Where are the Republican presidential candidates of 2024 on Ukraine?
The field of Republicans running for president or making moves to enter the race is divided during the war in Ukraine. Some, including former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, have suggested that additional aid to Ukraine is not a top strategic priority for the United States. Others, including Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the United Nations in the Trump administration, argue that supporting Ukraine is a vital US interest.
The disagreement between these Republicans stands as a potential longer-term debate in the contest as the field of candidates takes shape. Here’s where the GOP’s declared and potential presidential candidates stand, starting with the polling leaders (Trump and DeSantis, the latter a potential candidate), as well as declared Trump opponents (Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy) and others. possible candidates (Asa Hutchinson, Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, Tim Scott and Chris Sununu.)
