US Senate Passes $95 Billion Foreign Aid Package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan

WASHINGTON D.C. ( – The US Senate has approved a $95 billion foreign aid package aimed at providing crucial support to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. This decision comes after months of deliberation and negotiation among lawmakers.

The bipartisan vote of 79-18 resulted in the passage of the package, which combined four bills previously endorsed by the US House. Of the total amount, nearly $61 billion is allocated for Ukraine, over $26 billion for Israel, and more than $8 billion for countries in the Indo-Pacific region.

Notably, the aid package includes a provision concerning TikTok, stipulating that the video-sharing platform could face a ban from American app stores unless its parent company, ByteDance, sells it within nine months.

The funding received support from 46 Democrats, 31 Republicans, and 2 independents. However, opposition came from two Democrats, 15 Republicans, and one independent. Three GOP senators, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Tim Scott of South Carolina, and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, abstained from voting.

This significant move underscores the United States’ commitment to providing assistance to its allies and addressing strategic concerns in key regions.
