While Joe Biden has been in the White House for almost two years, many of the problems facing America continue to worsen. There is the Southern border crisis, soaring inflations, food shortages, and the gas prices barely changed.
Although some Democrats speak out on most of the issues, there isn’t much action coming from within the Biden administration, or at least not when it comes to America. When Russia decided to invade Ukraine, the Democrats were more than eager to throw billions of dollars worth of military and economic aid to help the Ukrainian people. And with Joe Biden announcing another $4.5 billion for Ukraine, politicians like Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar are calling for a “Total Foreign Aid Moratorium” lasting ten years.
Giving an update on how much the Biden administration has given Ukraine, Jack Hadfeld of Valiant News reported, “When including the amount spent on arms and other tangible resources, Ukraine will have received over $18 billion from the US this year alone.”
Tired of the spending, Paul Gosar demanded over a few tweets, “The solutions to many of our problems are actually quite simple. The historic flood of immigration? Close the border. Other countries are shamelessly looting our own? Turn off the money spigot. Millions of illegals are flooding across the border, bringing drugs, disease, & crime. Inflation, food costs, & gas prices are record high. Families are hurting.”
The congressman admitted, “We simply can’t afford to be sending tens of billions of dollars overseas anymore. We need a Foreign Aid Moratorium.”
Beyond the Biden administration’s handouts to Ukraine, Paul Gosar also harped on the recent raid of former President Donald Trump. Believing it to be nothing more than a weaponization of the FBI and a political attack on Trump, the Republican tweeted, “The FBI raid on Trump’s home tells us one thing. Failure is not an option. We must destroy the FBI. We must save America.”
Paul Gosar wasn’t the only Republican to speak out against the raid. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy added, “I’ve seen enough. The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization. When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned. Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar.”
As for Donald Trump, he addressed the raid of his property, writing, “It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections.”
Trump even compared America to a third-world country. “Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.”
