Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said sending aid to countries such as Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan is "not charity, but an investment in cold, hard U.S. interests."

In a Northern Kentucky Tribune opinion column on Wednesday, McConnell made his case for why Congress should come together to support allies in need of military aid.

The Senate last week passed a $95 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel, Gaza, and Taiwan. However, House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., said the chamber will not feel "rushed" to pass the legislation.

Conservative lawmakers say stricter security measures at the southern border amid the current migrant crisis are a higher priority than assistance to foreign nations.
