McCarthy: Ukraine main issue with funding bill

United States House Speaker Kevin McCarthy called on the Senate to leave the aid allocated to Ukraine from the stopgap bill it is working on if it wants to prevent a government shutdown.

"I think if we had a clean one without Ukraine on it, we could probably be able to move that through. I think if the Senate puts Ukraine on there and focuses on Ukraine over America, I think — I think that could cause real problems," McCarthy told CNN. He added he still believes a shutdown can be avoided.

The House of Representatives previously failed to approve McCarthy's stopgap bill proposal.
