Senator Pat Toomey says President Joe Biden isn’t doing enough to help Ukraine – CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey said President Joe Biden is not doing enough to help Ukraine.

During a visit to Pittsburgh on Friday, he said Biden is not doing enough to pressure Russia. He added that most Ukrainians are fighting not only for themselves, but also for the United States and the West. They deserve greater support, Toomey said.

“They are asking for the materials they need, the resources they need, and they are asking us to cut off the revenue for (Vladimir) Putin to fund his war machine,” the senator said.

KDKA’s Ken Rice: And we do.

Toomey: No, we are not.

KDKA’s Ken Rice: We do some of that.

Toomey: At the moment, the sanctions we imposed were specifically designed not to affect the sale of oil and gas. That’s huge. And the West still sends him billions of dollars every week.

He said Biden could shut off those revenues with so-called secondary sanctions, telling banks worldwide they can’t do business with the US if they do business with any Russian bank

Toomey, who has opted not to run for re-election after serving two terms in the US Senate, has just two months left to serve in Washington, DC. But he said he’s not retiring.

KDKA’s Ken Rice asked Toomey if he thought there really was a better job out there than being a US Senator.

“There’s a job out there that’s a better fit for me in this next phase of my life,” Toomey said. “I have had the incredible fortune and blessing to represent Pennsylvania in the US Senate. I have absolutely no regrets and I intend to go through the tape here. I’m busier today than ever before.”
