was asked about an official declaring that America could not “do anything and everything forever” in Ukraine.
“That’s obviously a person who doesn’t know what they’re talking about,” McConnell fired back. “So let me just tell you what the people who are actually elected to office and actually make the decisions about how long America is committed to this think: Russia has to lose in Ukraine, and we can’t put a time limit on it.”
McConnell said “we are helping these brave Ukrainians defeat the army of one of our biggest adversaries,” before adding that “I can’t think of anything not to like about that.”
Of course, Mitch McConnell’s never-ending support for the war in Ukraine is not all that surprising.
After all, McConnell is a RINO warmonger who comes from the John McCain/George Bush wing of the Republican Party.
But like Joe Biden, McConnell is also facing growing calls to resign over his age and apparent health issues.
And Mitch McConnell’s time as the longest serving leader in Senate history may soon come to an end.
