The field of Republicans running for president or making moves toward entering the race is divided over the war in Ukraine. Some, including former president Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, have suggested that further assistance to Ukraine is not a top strategic priority for the United States. Others, including Nikki Haley, a U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in the Trump administration, argue that supporting Ukraine is a vital interest for the United States.
The disagreement among these Republicans is shaping up as a potential longer-term debate in the contest as the candidate field takes shape. Here’s where the declared and potential GOP presidential candidates stand, starting with the polling leaders (Trump and DeSantis, the latter a potential candidate), as well as Trump’s declared opponents (Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy) and other possible candidates (Asa Hutchinson, Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, Tim Scott and Chris Sununu.)
