On Monday, the Georgia congresswoman took to social media to float her idea of presenting Russian President Vladimir Putin with a "peace treaty" instead of providing Ukraine with more funding as the two remain at war.

"With Zelenskyy in town and Ukraine money running dry, why doesn't anyone in Washington talk about a peace treaty with Russia??" she shared, further explaining it would be "A deal with Putin promising he will not continue any further invasions."

X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, attached a context note to her bizarre post, pointing out Russia's pattern of violating agreements with Ukraine.

Despite this, Greene echoed her sentiment in another post shared early Tuesday morning, where she accused Zelensky of "begging" for money and said "warmongering Washington wants to give him limitless American dollars" to "slaughter an entire generation of young Ukrainian men."

House Republicans, with Greene being the most vocal, have voted against legislation to send more aid, arguing that funding should be put into combating domestic immigration issues.

Zelensky is scheduled to visit DC on Tuesday to speak with President Joe Biden and members of congress, most notably House Speaker Mike Johnson.
