Senator Rounds express his opinion on the 2020 elections & latest happenings in Ukraine

WASHINGTON, D.C.(KOTA)- The Republican Party has been largely paralyzed regarding former President Trump’s lie the 2020 US election was “stolen” from him.

However, South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds, a fellow Republican who stood against this lie during a recent ABC News appearance, says sometimes the truth comes before party politics.

Rounds acknowledged the 2020 election wasn’t perfect, but.

Rounds advocated for protecting local control of the election process moving forward.

Rounds received pushback from the former President who called him a “jerk” following his comments on the election.

In the bitter cold of an Eastern European winter, troops line the Russian-Ukrainian border waiting on the order to move.

South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds, a member of both the Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees, hears the alarm bells ringing.

Rounds says American support of Ukraine, a nation which has gradually shifted its interests to the West and NATO in the post-Soviet era, should continue.

Rounds said the issue in Ukraine impacts both American lives and American alliances.

President Joe Biden has said he expects Russia would “move in” on Ukraine. Russia, according to some estimates, have amassed 100,000 troops along the border.
