The Republican conservative’s group says it supports the Ukraine but doesn’t want American monetary support continued…
Putting it opposite MOST American’s approving US assistance to the Ukraine…
There ARE other conservative Republicans who seem to be supporting the Russians despite the daily reports of atrocities and random bombing of civilian area’s in the Russian President’s invasion of the Ukraine….
These people seem to be following Donald Trump’s allegiance to Putin against America….
One wonders what their definition of ‘American Patriotism and Democracy’ has turned to?
We KNOW Trump’s action’s are JUST for himself…..
In a statement, CPAC expressed support for Ukraine but maintained opposition to American aid for the embattled country.
“We must oppose Putin, but American taxpayers should not be shouldering the vast majority of the cost,” the statement said. “The tweet belittled the plight of the innocent Ukrainian people.”
CPAC has repeatedly flirted with pro-Putin views in recent years, including hosting Hungary’s pro-Russia prime minister, Victor Orban, at a Dallas conference in August.
CPAC is not alone among American conservatives in opposing Ukrainian aid despite Putin’s invasion. Fox News host Tucker Carlson has alleged U.S. sabotage for leaks in a Russian gas pipeline to Europe, baseless claims that have earned him airtime on Russian state television. Former president Donald Trump also posted a message on his Truth Social platform offering himself as a negotiator for the conflict
At a Trump rally in Michigan on Saturday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) reiterated her opposition to U.S. aid to Ukraine and said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky should negotiate a peace settlement with Russia.
“We have so many problems here at home, I cannot even think about sending our money over to fund a proxy war with Russia,” she said in an interview. “Zelensky doesn’t run the United States government. He is not our president, but for some reason Joe Biden bends over every single time. … The American people don’t care about that war over there.”
At the Michigan rally, Trump suggested he could have prevented Putin from invading Ukraine.
“That war would never ever have happened if I were president and it didn’t happen,” Trump said.
Many Republicans have followed Trump’s lead in waffling on Putin, whom Trump avoided condemning and sided with over his own intelligence agencies in doubting Russian interference in the 2016 election….
