On Sunday, a bill was proposed in the US Senate to release $60 billion (€55.7 billion) to Ukraine. At the same time, it was decided to tighten US immigration policy. But House Republican Speaker Mike Johnson immediately opposed the bills.
A growing number of Republicans in the House of Representatives have long opposed releasing new funds for Ukraine. The package, pushed by President Joe Biden and his counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky, has been wrangling for months in the United States. Former President Donald Trump and others have opposed this.
Under pressure from Donald Trump, the US Senate failed to find a majority tonight for a bill that would free up funding for Ukraine and Israel and reform the US immigration system. Although it was negotiated for months.
A deal on a $17.6 billion envelope for Israel previously failed in the House of Representatives. President Joe Biden called for the deal to be tied to aid to Ukraine.
