Donald Trump The son, the son of the 45th President of the United States, claimed that Ukraine Is one of the “most corrupt countries in the world” after President Joe Biden asked Congress to approve a $33 billion aid package for the war-torn country.
Mr. Biden on Thursday Propose another $33 billion in security, economic and humanitarian aid To help Ukraine in what he called a “very pivotal moment” as Russia’s president Vladimir Putin’s forces shifted their offensive to the eastern region of the country.
Asking Congress to approve the package “as quickly as possible,” Biden said, “We cannot stand idly by while the Russians continue their atrocities and aggression in Ukraine.”
“Every day Ukrainians are giving their lives for this fight, and we need to contribute arms, funding, ammunition and economic support to make their courage and sacrifice a goal so that they can continue this fight and do what they are doing,” the president added.
According to senior officials, the proposal, which includes $20.4 billion in military aid, $8.5 billion in economic aid and $3 billion in humanitarian aid, is necessary “to enable Ukraine to succeed over the next five months of this war.”
In response to the report, the eldest son of former President Donald Trump indicated that the fund sent by the United States would be “looted by corrupt politicians.”
How about using it to help needy Americans? Or maybe to secure our borders? Maybe get our energy sector back? Education? No, instead we’ll give it to one of the most corrupt countries in the world, where I’m sure corrupt politicians will plunder most of them “.
He was the Republican leader Earlier he was mocked for suggesting that his father should join NATO allies For high-stakes talks about the war in Ukraine.
Sending Biden to Europe for ‘high stakes’ NATO Conversations will only embolden our enemies. If you want to do something right, send Trump.
The new supplemental order of $33 billion is intended to provide funds to enable Washington to replenish arms stocks that have been withdrawn for shipment to Ukraine’s armed forces.
Biden added that the previous batch of assistance allowed the United States and its NATO allies to facilitate a “large flow of weapons and systems into Ukraine, including tanks, artillery and other weapons” that were delivered “at an unprecedented speed.”
Although the United States has ruled out sending its forces to Ukraine to fight Russian forces, Washington and its European NATO allies have supplied weapons such as drones, heavy howitzer artillery, Stinger anti-aircraft missiles, and Javelin anti-tank missiles.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky praised Biden’s “very important step.” “I am grateful to the American people and personally to President Biden for that,” he said in a late-night video address. “I hope Congress quickly approves our state’s request for assistance.”
