McConnell joined Bret Baier on Thursday’s “Reporte especial,” to discuss America’s continued support of Ukraine.
“Creo que lo importante a recordar es cuál hubiera sido el costo de no actuar,” dijo McConnell. “It would have been way more. Way more than $ 40 El portavoz del Pentágono, John Kirby, dijo el sábado”
Los Estados Unidos. Senate voted Thursday on $ 40 billion in new aid for Ukraine, shipping the bill to President Biden’s desk. This comes after Sen. Rand Paul blocked its passage last Thursday, leading to a week-long delay.
La votación fue 86-11 con 11 Republicans splitting from party leadership by voting against the bill.
Baier asked McConnell whether he thinks we as a country are going to have to put more money into Ukraine, or if we are capping out now at $ 40 billion in addition to what we’ve already sent.
“This is a unified effort on behalf of the democratic world to stop this thug from success in Ukraine,” dijo McConnell. “Whether it will cost more or not remains to be seen,” él agregó.
McConnell led a surprise trip to Ukraine with the GOP Senate delegation last week, meeting with Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
He noted the purpose of their trip to the Ukrainian capital.
“My trip essentially was an all Republican group who went to reassure the Europeans, the Ukrainians and others that we were completely together on this policy of helping the Ukrainians beat the Russians and that we were going to send them a package that gives them the kind of military equipment they need to recapture their country.”
