Biden Drops Big Bank While Visiting South Korea

President Joe Biden pushed through the massive $40 billion bill in aid to Ukraine Saturday. The president signed the emergency appropriations bill while still in South Korea.

The bill passed in the Senate on Thursday after Biden had departed for his trip to Asia. with overwhelming bi-partisan support. Only 11 Senate Republicans voted against the bill which sets aside billions for military and security support as Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine.

The U.S. has agreed to supply approximately $54 billion in military and humanitarian aid to counter Putin’s aggression in Ukraine.

“I applaud the Congress for sending a clear bipartisan message to the world that the people of the United States stand together with the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their democracy and freedom,” Biden said in a statement. “The resources that I requested will allow us to send even more weapons and ammunition to Ukraine, replenish our own stockpile, and support U.S. troops stationed on NATO territory.”

Biden also signed a bill intended to help Americans get baby formula. The bill “allows the waiver of certain program requirements in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children due to supply chain disruptions or emergency,” according to the White House.
