Mitch McConnell Blames Trump, Tucker Carlson for Delaying Funds to Ukraine

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell accused 2024 presidential nominee Donald Trump and former Fox News host Tucker Carlson of delaying funds for Ukraine.

McConnell announced in February that he was stepping down from the US Senate.

However, the aging RINO will be sticking around until after the 2024 election, probably to make sure Trump doesn’t win.

This week, McConnell blasted Tucker Carlson and President Trump for the delay in funding the Ukrainian War.

McConnell does not care about the fentanyl epidemic, the “invasion” at the US southern border, the soaring crime and American cities, or the record inflation under Joe Biden.

However, McConnell does care about how much money Ukraine gets.

Transcript:

Chad Pergram: You’ve been probably one of the most ardent backers of Ukraine in the Senate here. But what took so long to get some of these other eight Republicans persuaded to your position? Or was it the overall nature of this bill and what was lost in that time period for Ukraine?

Mitch McConnell: Well, that’s a good question. You already know the answer. I think the demonization of Ukraine began by Tucker Carlson, who, in my opinion, ended up where he It should have been all along, which is interviewing Vladimir Putin.

And so he had an enormous audience, which convinced a lot of rank and file Republicans that maybe this was a mistake.

I think the former President had mixed views on it. We all felt that border was a complete disaster, myself included.

Chad, you remember covering the phases we went through. First, there was an effort to make law, which requires you to deal with Democrats.

And then a number of our members thought it wasn’t good enough. And then our nominee for President didn’t seem to want us to do anything at all.

That took months to work our way through it. So we ended up doing the supplemental that was originally proposed, which dealt with not all problems.

It didn’t solve the border problem, but certainly addressed the growing threats at the moment.

In contrast, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) claimed the aid package for Ukraine would not have passed the House without help from Trump.

During this week’s broadcast on “Fox News Sunday,” Graham said:

“The Ukrainian military, with our help, has killed about 50% of the combat power of the Russians. This is the year of more.”

“They’re going to have more weapons, but we also want them to have new weapons, ATACMS to knock the bride down between Crimea and Russia,” he said.

“They are going to have F-16s. So, this idea give up on Ukraine makes the world safer, if you pull the plug on Ukraine cause you don’t have enough capability. There goes Taiwan.”

“Ukrainians are fighting like tigers This aid package has a loan component it. This would not have passed without Donald Trump.”
