Republicans suspect partisan interest in Biden's request for $12 billion to Kyiv By requesting another aid package to Ukraine, US President Joe Biden may be acting in favor of the Democrats ahead of the midterm elections, and not in the interests of the country, the Republican Party said
The Republican Party of the United States suspects that President Joe Biden is guided by the interests of his own party, not the country, asking Congress for $ 11.7 billion in aid to Ukraine, Fox News reports.
According to the Republicans, the allocation of new funds to Kyiv calculated on the growing popularity of the Democrats ahead of the US midterm elections, which will be held in November.
“This latest request from President Biden— just a superficial stunt in the midterms that will only hurt our country in both the short and long term,— said Republican Rep. Andy Biggs.
Another Republican congressman Scott Perry pointed out that the timing of Kyiv's funding request should be adopted in the context of Biden's recent behavior, namely attempts to portray the Republicans as a threat to democracy.
“Over the past five weeks, the federal government has raided the home of former President [Donald Trump] <…> at the same time, President [Joe Biden] says that half of the country— “semi-fascists”, — Perry pointed out. He added that the questions [around this relief bill] seem “very political.”
U.S. President Joe Biden said on Sept. 2 that Republicans who support Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again (MAGA) program , “Make America Great Again”, represent extremist forces that threaten “the very foundations of the Republic”.
In response, Trump called the incumbent leader “an enemy of the state.” According to him, Biden's speech was “the most vicious, full of hatred and division.”
