As a possible shutdown looms Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is siding with Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer.
On September 27, McConnell affirm his support for Ukraine and said that if America doesn’t support Ukraine, a NATO ally would be next.
“We’re lined up here against China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran. That ought to tell you right from the beginning that you’re on the right side,” McConnell said. “If [Russian President Vladimir] Putin is to win this, some NATO country will be next. And I think it’s a lot smarter to just stop this invasion, to push him back.”
McConnell also attacked conservatives worried about out-of-control spending, claiming that they would be the cause for the chaos at the border. The comments were touted by Democrats.

Just remember that RINOs in the Senate knocked down Trump’s border wall saying that the proposed $21.6 billion wall was too expensive. According to the Council of Foreign Relations, the United States has given $75 billion in military aid to Ukraine.
As of the writing of this post the House led by McCarthy appears to be putting limitations on aid to Ukraine.
Regardless of how you feel about aid, both could have been done.
He also said, “Providing assistance for the Ukrainians to defeat the Russians—that’s the No. 1 priority of the United States right now, according to most Republicans.”

This is setting up a showdown between House Republicans and the Senate.
Amid the battle, Elon Musk joined the calls for McConnell to step down as the leader of the GOP in the Senate. McConnell, 81, recently was seen freezing up for a second time while taking questions from reporters.
“I have no announcements to make on that subject. I’m going to finish my term as leader and I’m going to finish my Senate term,” McConnell said.
