GOP Sen. Bill Hagerty of Tennessee voiced his frustrations with the ongoing economic crises plaguing the U.S. and proved quick to place the blame on the Biden administration during an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures. “

Hagerty addressed the controversial Ukrainian aid package of nearly $40 billion, telling Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that, while he “has nothing against” Ukrainians and hopes to see their country defeat Russia, he is also determined to prioritize the interests of his own people.

“I will be a ‘no’ on the package,” he said, lamenting that, “multiple crises” are erupting across the U.S. and that those issues should be prioritized.
