Mitch McConnell Sides With Democrats In Ukraine Funding Fight

Chuck Schumer scored a massive win.

It wouldn’t have been possible without dissension in the GOP ranks.

And Chuck Schumer grinned like a goat after this RINO stabbed Trump supporters in the back.

As Great American Daily reports:

Joe Biden demanded Congress rubberstamp billions more as part of the blank check for the war in Ukraine.

America is over $32 trillion in debt and facing a crisis at the southern border and conservatives see Biden pursuing the globalist agenda as a luxury the United States cannot afford on multiple fronts.

But don’t tell that to RINO Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

McConnell is fully on board with Joe Biden’s scheme to tie in a $24 billion request for more funding for Ukraine as part of a $40 billion supplemental request for disaster relief to aid the recovery in Hawaii from the wildfires and Hurricane Idalia in Florida.

In his remarks McConnell baselessly claimed the war in Ukraine is essential to America’s national security as opposed to a reckless adventure that risks nuclear war with Russia and weakens America’s hand in deterring Communist China from invading Taiwan.

“Standing with our allies against Putin is directly and measurably strengthening the U.S. military,” McConnell added. “Growing the U.S. industrial base and supporting thousands of good-paying American jobs. The overwhelming majority of the money we have appropriated is being spent here in America.”

Majority Leader Chuck Schumer agreed.

“The worst thing we can do right now for our own national security and for our democratic values is to waver or hesitate in our support,” Schumer added. “What is the point in cutting off support now when we’re at a turning point in the war?”

McConnell wants to jam the House of Representatives because House Speaker Kevin McCarthy wants to split the Ukraine money off into a separate bill and tie it to more border security funding and changes proposed by conservatives for border enforcement to finally get a handle on the illegal immigration crisis.

Conservatives opposed to Ukraine funding have the public on their side.

A recent CNN poll found 55 percent of Americans and 71 percent of Republicans oppose any new funding for Joe Biden’s war against Russia in Ukraine.

But McConnell is willing to sell out his own voters to fund the war in Ukraine by any means necessary.

Last December McConnell conspired with Schumer and Biden to ram a $1.7 trillion socialist spending bill through the Congress.

The big-government boondoggle contained billions of dollars for Ukraine and banned new money being spent on securing America’s border.

McConnell then falsely claimed the number-one priority of the Republican Party was securing Ukraine’s border.

In a press conference McConnell declared that “providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans. That’s how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment.”

Donald Trump Jr. could not believe what he was hearing posting on social media that he doesn’t know one Republican who thinks securing Ukraine’s border is more important than securing America’s southern border.

“Mitch McConnell actually said yesterday that most Republicans #1 priority is … Ukraine. I have yet to meet a single Republican that thinks that, but I guess the disconnect between actual republicans and DC swamp rats shouldn’t surprise anyone,” Trump Jr. exclaimed.

Mitch McConnell picked up right where he left from last year with selling out conservatives to help Joe Biden push his agenda through Congress.
