Because Donald Trump wanted it that way: no new money from the USA for Ukraine

Republicans and Democrats wanted to prevent irregular immigration with a new border law. At the same time, Ukraine and Israel should receive billions in aid. Now the compromise has failed because Donald Trump wanted it that way. But Joe Biden also made mistakes.

Mitch McConnell doesn’t even try to reinterpret history. “It was our side that wanted to tackle the border issue,” said the Senate Republican minority leader. “We started this.” When the 81-year-old speaks in the we form, he means the Republicans. Senators from both parties had spent months working on a compromise that would limit irregular border crossings. The negotiations were long and tough. But they came to an agreement – a success, or so it seemed.
