Republicans on support for Ukraine

Morning Joe’s Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle sit down with Richard Haass, president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, to discuss the faction within the Republican Party that is against American funding of Ukraine’s war against Russia, following Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky having urged a global front against Russian aggression in a dramatic speech delivered during the UN General Assembly. “It used to be that the Republican Party specifically, Democrats as well, but the Republican Party specifically, would be saying, ‘yes, yes; go get Russia. We’re behind you 100 percent’? Yet now the fracture within the Republican Party leads to a very real possibility that there will be a shutdown or diminution of funding for Ukraine to continue this war,” asks Barnicle. Hear Haass’ response about the shift in the Republican Party on issues of national security and U.S. leadership on the world stage.
