Just as many Americans face abject poverty due to Joe Biden’s fiscal policies and reckless inflationary spending, he announced even more taxpayer dollars will be used to fund Ukraine’s military.
While you struggle with record-high gas prices and increased food costs, the so-called leader of the free world has decided to make matters even worse.
On Wednesday, the Biden administration announced another taxpayer funded “military aid” package headed for Ukraine. This aid brings the total amount of military aid the United States has provided to Ukraine north of $5.5 billion since Russia invaded at the end of February.
This morning, I spoke with President Zelenskyy to discuss Russia’s brutal and ongoing war against Ukraine. I reaffirmed our commitment to stand by Ukraine and shared that the United States is providing over $1.2 billion in additional security and humanitarian assistance.

Meanwhile, Biden’s own American people struggle under the economic burden of his globalist policies — and this new aid package will only increase financial pressure for taxpayers.
The game doesn’t stop because of a little inflation problem — oh, no. Biden still has hoards of money to launder, and Ukraine is the perfect place to do it. What else did you expect? Ukraine is one of the most corrupt countries after all.
Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin recently held a meeting in Brussels with NATO and non-NATO allies, including Ukrainian Minister of Defense Oleksii Reznikov, to discuss the current course of Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine. The group decided that the U.S. was to provide additional munitions to Ukraine — much to the chagrin of the American consumer.
Austin told reporters after the meeting concluded that the aid includes guided MLRS munitions, 18 M777 howitzers, the tactical vehicles to tow them, and 36,000 rounds of 155-millimeter ammunition. The U.S. is also sending two Harpoon coastal defense systems, thousands of secure radios, thousands of night vision devices, and thermal sights under the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative.

Additionally, Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced his $350 million contribution to the new Ukraine aid package, which includes more “supplies” to the war-torn nation.
As authorized by @POTUS, I am directing the drawdown of $350 million in additional U.S. arms, equipment & supplies for Ukraine—part of $1 billion in U.S. support announced today to reinforce Ukraine’s defenses against Russia’s senseless war of choice. We stand #UnitedwithUkraine.

The announcement came less than 24 hours after Zelensky pleaded publicly that the aid “must come faster if we all live by the same goal,” and he added, “We have shown our strength, and now, it is very important that our Western partners show this strength together with us.”
The Biden administration has spent nearly $6 billion to fund the war in Ukraine, yet it doesn’t seem to be making a noticeable dent in Russia’s military forces. The Russian economy has also stabilized despite multiple rounds of sanctions from the U.S. and other western nations.
This begs the question: Who is really suffering, Vladimir Putin or the American people?
