Senator Tommy Tuberville said Monday that he doesn’t believe Ukraine will ever win the war against Russia.

“At the end of the day, it’s a high school team playing a college team,” the Alaska Republican told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Monday night.

‘They can’t win. We can throw all the money we want, but unless we send NATO and our troops, which we’re not going to do, if I have anything to do with it, then there’s no chance.

That’s why Tuberville said he didn’t back a single dollar going to the Eastern European nation.

“I didn’t vote for a dime to send Ukraine,” Tuberville told Ingraham. “I am for Ukraine. Russia should never have done this. I was in Ukraine three months with President (Volodymyr) Zelensky before this started. They were already fighting up to this point.

The senator’s comments come as a funding battle brews between Congress and President Biden as the White House prepares to request billions more to be sent to Ukraine.

It also comes as Tuberville has remained steadfast in blocking Pentagon promotions from moving forward on Department of Defense policy that financially helps service members if they have to leave the state to have abortions.

So far, the senator has blocked some 300 promotions that must be confirmed by the Senate.

The White House is expected to formally ask Congress for potentially more than $10 billion in additional military and humanitarian aid for the country amid Ukraine’s lackluster counteroffensive and Russia’s continued bombardment of Russia.

A definitive figure has not been finalized and moving additional funds will be an uphill battle in the divided Congress. The United States has already provided more than $60 billion for the war.

Last month, some 70 House Republicans voted to remove funding for Ukraine from the annual defense spending bill – the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has said he has no intention of taking on additional defense spending that would breach the $886 billion defense cap agreed to in the debt limitation agreement. that he negotiated with Biden.

Tuberville’s comments came in response to a CNN poll that found 55% of Americans don’t think Congress should authorize more money for Ukraine. A whopping 8 in 10 Americans said they fear the war will go on unresolved for a long time.

More than 62,000 people have lost their lives since the war began in February 2021 and some 17 million have been displaced from their homes.
