Marjorie Taylor Greene says America needs 'national divorce'

 February 21, 2023

Americans have grown increasingly pessimistic about the future, with an NBC News poll from last month showing that 71% believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.

While there is wide disagreement how over how what to do, one member of Congress recently proposed a stark solution: breaking up. 

"We need a national divorce"

According to the Washington Examiner, Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene put forward the idea of a national divorce as a way to address federal spending and cultural divisions.

The Examiner pointed out how this not the first time Greene has suggested that ideologically opposed sections of the country should go their separate ways.

The Georgia representative expressed a similar sentiment in late 2021, arguing that "a National Divorce scenario" would permit red states to screen those moving in from left-leaning areas.

Divorce call comes as critics say Biden values Ukraine over Ohio

Greene's divorce statement came after she put out another tweet condemning President's Joe Biden's surprise visit to Ukraine on Monday.

Biden has been widely criticized for traveling to Ukraine despite still not having visited East Palestine, Ohio. A train derailed there earlier this month, which resulted in the release of toxic chemicals.

Fox News reported that East Palestine Mayor Trent Conaway called Biden's Ukraine visit "the biggest slap in the face" and slammed the president for "giving away millions of dollars" to Ukraine while neglecting victims in Ohio.

Matt Gaetz says Ukraine "can keep" Biden

"That tells you right now he doesn’t care about us. He can send every agency he wants to, but I found out this morning that he was in Ukraine giving millions of dollars away to people over there and not to us," Conaway told Fox News host Jesse Watters.

Meanwhile, Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz told Fox News, "When our border is in crisis, Joe Biden goes home to nap in Delaware."

"When Ohio burns with toxic chemicals, Biden’s admin says everything is fine," Gaetz continued, adding, "So on Presidents Day, I’m not surprised that Biden is ditching America for Ukraine. He ditched America’s interests since the start of his presidency. They can keep him!"
