House Speaker Mike Johnson expressed serious doubts about a $95.3 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel, and others, lacking border security measures, amid slow Senate progress. The aid faces further obstacles in the House, where Republicans, influenced by Trump's isolationist policies, show deep skepticism. The package, crucial for military aid and replenishing U.S. stocks, highlights GOP divides on foreign aid and Trump's grip on party foreign policy. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer emphasizes the package's importance for Western democracy and American values.
