Republicans about Biden trip to Ukraine: 'Incredibly insulting'
Other Republicans see that Biden gave importance to Ukraine's defense rather than domestic issues that the US is facing like immigration.
Republican members of the US House of Representatives took to Twitter on Monday to call out President Joe Biden's surprise trip to Ukraine to showcase his support for the Ukrainian forces.
This is Biden's first trip to the country since the war started on February 24, 2022. Air raid sirens rang out across Kiev as both Presidents met.
According to a CNN report, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene called Biden's trip "incredibly humiliating" that displayed "America's" policy.
Rep. Green expressed her views in a tweet that saw the president 'choose Ukraine over America.'

Today on our President’s Day, Joe Biden, the President of the United States chose Ukraine over America, while forcing the American people to pay for Ukraine’s government and war.

"It's amazing that President Biden showed up in Ukraine to make sure their borders are safe, but he can't do the same for America," Rep. Scott Perry, Republican of Pennsylvania, tweeted.
Breathtaking that President Biden can show up in Ukraine to ensure their border is secure, but can’t do the same for America.— RepScottPerry (@RepScottPerry) February 20, 2023
North Carolina Republican Rep. Greg Murphy added his two cents on the social media platform as well. "It took two years for Joe Biden to visit his war zone on our southern border, but then he goes to see another war zone he created in Ukraine."

During his trip, Biden announced a new $450 million military aid package that Ukraine would be receiving soon. The new military support entails a shipment of artillery ammunition, anti-tank systems, and air surveillance radars. The President underlined that his trip's objective is to prove that his administration is still adamant on supporting Ukraine.
The visit came as China was bashing US claims of it supplying Russia with aid for the war in Ukraine.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that China was considering the provision of arms to Russia in the midst of the Ukraine war, warning that arms supplies from Beijing to Washington would "cause a serious problem."
