Democrat Schumer: Give me money or else your sons will die in war.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Monday threatened to send US troops to fight Russia unless Republicans agree to his $100 billion world aid bill currently stalled in Congress.
The Senate’s $118.28 billion national security supplemental package allocates $60 billion in military aid to Ukraine.
Schumer said the first vote on the bill is scheduled for Wednesday.
In the coming days, the Senate must act decisively on this emergency national security supplemental funding.

Of course, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is on board with this bill.
Only $20.23 billion was allocated to secure the US border amid an unprecedented invasion of military-age males from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and China.

Schumer told “Morning Joe’s” Mika Brzezinski that American men will die in war if Republicans don’t agree to his $100 billion bill.
“We’re at a turning point in America. This bill is crucial and history will look back on it and say did America fail itself,” Schumer said.
“If we don’t aid Ukraine, Putin will be walk all over Ukraine, we will lose the war and we could be fighting in eastern Europe and a NATO ally in a few years. Americans won’t like that,” Schumer said.
Ukraine is NOT a member of NATO. Ukraine does not have the protection of US troops.
