Without A Weak President

No one will deal with a “weak” american president on foreign policy in the future, as was expected prior to the midterm elections. However, the republicans’ victory in the house of representatives will not be without consequence

The elections for the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate have not yet provided a final answer as to what positions have been achieved by the two parties and the two rival competitors for the new presidential mandate, President Biden and former President Trump. However, it is quite certain that they passed much more successfully for the Democratic Party and President Biden than anyone had previously expected. The Democrats retained control of the Senate, while the defeat they sustained in the House of Representatives is not even remotely spectacular, though the final results are still being awaited. And therefore no one will deal with a “weak” American president on foreign policy in the future either, as was expected prior to the midterm elections.

Nevertheless, the Republicans’ victory in the House of Representatives will not be without consequence. It is certain that aid to Ukraine will not be approved automatically, as it was in the Congress with a Democratic majority. Republicans, however, will not easily succeed in bringing into question Biden’s Ukraine policy. Ukraine is also a divisive issue among Republicans. Trump’s followers, who have a strong urge to contest everything proposed by the current president, also call into question the generous aid to Ukraine. House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy has already warned that members of his caucus are starting to question the funding that Washington has been sending to Ukraine. “Ukraine is important, but at the same time it can’t be the only thing they do and it can’t be a blank cheque,” he said.

The administration’s efforts to persuade both sides to end the war and the slow approach to negotiations are already noticeable, since america does not see dealing with the war in Ukraine as being in its long-term interest

Another school of thought believes that “bipartisan agreement” should be reached on this issue and that there should be no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Trump’s former vice president, Mike Pence, urged Republicans to continue supporting Ukraine, saying “there can be no place in the conservative movement for apologists for Russian President Vladimir Putin,” in a speech he gave for influential conservative group the Heritage Foundation.

Just a day later, the foundation’s president, Kevin Roberts, issued a statement saying: “Heritage will vigorously oppose the big spenders in Washington who are trying to pass another Ukrainian aid package without debate, clear strategy, targeted funding and spending results.”

Democrats, whose control of Congress is guaranteed until the end of the year, have seen an apparent erosion of the will to support Kiev. That’s why it has been announced that they could insist on another large infusion of military aid at the end of the year, with the intention of guaranteeing the supply of weapons and equipment to Ukrainians over the coming months. The administration’s efforts to persuade both sides to end the war and the slow approach to negotiations are already noticeable, since America does not see dealing with this war as being in its long-term interest.
