President to Sign Foreign Aid After Senate Passage

The cloture vote approved assistance to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan and a measure on TikTok divestment.

President Joe Biden indicated he will sign the Senate-passed legislation authorizing $95 billion in foreign assistance to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. A national security measure was also approved that will require Bytedance, a Chinese company, to divest TikTok. The House of Representatives voted to pass the bills on Saturday.

In support of the legislation, President Biden stated, “The need is urgent: for Ukraine, facing unrelenting bombardment from Russia; for Israel, which just faced unprecedented attacks from Iran; for refugees and those impacted by conflicts and natural disasters around the world, including in Gaza, Sudan, and Haiti; and for our partners seeking security and stability in the Indo-Pacific.“

He added, “This critical legislation will make our nation and world more secure as we support our friends who are defending themselves.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for the president and his foreign policy advisors as they seek to support allies around the world.
  • For the leadership in the House and Senate to be prudent as they prioritize legislative actions and determine which bills to bring to a floor vote.
