Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Blasts Rep. Cori Bush for Supporting Aid to Ukraine’s Military
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has taken aim at fellow congresswoman Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) for her support of sending money to Ukraine’s military, which Greene controversially described as “Nazi.”
The exchange began when Bush criticized the celebration of the Fourth of July and the founding of the United States, citing the existence of slavery at the time of independence. In response, Greene accused Bush of hypocrisy, pointing out her support for sending funds to the “Nazi army of Ukraine.”
“Just stop,” Greene tweeted at Bush. “You voted to send $113 Billion to the white people and white Nazi army of Ukraine.”
It is important to note that Greene’s statement appears to label the entire Ukrainian military as Nazis, rather than specific factions, as she and some other conservatives have done in the past. This tweet marks her most significant denunciation of aid to Ukraine to date, although she has consistently criticized it since the Russian invasion in February 2022.
Last week, Greene tweeted about Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, referring to him as having a “Nazi army.” However, it remains unclear whether she was referring to the entire Ukrainian military or specific units.
“Somehow this makes so much sense from the actor wearing army green every day, fully funded by U.S. warmongers, and who just recently canceled elections, controls his state media, and has a Nazi army,” she tweeted, sharing a video of climate activist Greta Thunberg meeting with Zelensky.
Greene’s stance on aid to Ukraine has caused division within the Republican Party, as it contradicts House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and the majority of congressional Republicans who strongly support it.
Last week, Greene co-sponsored Rep. Matt Gaetz’s (R-FL) Ukraine Fatigue Resolution, which calls for an end to all aid to Ukraine and advocates for a peace deal. Other co-sponsors include Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Mary Miller (R-IL), Barry Moore (R-AL), Ralph Norman (R-SC), and Matt Rosendale (R-MT).
