Donald Trump on Monday called on Republicans in Congress to oppose the agreement providing a package of 60 billion dollars for kyiv.

“Only an idiot, or a radical left-wing Democrat, would vote for this horrible bill,” he said on his network, Truth Social.

The American Senate unveiled a text on Sunday evening, the result of long months of negotiations, which provides for aid to Ukraine, $14 billion for Israel, and a reform of the American migration system.

“We need a separate bill on the migration issue, it must not be linked to aid to a foreign country in any way,” said the former president, presidential candidate of november.

To be adopted, this envelope must be approved in the Senate, then in the House of Representatives. This is where things get complicated: its president, the "speaker" Mike Johnson, a loyalist of Donald Trump, declared on Sunday that as it stands, everyone votes in his room on new funding for aid to Ukraine as well as for the strengthening of the border with Mexico was "stillborn".

Without its support, the text cannot, for the moment, go anywhere.
