Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) ripped Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during her speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), addressing his comments about the consequences of losing the war with Russia.
Greene, who is a massive opponent of U.S. Ukraine, took issue with Zelensky’s claims that a Russian invasion of a NATO member state could see the deployment of U.S. forces.
“And while I will look at a camera and directly tell Zelensky, you’d better leave your hands off of our sons and daughters because they’re not dying over there,” Greene said as the crowd erupted.
Greene on Friday told the CPAC crowd that she was still “committed to saying no money to Ukraine, and that country needs to find peace, not war.”
While Ukraine is not a member of NATO, Zelensky’s comments raised eyebrows about the stability of neighboring countries, which are NATO members, such as the Baltic nations.
“The U.S. will have to send their sons and daughters exactly the same way as we are sending our sons and daughters to war,” Zelensky said.
“And they will have to fight, because it’s NATO that we’re talking about, and they will be dying.”
