UK’s Cameron Meets Trump and NOT Biden During US Visit

( David Cameron, the former United Kingdom Prime Minister who now serves as U.K. foreign secretary, visited with former president Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago home on April 8. Cameron’s visit with Trump surprised many in the media but he downplayed any controversy by saying it’s “standard practice” to meet with an opposition candidate.

Cameron met with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken the following day to discuss the purpose of his trip, which was about more funding for Ukraine. Cameron is of the belief that Russian President Vladimir Putin is advancing on Europe in much the same way Hitler did prior to World War II. Cameron is calling for increased pressure on House Speaker Mike Johnson to end the stalemate and get Ukraine the $60 billion Joe Biden has been asking for.

Johnson is currently under fire from factions within his own party due to what they see as his betraying his promises and his conference. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) recently sent a letter to all her Republican House colleagues that took aim at Johnson, saying he broke all seven promises he made after becoming Speaker. Greene has been adamantly opposed to further Ukraine funding.

Greene has also been calling for an audit to determine where the funds already given have gone. Recently, the Biden administration begrudgingly admitted they undercounted $14 billion, making the truer total already sent to Ukraine, $129 billion. Despite the U.S. giving the nation more money than any other ally by a large margin, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is alleging that the U.S. government has been infiltrated by Russian influence. He believes that is the reason for the delay in receiving more funds. Zelenskyy has also tendered an invitation for Donald Trump to visit the nation in hopes that Trump will support more aid.

Trump has in the past said he would have the war ended within “24 hours.” Speaker Johnson has pivoted in recent weeks and declared funding Ukraine is now a top priority for him. He’s likely to use Democrat votes, as has been his pattern to secure the aid package. Once secured, the package would easily get through the Senate approval process as both Senate party leaders fully support more money for Ukraine.
