Washington, DC – House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCaul joined Martha Raddatz on ABC’s “This Week” to discuss President Biden’s first foreign trip. McCaul highlighted his concerns with the president’s upcoming summit with Putin and stressed the need for substantive action to hold Putin accountable.

“The price for admission to this seat was way too high. For instance, Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The president waived, in the ‘national interest’ Nord Stream 2 [sanctions] – which will be Putin’s pipeline going into Europe – so our European partners will be dependent on Russian energy. I do not think that is in the United States national interest.”
