The establishment of both political parties in Washington, D.C. stand behind Joe Biden’s promise to send weapons and cash to Ukraine “for as long as it takes.”
But Florida Governor Ron DeSantis thinks Joe Biden is wrong.
And Ron DeSantis described the war in Ukraine by two words that sent Chuck Schumer off the rails.
Joe Biden’s proxy war with Russia in Ukraine is creating political divisions within both parties in Washington, D.C.
During the first year of the war, Joe Biden and the political class sent $113 billion in aid to Ukraine, with more than $32 billion of it in weapons.
On President’s Day, Joe Biden took a surprise trip to Ukraine where he promised to continue sending weapons and cash to fight his proxy war with Russia “for as long as it takes.”
But more and more Americans are growing concerned about the consequences of Biden’s proxy war with Russia.
America’s homeland is suffering from a massive border crisis, skyrocketing crime rates, and the economy is teetering on the brink of collapse.
Furthermore, Joe Biden’s proxy war with Russia is on a path where the only ending is World War III and nuclear Armageddon.
But while the establishment in both parties are united behind Biden on Ukraine, America First Republicans are speaking out against his proxy war.
Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson recently asked every major and potential candidate for President for their views on the Ukraine war.
Since Governor Ron DeSantis focuses mostly on domestic issues inside the Sunshine State, his response was highly anticipated by Carlson’s viewers.
And Ron DeSantis made it perfectly clear that he does not support Biden’s “blank check” for Ukraine.
“The Biden administration’s virtual ‘blank check’ funding of this conflict for ‘as long as it takes,’ without any defined objectives or accountability, distracts from our country’s most pressing challenges,” DeSantis said.
DeSantis added that America is facing too many problems here at home to be involved in a “territorial dispute” between two foreign nations.
“While the U.S. has many vital national interests — securing our borders, addressing the crisis of readiness within our military, achieving energy security and independence, and checking the economic, cultural, and military power of the Chinese Communist Party — becoming further entangled in a territorial dispute between Ukraine and Russia is not one of them,” DeSantis told Carlson.
Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) flew off the rails on Wednesday over DeSantis referring to it as a “territorial dispute.”
“One Republican Governor in particular said yesterday that defending Ukraine and opposing Putin is not a vital national interest,” Schumer said on the floor of the Senate. “He called Putin’s illegal and unprovoked invasion of another sovereign democracy ‘a territorial dispute,’” he continued, before adding “he basically thinks the U.S. is wrong to support Ukraine as they fight and die to protect their democracy, and he’s certainly not alone in thinking that on the hard Right.”
Schumer accused DeSantis of being an “isolationist” and said it “is dangerous, it is un-American, undemocratic, and it is woefully blind to the lessons of history.”
Chuck Schumer may be furious at DeSantis.
But conservatives were excited to find out that he does not support the same foreign policy as establishment warmongers like Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham.
