President Biden urged Congress to pass supplemental funding for Ukraine before the holiday recess, emphasizing the importance of American support in preventing Russian aggression.

He warned of dire consequences if aid was not provided, including the potential for Russian expansion and conflict with NATO.

“Congress needs to pass supplemental funding for Ukraine before they break for the holiday recess. It’s as simple as that,” Biden said. (Trending: Trump Announces Major Promise For 2024)

“Congress — the Republicans in Congress — are willing to give Putin the greatest gift he could hope for and abandon our global leadership not just to Ukraine, but beyond that.”

“Who in the United States are prepared to walk away from that? I tell you, I’m not prepared to walk away, and I don’t think the American people are either,” Biden said.

“If Putin takes Ukraine, he won’t stop there.”

“It’s important to see the long run here. He’s going to keep going. He’s made that pretty clear. If Putin attacks a NATO ally — if he keeps going and then he attacks a NATO ally — well, we’ve committed as a NATO member that we’d defend every inch of NATO territory,” he said.

“Then we’ll have something that we don’t seek and that we don’t have today: American troops fighting Russian troops, American troops fighting Russian troops if he moves into other parts of NATO,” he added.

“Today’s vote is going to be long remembered.”

Despite Biden’s pleas, Congress blocked the $111 billion aid package, with Republicans linking Ukraine’s funding to border security.

“Extreme Republicans are playing chicken with our national security, holding Ukraine’s funding hostage to their extreme partisan border policies,” Biden said.

“I support real solutions at the border,” Biden added, despite Border Control’s data showing the complete opposite.

“Republicans have to decide if they want a political issue or if they want a solution at the border. Do they really want a solution? It cannot be sustained as it is now,” Biden said.

“Look, I know we have our divisions at home. Let’s get past them. This is critical.”

“Petty, partisan, angry politics can’t get in the way of our responsibilities as a leading nation in the world,” he said.

Biden criticized Republicans for prioritizing partisan politics over national security and urged for unity in addressing critical global issues.
