Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) invoked a verse from the Bible on Tuesday to justify sending $40 billion in aid to Ukraine as Russia's military invasion continues.
The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the aid package, with 57 Republicans voting against it as they pointed out they barely had any time to read the bill in full.
"Building on robust support already secured by Congress, this package will help Ukraine defend not only its nation but democracy for the world," Pelosi said. "As Putin desperately accelerates his brutality in Ukraine, time is of the essence. This urgent package includes military aid, support for the Ukrainian economy, and humanitarian assistance for food security to address the worldwide hunger crisis stemming from Putin's invasion."
