McCarthy Shut Down Zelensky!

As the GOP pushes back against the White House’s push to give Ukraine a blank check to American Taxpayer dollars, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy rejected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s invitation for him to visit Kyiv.

“Let’s be very clear about what I said: no blank checks, OK? So, from that perspective, I don’t have to go to Ukraine to understand where there’s a blank check or not,” McCarthy said on CNN. “I will continue to get my briefings and others, but I don’t have to go to Ukraine or Kyiv to see it. And my point has always been, I won’t provide a blank check for anything.”

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and recently President Joe Biden visited Kyiv during its war with Russia.

The Republican Speakers’ comments came after Zelensky requested for McCarthy to visit Ukraine in order to see how US aid is being used.

“He has to come here to see how we work, what’s happening here, what war caused us, which people are fighting now, who are fighting now. And then after that, make your assumptions,” Zelensky said in an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

Congressional Republicans have notably been supportive of US security assistance to Ukraine in the past, however, there is a small but loud group of GOP lawmakers who are fervently against providing more aid. They align with former President Trump who has recently made comments about the continuous aid to Ukraine. The group includes Republicans like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.

“I think the US should be pushing for peace in Ukraine instead of funding and continuing a war that seems to be escalating and putting the entire world at risk of World War III,” Greene said at CPAC.

Greene’s stance on the issue is a mirror of Trump’s “America First” foreign policy approach. Trump has a history of being highly critical of US aid to other countries which he spoke openly about during his presidency.
