Biden appears to confuse NATO with Ukraine in calling for Congress members to pass funding bill | 17 Feb 2024 | Joe Biden on Saturday appeared to mix up NATO with Ukraine when calling on House members to come back to Washington, D.C., to vote on a bill that would fund Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. "The idea that we’re going to walk away from Ukraine, the idea that we’re going to begin to let NATO split is totally against the interests of the United States of America..." Biden told reports in Delaware Saturday. "So it’s about time we make sure Congress come home and pass the legislation funding NATO." The Senate this week passed the bipartisan bill that would give $95.3 million in funding to the three allies for defense purposes, but the House of Representatives is on a two-week break and House Speaker Mike Johnson has said the House won't "rush" to pass it.
