Crenshaw, Greene Feud Over Ukrainian Aid Bill

Share

Reps. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) sparred on Twitter over an Ukrainian aid bill.

Crenshaw responded to criticism he received for voting in favor of the bill.

“Yeah, because investing in the destruction of our adversary’s military, without losing a single American troop, strikes me as a good idea. You should feel the same,” Crenshaw said.

Greene responded, “So you think we are funding a proxy war with Russia? You speak as if Ukrainian lives should be thrown away, as if they have no value. Just used and thrown away.”

She continued, “For your proxy war? How does that help Americans? How does any of this help?”

Crenshaw then fired back, “Still going after that slot on Russia Today huh?”

On Tuesday, the House approved a $40 billion Ukraine aid package.

The Associated Press noted the bill brings U.S. support to close to $54 billion.

The outlet explained the legislation “includes $6 billion to arm and train Ukrainian forces, $8.7 billion to restore American stores of weapons shipped to Ukraine and $3.9 billion for U.S. forces deployed to the area.”

Additionally, there is “$8.8 billion in economic support for Ukraine, $4 billion to help Ukraine and allies finance arms and equipment purchases and $900 million for housing, education and other help for Ukrainian refugees in the U.S.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) penned a letter to lawmakers ahead of the vote.

“Time is of the essence — and we cannot afford to wait,” Pelosi said.

She added, “With this aid package, America sends a resounding message to the world of our unwavering determination to stand with the courageous people of Ukraine until victory is won.”

A top U.S. intelligence official said Tuesday Russian President Vladimir Putin appears to be getting ready for “a prolonged conflict,” as The Washington Post reported.
