Amidst Ukraine Controversy, State Department Approves Missile Sale Discussed on Call
In all the discussion about Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that is essentially bringing American politics to a halt, there is still work to be done. Pelosi and her minions are thrilled to pretend that an injustice was done to precious Biden, worthy of an impeachment probe.
Despite one vague suggestion by Trump for Zelensky to look into past corruption regarding the Bidens, the phone call was meaningful. It was meaningful because President Trump and President Zelensky were discussing the political makeup that could greatly affect the region. By assisting Ukraine in achieving security, the region has a better chance at stability.
Therefore, the majority of the discussion, and arguably the purpose for the Ukraine call, was to discuss the sale of missiles. “This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of Ukraine” announced the Defense Security Cooperation Agency today.
According to the National Review, the sale “would include 150 Raytheon-made Javelin missiles and ten launchers with support equipment” which was brought up by Zelensky on the July 25 call. Additionally, the deal “follows a sale from last year that sent 210 missiles and 37 launchers to Ukraine for $47 million.” However, it is “unrelated to the $391 million in congressionally mandated aid to the country released September 12.”
Democrats have claimed in their impeachment jargon that the mandated aid was held up in being delivered to Ukraine as part of a “quid pro quo” even though the Ukrainians have admitted they were unaware that there was any stall.
