Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) made it clear in a recent interview with CNN that he is not in favor of sending more money to Ukraine. He even went as far as saying that if he were to become the speaker of the House of Representatives, he would not allow it. According to Jordan, there are more pressing issues for Americans to worry about, such as the border situation and crime on the streets.

In a letter to House Republicans, Jordan outlined his case for being elected as speaker. He highlighted the importance of passing necessary bills, conducting oversight, and reining in spending. Jordan believes that he has already made significant progress in these areas, particularly with regards to immigration and border enforcement. He also emphasized his commitment to fiscal discipline throughout his career.
"I'm against that," Jim Jordan, a candidate for speaker, says of an aid package for Ukraine, going further than McCarthy.
"The most pressing issue on Americans' mind is not Ukraine — it is the border situation, it's crime on streets."

Jordan urged the Republican conference to come together and keep their promises to the American people. He acknowledged that the challenges facing the nation are significant, but not insurmountable. Jordan believes that by focusing on solutions that improve the country, the party can unite and make a real impact.
It’s worth noting that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) is also vying for the position of speaker. The election for this important role will take place next Wednesday.
It is refreshing to see Rep. Jordan prioritize the concerns of the American people over foreign aid. The border situation and crime on the streets are legitimate issues that need to be addressed urgently. By taking a firm stance against sending more money to Ukraine, Jordan is demonstrating his commitment to fiscal responsibility and putting America first. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the upcoming speaker election and whether other Republicans will follow his lead on this important issue.
