Listen, we all know Joe Biden isn’t the one calling the shots in the big house, but Nancy Pelosi meeting with President Zelensky in Kyiv this past weekend promising him that we’re going to continue to arm Ukraine for as long as the Ukraine/Russia war rages on is a message that should only come from the President.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday pledged unwavering US support for Ukraine “until the fight is done” after she and a congressional delegation held an unannounced meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv.
According to the NY Post, Pelosi and Zelensky both posted tweets of the meeting – with the Ukraine leader linking to a video of him wearing fatigues and surrounded by armed guards as he greeted the Democratic congressional members in Kyiv on Saturday.
“We believe that we are visiting you to say thank you for your fight for freedom. We are on a frontier of freedom and your fight is a fight for everyone. Our commitment is to be there for you until the fight is done,” Pelosi said in a video posted on her account.
Yes, we’ve sent billions in aid and arms to Ukraine, and Biden is calling for Congress to hammer out another $33 billion package “ASAP”. But Nancy Pelosi making out-of-line declarations about our level of commitment is taking things too far and only goes to show what little respect she has for Joe Biden and his authority as President Of The United States.
But are we surprised? D.C. is a dumpster fire right now while the Democrats scramble to salvage what little respect they have left from the American people so it’s no wonder Pelosi thinks she can take the reins on foreign policy.
