President Joe Biden signed a $95 billion foreign aid package today – complete with funding for Israel, Ukraine, and Taiwan. It passed the Senate yesterday 79 to 18 with backing from both party leaders.

Beyond foreign aid, the package also contains a measure that will force the sale of TikTok by its Chinese owner, ByteDance, or else face a ban in the US. Biden welcomed the bill’s passage, praising Congress for “answering history’s call at this critical inflection point.”
