Mr. Schumer talked about Ukraine, a faraway place. He said both Democrats and Republicans agree to help them. Imagine if you share your toys with a friend – it’s like that, but with countries helping each other.
The Border Situation
But wait! Some leaders want to talk about a place called the “border” first. It’s like a special line on a map. Mr. Schumer and his friends say, “Let’s help Ukraine and fix the border together.” Teamwork is important!
