President Joe Biden slammed Republicans who may move to scale down funding to support Ukraine in fending off a monthslong invasion by Russia.

The war in Ukraine will have “serious consequential outcomes,” Biden said during his remarks at a fundraiser for Senate candidate John Fetterman (D-PA) in Pennsylvania.


“They said that if they win, they’re not likely to fund, to continue to fund Ukraine,” Biden said, according to a White House press pool report. “These guys don’t get it. It’s a lot bigger than Ukraine. It’s Eastern Europe. It’s NATO. It’s really serious, serious consequential outcomes.”

He also slammed the GOP as having “no sense of American foreign policy.”

“These guys on the other team don’t get it. They don’t get it that how America does is going to determine how the rest of the world does,” Biden said.

Earlier this week, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said if Republicans take back power in Congress after the midterm elections, they will no longer be issuing a “blank check to Ukraine.”

“Ukraine is important, but at the same time, it can’t be the only thing they do, and it can’t be a blank check,” McCarthy told Punchbowl News.

Republicans are currently favored to win a majority in the House in the Nov. 8 midterm elections, but control of the Senate remains a toss-up, per Politico.
