Joe Biden recently visited Ukraine instead of East Palestine, Ohio.
And the decision drew fire from across the political spectrum.
That’s why Ron DeSantis ripped into Biden’s ‘blank check’ to Ukraine following this major decision.
A blank-check policy with no clear, strategic objective
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis ripped President Joe Biden for the unending and unaccounted for taxpayer dollars flowing to Ukraine with no end in sight.
During a recent appearance on Fox & Friends, DeSantis attacked President Biden’s “blank check” policy as the war in Ukraine nears the one-year mark.
“They have effectively a blank-check policy with no clear, strategic objective identified, and these things can escalate, and I don’t think it’s in our interests to be getting into a proxy war with China, getting involved over things like the borderlands or over Crimea,” DeSantis, who is rumored to be a Republican 2024 Presidential candidate, said.
The popular Governor then added, “I think it would behoove them to identify what is the strategic objective that they’re trying to achieve, but just saying it’s an open-ended blank check, that is not acceptable.”
Biden recently made a surprise visit to Kyiv, Ukraine, spending 10 hours on a train from the Polish border in order to arrive at the Ukrainian capital.
In Kyiv, President Biden and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky walked together through the streets as air raid sirens screamed throughout the city.
Made for TV
Most observers were quick to point out the made-for-TV atmosphere surrounding Biden’s visit, as reports indicate the air raid sirens in the Ukrainian capital haven’t sounded in weeks.
And most pointed out the idiocy of two leaders strolling down the street as a supposed attack was heading their way.
Of course, there never was any attack.
Biden’s made-for-TV visit comes just as his regime announced another $10 billion taxpayer funded aid package to Ukraine.
During Biden’s visit, as well as in a subsequent news conference, Biden pledged America’s “unwavering” support for the war-torn country, and announced an additional immediate $500 million military aid package was on its way.
This is in addition to the more than $100 billion the U.S. has already sent.
The new $500 million military package will go toward artillery ammunition, Javelin missiles, and howitzers.
President Biden did not comment on a specific ask by Ukraine for long-range weapons and fighter jets.
DeSantis say Biden’s weakness probably caused the war
Governor DeSantis said during an interview on Fox News that the war in Ukraine likely would not have happened if Biden had shown any strength during his first two years in office.
DeSantis also said the President needed to prioritize problems here in the U.S., including the Biden border crisis and spike in fentanyl related deaths.
“I don’t think any of this would have happened but for the weakness that the president showed during his first year in office, culminating, of course, in the disastrous withdrawal in Afghanistan,” DeSantis said.
“So, I think, while he’s over there, I think I and many Americans are thinking to ourselves, ‘OK, he’s very concerned about those borders halfway around the world,” he added. “He’s not done anything to secure our own border here at home.'”
“We’ve had millions and millions of people pour in, tens of thousands of Americans dead because of fentanyl, and then, of course, we just suffered a national humiliation of having China fly a spy balloon clear across the continental United States,” the Governor concluded.
It’s clear Joe Biden cares more about Ukraine than he does his own nation, and Ron DeSantis is making sure Americans know that.
