America Last: Biden to Send Maui Less than one-tenth of one percent of what he wants to send Ukraine

President Joe Biden is asking Congress to approve $24 billion more in aid for Ukraine, which would bring the total amount of U.S. taxpayer-funded aid to Ukraine since February 2022 to $135 billion.

In contrast, Biden announced Wednesday that he would send $95 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to aid in rebuilding Maui after the nation’s deadliest fire in over a century, which has claimed more than 115 lives, with hundreds still unaccounted for.

The $95 million is less than one-tenth of one percent of the $135 billion that Biden is seeking to spend on aid to Ukraine in a war that has no end in sight.

The announcement came after Biden offered Maui households affected by the fire a one-time payment of $700 each — less than the $900 each household spends on the Ukraine war, according to a calculation by a budget expert at the Heritage Foundation.

A Maui resident who is leading grassroots relief efforts on the ground told Breitbart News that the $700 amount was “laughable.”

Thousands of Lahaina residents are currently homeless and living in temporary housing. Earlier this week, a Hungarian company sent 60 fold-up homes to Maui, the first batch of 250 it hopes to send by October.

In July, at a NATO summit in Vilnius, Lithuania, Biden boasted that the U.S. has given more money to Ukraine than all the other nations combined.
