Rep. Burchett to Newsmax: Put US Security Before Foreign Aid

Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., told Newsmax on Wednesday he doesn’t see the need to rush through foreign aid bills to Ukraine and Taiwan, and questioned why the Republican-led House isn’t concentrating more on protecting America’s security.

Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., who is on the hot seat within his own conference, reportedly has scheduled a weekend vote on a series of bills that include billions of dollars in foreign aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, plus bills on handing seized Russian assets over to Ukraine; a bill that would give TikTok six months to divest itself from ByteDance, a company that has ties to the Chinese Communist Party; and a border security bill.

“I don’t see the rush for Taiwan money,” Burchett told “The Chris Salcedo Show.” “I don’t see the rush for Ukraine. Israel? Yes, but the rest of them, and then the TikTok bill is another one they’ve lumped in there somehow. It doesn’t make any sense to me. It doesn’t make any sense to America.”
