Biden signs Ukraine aid, TikTok ban package after Republican battle

President Joe Biden signed a significant bill into law, providing substantial aid to Ukraine, marking a bipartisan achievement amid ongoing political divisions. The legislation allocates $61 billion in aid to Ukraine, $26 billion for Israel, and $1 billion for humanitarian assistance to Gaza. Immediate impact was noted, with $1 billion worth of weapons supplies approved for Ukraine, including vehicles, air defense munitions, and anti-tank weapons. The U.S. also confirmed Ukraine’s use of long-range ballistic missiles provided covertly by the U.S. The aid package faced opposition, notably from former President Donald Trump and some Republicans, but Speaker Mike Johnson played a key role in breaking the deadlock. Additionally, Biden signed a bill linked to the aid legislation, threatening to ban TikTok in the U.S. if its Chinese owner, ByteDance, fails to divest the app within the specified timeframe.
