President Biden said he "does not understand" Republicans' threat to cut off funding for Ukraine if they win the House. President Biden is responding to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments that if the Republican Party won control of the house, they would resist giving a “blank check” to Ukraine. President Biden has continued to support the Ukrainians since the wrongful invasion of their country by Russia in February and he and the Democratic Congress have approved billions of dollars in aid to be sent to help Ukraine fight the war.
REPORTER: “You heard the Republicans, you have the means and the will to continue supporting Ukraine?”
BIDEN: “Yes. Because if we support Ukraine we’re supporting all of Europe. We're supporting NATO. Do you think that Mr. Putin decides, he's just going to deal with Ukraine and that's the end of it? This, no, I don't understand the threat that they're saying, they may have to stop funding the Ukrainians and they're, they’re war against his brutal dictator.”
