President Biden Urges the House to Take Up Ukraine, Israel Aid Package

President Biden urged House Republicans to “immediately” take up a $95 billion foreign aid bill that includes assistance to Ukraine and Israel after the Senate passed the measure early Tuesday, saying that “there’s no question” that it would pass if brought to the House floor.

“I call on the speaker to let the full House speak its mind and not allow a minority of the most extreme voices in the House to block this bill even from being voted on,” the president said in remarks at the White House, which came hours after the Senate’s 70-29 vote to approve the measure. “This is a critical act for the House to move.”

Mr. Biden said the Senate “came together to send a message of unity to the world,” adding that “it’s time for the House Republicans to do the same thing, to pass this bill immediately.”
