President Joe Biden on Sunday vowed the US wouldn’t abandon Ukraine regardless of support being dropped from a deal to keep away from a authorities shutdown, urging Republicans to “cease the video games” on funding.
“I wish to guarantee our American allies, the American folks, and the folks in Ukraine which you could depend on our help. We won’t stroll away,” Biden mentioned in an handle from the White Home.
Biden mentioned there was an “overwhelming sense of urgency” to get Congress to go a brand new bundle of help to Ukraine within the days and weeks to come back because it battles the Russian invasion.
An Eleventh-hour deal by Congress late Saturday to keep away from a US authorities shutdown contained no new war-time support for Ukraine as a part of a compromise between Republicans and Democrats.
Democrat Biden lashed out at Republicans and referred to as on Home Speaker Kevin McCarthy to keep away from one other shutdown drama when the 45-day stopgap deal agreed on Saturday runs out.
“I am sick and uninterested in the brinksmanship,” Biden mentioned, talking from the Roosevelt Room on the White Home.
“The brinksmanship has to finish. There should not be one other disaster.”
