Marjorie Taylor Greene was quick to tweet her frustration on Twitter Tuesday just one day after President Joe Biden signed the ‘Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022’ that will streamline U.S. military aid to Ukraine.
“We swore an oath to serve the United States of AMERICA. Not the United States of Ukraine. American mothers can’t buy baby formula, deadly fentanyl from Mexican cartels is killing record numbers of Americans, & farmers are on the verge of going out of business. Focus on HOME!”
Congresswoman Greene and other high profile America First Conservatives including Senator Ted Cruz, Lauren Boebert, and Jim Jordan have blasted President Biden and DHS Alejandro Mayorkas for not focusing on the raging border crisis that continues to plague America today.
Americans are growing increasingly tired of Biden’s America last policies including his recent request to Congress on Monday to ‘immediately’ pass a $40 billion Ukrainian aid bill. Biden initially requested $33 billion to help Ukraine as it fights Russia, but Congress has proposed billions more for food aid and military equipment.
“We cannot afford delay in this vital war effort,” Biden said in the statement. “Hence, I am prepared to accept that these two measures move separately so that the Ukrainian aid bill can get to my desk right away.”
Democrats are now expected to consider the Ukraine aid package in the House as soon as Tuesday and Covid-19 relief later.
