Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) praised former President Donald Trump over the weekend for throwing his support behind House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) and the House spending package that helps fund Ukraine’s war against Russia.

The House took separate votes late last week on each aid proposal with $60 billion allocated for Ukraine, about $17 billion for Israel, $9 billion for humanitarian aid, and $8 billion to support Taiwan. Another bill that could ban TikTok if the company is not divested from Chinese control was also passed.

“This idea, give up on Ukraine makes the world safer, if you pull the plug on Ukraine because you don’t have enough capability, there goes Taiwan,” Graham said during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

“Ukrainians are fighting like tigers. This aid package has a loan component to it,” he continued. “This would not have passed without Donald Trump. I want to thank the House Speaker and Hakeem Jeffries working together in a bipartisan fashion, to give weapons to Ukraine to fight a fight that matters to us.”

He added, “And President Trump has created a loan component to this package that gives us leverage down the road. So this idea that we can’t help Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan at the same time, I reject that. I reject it totally.”
