Biden Attacks Trump

Joe Biden

( – Joe Biden has come out swinging and slammed former President Donald Trump’s recent comments on NATO as Biden emphasized what he believes is the importance of supporting allies like Ukraine and Israel.

In a passionate address Biden talked about the need for the House of Representatives to reconsider and pass a bipartisan funding bill that the Senate approved in an early vote. This bill aims to provide significant aid to Ukraine, Israel, and other global partners, totaling $60 billion for Ukraine, with additional funds allocated to Israel and efforts to counter China’s influence in the Indo-Pacific region.

Biden expressed concern over Trump’s approach to NATO, describing it as transactional and detrimental to American security and global stability. “The stakes were already high for American security before this bill was passed… but in recent days, those stakes have risen and that’s because the former President has set a dangerous and shockingly and frankly, un-American signal to the world,” Biden said. He directly responded to Trump’s suggestion that aggression toward “delinquent” NATO members could be encouraged, stating, “Trump gave an invitation to Putin to invade some of our NATO allies.”

Highlighting the significance of NATO’s mutual defense commitment, Article 5, Biden reassured allies of the U.S.’s unwavering support. “For as long as I’m president, if Putin attacks a NATO ally, the United States will defend every inch of NATO territory,” he affirmed.

Biden also addressed the critical situation in Ukraine urging Congress to support the funding bill as a stand against Russian aggression. “Supporting this bill is standing up to Putin, opposing it is playing into Putin’s hands,” he explained, emphasizing the broader implications of failing to curb Russia’s ambitions in Ukraine.

The debate over the funding bill has seen pushback from House Republicans, who are calling for stricter border security measures. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has dismissed these demands, urging Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) to proceed with the Senate’s version of the bill.

Biden warned that history would judge the actions of Congress harshly if it fails to support Ukraine at this pivotal moment. “For Republicans in Congress who think they can oppose funding for Ukraine and not be help accountable, history is watching.”
