ICYMI: Marco Rubio Called Out For Jeopardizing Ukrainian President’s Security

During a video call members of Congress held with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy this weekend, Marco Rubio decided to potentially risk Zelenskyy’s security to score points on Twitter. Rubio   tweeted out an image of the call and refused to delete it, despite Ukrainian officials telling members of the call not to share images of the meeting on social media in order to protect Zelenskyy. 

Rubio was widely condemned by leaders on both sides of the aisle for putting his self-serving agenda ahead of America’s allies. See below for highlights from the coverage:
