A controversial US congresswoman has promised ‘under Republicans, not another penny will go to Ukraine ‘ during a heated rally for Donald Trump.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, 48, claimed if Republicans retake control of Congress in Tuesday’s midterm elections funding for Ukraine would not be increased as she declared ”our country comes first.”
The right-wing politician said the Democrats “only care about Ukraine” and not “American’s southern border” as she vowed to put Americans first if Republicans retake the house.

Tuesday’s midterms will see all of the 435 seats in the House of Representatives up for grabs including 35 seats in the Senate.
Taylor Greene — known for enthusiastically spreading conspiracy theories and harassing rival politicians — told a Trump crowd in Sioux City, Iowa: “The only border they care about is Ukraine, not America’s southern border.
Marjorie Taylor Greene has been slammed by Democrats and some of her party after her comments
“Under Republicans, not another penny will go to Ukraine. Our country comes first. They don’t care about our border or our people.”
Just last month House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy proposed the idea of reducing the amount of money given to Ukraine in their war against Russia.
He said: “Ukraine is important, but at the same time it can’t be the only thing, and it can’t be a blank check.”
The comments have drawn criticism from Democrats and some Republicans including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell who has been a vocal supporter and champion for supporting Ukraine with military aid.
Republican Adam Kinzinger believes House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments show that a GOP majority would be “giving aid and comfort to the enemy.”
He told CNN on Wednesday: “Maybe in his mind, he actually did believe that all he was saying is, ‘Hey, we want to have some oversight in this.
“But what he did … you’re giving aid and comfort to the enemy, intentionally or unintentionally.”
Mr Kinzinger accused the minority leader of trying to cater for the far-right wing of the party as he bids to be Speaker.
