MTG Condemns Johnson Over Ukraine Aid Vote

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has ramped up her criticisms of House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) after his capitulation on the vote over the latest multi-billion-dollar aid package for Ukraine that taxpayers will fund by either borrowing the money from China or printing it up out of thin air.

Saturday afternoon’s vote has fueled an intensifying debate within the Republican Party. It has positioned Greene at the forefront of the GOP effort to oust the Speaker.

Greene expressed her continuing frustration in a scathing rebuke of Johnson and his leadership. “This is a continuous sick business model that the American government continues,” she stated.

The aid package, approved with Johnson’s consent despite a Republican minority in favor, allocates substantial funds for military and economic assistance to Ukraine. It includes billions for advanced weaponry, replenishing U.S. stockpiles, and financial support in the form of loans that could be forgiven. While supported by some for allegedly bolstering U.S. job growth — while serving as a new windfall for the military-industrial complex — Greene and other America First conservatives have criticized these measures as a betrayal of the conservative voting base.

Greene argued that the federal government should focus more on domestic issues, such as securing the U.S. border and supporting Americans struggling with necessities. “Americans are suffering every single day,” she added.

Despite her fervent opposition, Greene’s position has not seen widespread backing from her party — only a handful of Republicans, including Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Paul Gosar (R-AZ) have joined her so far in sponsoring the move to oust Johnson. Their discontent was further exacerbated by images of lawmakers waving Ukrainian flags, which Massie described as “total capitulation with no victory for securing our border.”

In her recent statements, Greene has also criticized Johnson for his stance on other vital issues, including government surveillance and spending, suggesting a pattern of decisions that, in her view, betray Republican values. “This is the third betrayal by Mike Johnson,” she declared, indicating a deepening mistrust between the Speaker and the more conservative members of his party.

Greene’s approach will largely depend on her ability to sway more party members to take a stand in favor of America First initiatives like bringing actual security to the southern border. Meanwhile, it would be an opportune time for President Trump to take a definitive position to promote party unity.
