Nikki Haley criticized Congress for linking foreign aid to border security, stating that both can be prioritized.

She emphasized the importance of supporting Ukraine and Israel while securing the border for national security.

“Congress is failing because they’re making this sound like you have to choose between Ukraine and Israel, or securing the border. They are lying to the American people. That’s a false premise. We can do both,” Haley said.

Haley urged President Biden to better communicate these priorities to the American people.

She warned about the threat of Vladimir Putin expanding into Baltic countries and the significance of aiding Ukraine to prevent further conflict.

“Securing our southern border is priority number one, but making sure that we help Ukraine and Israel is also about preventing war. If we just supported Ukraine and Israel, that’s only 5% of our defense budget. If we supported Ukraine, Israel and secured the border, that’s less than 20% of Biden’s green subsidies,” she said.

“So this is not about the American people having to choose either/or. This is about Joe Biden and Congress understanding that they need to choose national security. They need to choose preventing war, and their job is to keep Americans safe, and they have to communicate that to the American people, and they are not doing that right now,” she said.

“Well first, I think you have to talk about what Joe Biden should be doing,” Haley later said.

“First of all, the reason you’re seeing America become more isolationist is that at no point has Joe Biden had a conversation with the American people about why Ukraine is important. At no point has he had a conversation with them – with the American people about the terrorist activity that’s happening with Israel and why Iran is so dangerous. At no point is he talking about the threat of China, and when you don’t talk about those things with the American people, they’re going to distance themselves from it. And so, Joe Biden has failed on that front. That has emboldened our enemies.”

The $95 billion aid package includes support for Ukraine, Israel, Gaza, and allies in the Indo-Pacific region.

Haley expressed concerns about Trump’s stance on Putin and hinted at the potential consequences of his nomination in the upcoming presidential race.

“He’s moving in for the next era,” Haley said regarding Putin. “Let’s remind the American people that Putin said once he takes Ukraine, Poland and the Baltics are next. Now he is putting soldiers around those countries just as he did Ukraine. And if that happens, those are NATO countries, that immediately puts America at war. That is what we’re trying to avoid, and that’s why this aid package is so important. Ukraine’s not asking for troops. They’re just asking for the equipment and ammunition to win this war. They have a great fighting force. We need to give them what they need so that they can win so that we can prevent having to send any of our military men and women to fight.”
