On Saturday, the Biden administration announced the approval of $350 million in military aid for Ukraine to help ward off the Russian invasion.

U.S. Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) said he does not see that as a sufficient response during an interview with Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show" on Monday.

Carl said it could take a month for the $350 million in aid to arrive in Ukraine, and that, according to the freshman congressman, is indicative of President Joe Biden's weakness. 

"With Russia, since World War II we haven't seen an advancement like this," he said. "It's playing out and I think the Ukraine people are doing an incredible job defending their country, God bless them. But I'm still not in the mood to send troops on the ground.

"The President is talking about another $350 million in support and aid," Carl continued. "That's great a month from now when it gets there. But it is no good today. Again, we should have done that a month ago. We've got a president up here that does not know how to play offense. All he stays on is defense. It's not a good scenario."
