VIDEO: MTG Slams Speaker Johnson

Marjorie Taylor Greene

( – GOP US Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has lashed out against House Speaker Mike Johnson of Louisiana, also a Republican, and other Congress members for their support and advancement of a substantial foreign aid package aimed at Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

Greene, known for her opposition to additional financial aid for Ukraine, openly displayed her frustration with Johnson—a colleague she previously targeted with a motion to vacate his position last month, The Hill notes in a report.

She was particularly reactive to a post by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on the social media platform X.

In his post, Zelensky extended his gratitude towards the House Speaker for his role in the approval of the aid, claiming that Johnson’s decision was pivotal in “keeping history on the right track” after the vote in the House of Representatives.

The congresswoman from Georgia did not hold back in her criticism of Johnson for his role in passing a foreign aid bill that garnered significant support from Democrat representatives.

She branded Johnson as a “traitor” to both the Republican conference and the nation at large.

“Zelensky thanks Speaker Mike Johnson (D-Ukraine) for sending $61 BILLION of your hard-earned tax dollars to fuel a foreign war. Johnson once again passed a bill with the help of Democrats while the majority of the Republican majority voted against it. Not only is Mike Johnson a traitor to our conference, he’s a traitor to our country,” MTG asserted in an X post.

After extensive debates that lasted for months, the House approved a $95 billion foreign aid package. This package allocates approximately $61 billion to Ukraine, $26 billion to Israel for both military humanitarian assistance in conflict-affected zones like the Gaza Strip, and $8 billion for Taiwan and the Indo-Pacific area.

The bill also includes a series of national security initiatives which also contemplate a potential prohibition of the social media application TikTok, which is owned by Communist China.

Although Greene has rallied support for her motion to remove Johnson from his position as Speaker, with endorsements from Representatives Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Paul Gosar of Arizona, she has yet to specify a timeline for initiating a vote on this matter.

The challenge to Johnson’s position has become more complex following the endorsement of his leadership by former President Donald Trump at a press conference in Florida the previous week.

Greene also blasted fellow Republicans who opposed her amendment aimed at withdrawing funding for Ukraine, which has been fending off a military invasion by Putin’s Russia for over two years now.
