Ukrainians have been fighting off Russian aggression for over a year and the United States has contributed billions to the cause.
It’s quickly becoming one of the top -and most expensive- issues in our nation.
Tucker Carlson recently sent out a Ukraine-related questionnaire to all Republican presidential hopefuls and their answers are definitely worth reading.
Trump, the current front-runner for 2024, has a clear solution to the Ukraine crisis. First, Europe needs to start pulling their weight and pay their fair share to help Ukraine. And second, Ukraine needs to show that they’re serious about fighting back against Russia. If they can’t do that, then sorry Ukraine, but you’re on your own. Trump knows how to make deals, and he’s not afraid to use his negotiating skills to get the job done.
DeSantis, who is quickly becoming a rising star in the Republican party, also knows what’s best for America. He understands that getting involved in the Ukraine conflict is not in our best interest. We have too many other issues to deal with, like securing our borders and fighting back against the Chinese Communist Party. The Biden administration’s “blank check” approach to funding this conflict is just a distraction from the real problems we face.
Thankfully, it seems that both former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are not afraid to speak the truth and stand up for what’s right.
Mike Pence, another potential 2024 candidate took a more familiar, neocon stance, saying he recognizes the importance of stopping Putin in Ukraine. If we don’t act now, he’ll just keep moving forward and eventually, we’ll be drawn into a full-blown war.
“This is not America’s war, but if Putin is not stopped and the sovereign nation of Ukraine is not restored quickly, he will continue to move toward our NATO allies, and America would then be called upon to send our own,” Pence said. While he expressed concerns with the AMOUNT of money being spent, he also said that “withholding or reducing support will have consequences: If Putin is not stopped now and he moves into NATO-controlled territory, the cost will be far greater.”
As for Vivek Ramaswamy, who recently announced his candidacy, he’s not afraid to take a strong stance on the Ukraine crisis. He said boldly, “if I were president right now, I would limit any further funding or support to Ukraine.”
Guess he knows that we can’t just keep throwing money at the problem and hoping it goes away. We need to limit our funding and support to Ukraine and focus on the issues that matter most to the American people.
While some GOP figures like Kristi Noem, Greg Abbott, Tim Scott, and Chris Christie issued a response to Tucker Carlson’s questionnaire, others remained silent. But that’s just typical of the establishment politicians who are more concerned with maintaining their status quo than doing what’s right for America.
Obviously, the crisis in Ukraine is a complex issue, but one thing is clear – the Democrats are not capable of handling it.
