‘Makes no sense’: Sen. Graham calls out Republicans who question Ukraine aid
At the White House, President Biden announced the US will send 31 Abrams tanks to Ukraine. But on Capitol Hill, Senator Lindsey Graham is calling out Republicans who question whether the US should continue to provide financial and military support.
Lindsey Graham: “So this idea that we can’t help Ukraine because we got a broken border really makes no sense. Because every problem we have gets worse. That’s like saying we can only fight the Germans or the Japanese, we can’t fight them both. You have to do what you have to do to secure the country.”
Graham just returned from a trip to Ukraine with Senator Richard Blumenthal. The bipartisan duo say if Putin is allowed to get away with invading Ukraine, it will have significant ramifications beyond Eastern Europe.
They said it could even make Chinese President Xi Jingping believe he could invade Taiwan without consequences.
Graham: “So the cost of defeating Putin is a good investment in stability of the world at large. I don’t want to live in a world where people can take things of others without consequence. I don’t want to live in a world where militaries can wrap women en masse.”
Graham and Blumenthal say members of Congress should go to Ukraine to meet with President Zelensky and go to Poland to meet with the US general in charge of making sure military aid is used properly. Straight from DC, I’m Ray Bogan.
