(USNewsMag.com) – Victoria Coates, who was President Trump’s deputy adviser on national security, thinks that the US should not pay for the conflict in Ukraine.
Coates remarked on February 28 that the Treasury Department, if it has a role in Ukraine, may help them build a new economy without corruption. She wants to hear why it’s the responsibility of the American tax payer to give money to all Ukrainians.
Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has also stepped in, saying that Biden’s attitude toward finance in Ukraine is untenable. He said he was against the program since the administration’s support for Ukraine lacked a well-defined strategic goal. He went on to say that becoming embroiled in a surrogate war with China or with issues like the Ukrainian border was not to America’s benefit.
On the other hand, Janet Yellen, U.S. Treasury Secretary, said that the United States has a moral obligation to help Ukraine protect its eastern border against attack. Yellen supports Ukraine’s border defense, yet she ignores the assault at the southern U.S. border.
Coates made the argument that the US, and especially its military, shouldn’t shoulder the responsibilities of other nations on their own. According to her, the United States has no business funding Ukraine’s internal affairs. If the United States chooses to play such a role, we should provide Ukraine with the kind of military assistance for which it is known and admired, rather than try to take on the responsibilities and obligations of Ukraine’s social infrastructure.
The senior Heritage Foundation researcher, Coates, said that other nations aren’t doing nearly as much as the United States is in supporting Ukraine. Considering that the French and Germans aren’t providing anything like this kind of help, she thought it was disgusting. This is not the United States’ responsibility. What we’re in now is Europe’s backyard. Europe must take on the major portion of the responsibility of the war in their part of the world.
