The White House has announced that Zelesnky will visit the White House next Thursday.
Additionally, these discussions will be about more funding for the Ukraine conflict.
The people should be furious.
While we continue to suffer through rising inflation, BILLIONS of dollars are funneled into Ukraine.
More from CNN:
US President Joe Biden plans to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky next week around the United Nations General Assembly meetings, according to multiple officials familiar with the plans.
It remained unclear whether the meeting would occur in New York or later in the week at the White House. One source familiar with the matter told CNN that Zelensky is expected to travel to Washington, DC, after his stop in New York.
Biden and Zelensky are both scheduled to address the assembly on Tuesday.
Zelensky is planning to use an in-person appearance at the annual meeting to appeal for more support for Ukraine as it continues to wage a counteroffensive against Russia. Aside from an address to the assembly, he plans several meetings with other world leaders in New York, according to people familiar with the plans.
Among his objectives will be trying to persuade nations that haven’t taken a firm stance against the war to be more forceful in their condemnation of Russia.
Among his meetings will be with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli government announced Thursday.
Zelensky will also visit the US Capitol next Thursday, according to a GOP source familiar, though he will not address a joint session of Congress and is instead expected to meet individually with lawmakers and members of leadership.
Zelensky is meeting Biden in the White House to get more money. There should be a protest. Taking money when people who children burned up the homes gone get 700 per household. How can Zelensky ask for money he has dirt on Biden’s and republicans in senate democrats kickbacks due

Can we get people near the White House to protest the visit of Zelensky?
Biden wants to give him another 24 billion next week.
This madness must stop. https://t.co/4ArwHNahi2

We NEED to protest this.
That money should be going back into our country.
More from Forbes:
Zelensky and Biden last met in Hiroshima, Japan, when the Ukrainian president joined world leaders from the Group of Seven diplomatic forum for their annual summit. This will be the second time he visits the White House. In December, Zelensky made his first trip outside of Ukraine since the war broke out to visit Biden and the White House. Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Zelensky in a surprise visit to Kyiv.
This visit comes amid a funding showdown between Biden and Republicans, who control the House of Representatives. Biden has asked for $24 billion in additional aid to send to Ukraine for its war effort, but many Republicans are skeptical of spending that much money. Republican lawmakers have threatened a government shutdown if Biden and Democrats don’t cut that aid as well as other areas of government spending.
Democrats are the ones who want us to tax the rich and allow the government to have more money to invest in our infrastructure.
So, the government has the money to invest in a foreign country that most Americans couldn’t point to on a map, but they can’t bother to invest in our crumbling infrastructure?
We NEED President Trump back in the White House to restore order.
