Biden commits to supporting Ukraine for 10 years as Americans struggle to afford food

As Americans struggle to put food on the table and pay their bills, Joe Biden and Ukrainian President Zelenskyy signed a 10-year bilateral security agreement on Thursday "aimed at bolstering Ukraine's defense against Russian invaders and getting Ukraine closer to NATO membership."

Reuters reports, "The deal, signed on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Italy, aims to commit future U.S. administrations to support Ukraine, even if former President Donald Trump wins November’s election, officials said."

The news drove outrage among Americans, but many were not surprised by the move.

According to the Council on Foreign Relations, as of May 9, 2024, the U.S. has given $175 billion to Ukraine.

"It’s important to note that of the $175 billion total, only $107 billion directly aids the government of Ukraine. Most of the remainder is funding various U.S. activities associated with the war in Ukraine, and a small portion supports other affected countries in the region."

Meanwhile, "As of October 2023, 53.7% of American adults were able to access and afford the food they wanted all the time. One out of every eight American adults is struggling to afford enough food."

The chips are falling into place to create a much broader picture. As the 2024 Election draws near, the question becomes: will you vote for Joe Biden the man that puts other nations' interests first, or will you vote for Donald J. Trump, the man who puts money back in your pocket?
