Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said in February that there is no time limit on America's support of Ukraine, a report revealed on Monday.
The comments were shared in a report by Politico that addressed Republican concerns with McConnell's Ukraine support.

"That’s obviously a person who doesn’t know what they’re talking about," McConnell said in the report, responding to a Biden official's statement.
"So let me just tell you what the people who are actually elected to office and actually make the decisions about how long America is committed to this thing: Russia has to lose in Ukraine, and we can’t put a time limit on it," he added.

The report comes out as even CNN discovers that the majority of Americans are now opposed to more taxpayer funding to Ukraine.
"Overall, 55% say the US Congress should not authorize additional funding to support Ukraine vs. 45% who say Congress should authorize such funding," the outlet reported earlier this month.
"And 51% say that the US has already done enough to help Ukraine while 48% say it should do more. A poll conducted in the early days of the Russian invasion in late February 2022 found 62% who felt the US should have been doing more," it added.
The problem adds to McConnell's growing issues, including recent health problems that have led to more people calling for his resignation.
The senator, now in his 80s, has vowed not to leave his role but has left questions about his political future.
The Ukraine issue shows that it's more than his health that concerns many conservatives who have grown tired of his support of spending taxpayer funds on international conflict.
