Tuberville urges diplomacy to end war in Ukraine

Sen. Tommy Tuberville called for negotiation and diplomacy to end the war in Ukraine during an interview with Fox Business’ Larry Kudlow.

“We need to get this over with for the American people, and for the Ukrainians and the Russians,” said Tuberville (R-Auburn). “This needs to be over, but nobody wants to talk about it.”

The senator told Kudlow that the endless flow of money to Ukraine is a huge mistake and that the people authorizing it have no real solutions on how to end the conflict.

“People in Washington D.C. after we’ve already given them (Ukrainians) $120 billion they don’t know how to get out of this. So what are we going to do? We are going to double down,” Tuberville said. “We are going to send them 60 billion more dollars of taxpayers’ money, by the way that we don’t have.”

Tuberville referenced a recent interview between former Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Russian President Vladimir Putin that he says shows the Russian leader is open to peace.

 

Tuberville also spoke on the Senate floor this week regarding the lack of negotiations.

“We have yet to see any diplomatic efforts from this administration,” he said. “Joe Biden’s idea of diplomacy is sending Antony Blinken to Israel to tell Israel to slow down the war in Gaza. That’s not diplomacy.

“We need some real diplomacy in Ukraine.”
