WATCH: Schumer Threatens To Send American Troops To Ukraine Unless Republicans Pass Border Bill


Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has a message for Republicans: give me billions of dollars now, or else I will send Americans to die in war.

On Monday, Schumer went on MSNBC for an interview, where he claimed that Americans will die fighting alongside Ukraine in Russia if Republicans do not pass the highly-controversial $118 billion ‘border bill’ that also includes billions in foreign aid.

“We’re at a turning point in America. This bill is crucial and history will look back on it and say did America fail itself,” said Schumer, “If we don’t aid Ukraine, Putin will be walk all over Ukraine, we will lose the war and we could be fighting in eastern Europe and a NATO ally in a few years. Americans won’t like that.”

Keep in mind that Ukraine is not a part of NATO, and American troops are not obliged to protect them.

The bipartisan border bill that Schumer wants passed so badly he is threatening to send U.S. troops to fight Russia over is currently stalled in Congress.

Of a whopping $118.28 billion total, $60 billion in funds is allocated to Ukrainian aid.

The bill is scheduled to be voted on by the Senate on Wednesday:

The bill in question is the same one that numerous Republicans and President Trump himself have criticized.

Border Bill Unveiled, President Trump RESPONDS!

In an epic response to Schumer's threat, Republican House Rep. Anna Paulina Luna clapped back:

Reuters has more details on the billion-dollar package:

The U.S. Senate on Sunday unveiled a $118 billion bipartisan border security bill that would also provide aid to Ukraine and Israel, but it promptly slammed into opposition from the House of Representatives.
"I urge Congress to come together and swiftly pass this bipartisan agreement," President Joe Biden said, also praising the migration measures in the bill, which took months to negotiate.
However, House of Representatives Speaker Mike Johnson declared it "dead on arrival" if it reaches his chamber.
"This bill is even worse than we expected, and won’t come close to ending the border catastrophe the president has created," he said in a statement on X, formerly called Twitter.
The Democratic and Republican Senate backers of the wide-ranging U.S. border security and foreign military aid bill pledged to push ahead, despite opposition by Donald Trump as well.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he would take steps to hold an initial vote on the bill on Wednesday.
NBC News added:

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday expressed optimism over a bipartisan bill that seeks to impose stricter immigration and asylum laws, saying he believes it will pass the chamber despite opposition from hard-right Republicans.

“I’m confident — hopeful is the right word,” Schumer said in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked about the bill’s chances of passing in the Senate. “This is hard. And our Republican senators — we need a bunch of them — are under a lot of pressure from right-wing Trump part of the party.”

Senators released the text of the bipartisan bill Sunday night after months of negotiations. The $118 billion bill comes amid record-high crossings at the southern border and also includes foreign aid to Israel, Ukraine and Taiwan. Republicans have said they would only support aid to those countries on the condition that it is paired with new policies restricting U.S. immigration.

The bipartisan package faces opposition from House Republican leadership and other conservatives, including several members of the House Freedom Caucus. Shortly after senators released the text of the bill, Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., said in a Sunday night post to X that “it will be dead on arrival” if it reaches the House.
