Biden: American companies will benefit by purchasing weapons if they agree to help Ukraine and Israel

US President Joe Biden said that if Congress agrees to allocate funds to support Ukraine and Israel, these funds will go to American companies by purchasing weapons from them.

The Wall Street Journal quoted Biden as saying: “If Congress approves military aid to Ukraine and Israel, we will not write blank checks. Rather, we will send weapons from our own stocks, and then use the funds allocated by Congress to replenish those stocks by purchasing them from American suppliers.” This includes Patriot missiles made in Arizona, Javelin missiles made in Alabama, and artillery shells made in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Texas.”

He added: "We are investing in the American industrial base, buying American goods made by American workers, supporting jobs in about 40 states, and strengthening our national security. We will help our friends and help ourselves at the same time."

Biden called on the US Congress once again to pass the relevant bill as soon as possible.

Several months ago, the US administration sent a request to Congress for additional allocations in the budget for the fiscal year 2024, which began in the United States on October 1, 2023, primarily to provide assistance to Israel and Ukraine, as well as to “confront China and Russia” in the region. Asia Pacific. In total, the executive branch of the government led by Democrat Biden wants to obtain about $106 billion for these purposes.

The further fate of the request and alternative bills remains unclear. A number of Republicans in the House and Senate have spoken out in recent months against continuing to provide financial support to Kiev.
