President Biden, in a high-profile speech Tuesday at the United Nations, reiterated his appeal to world leaders to do all they can to help Ukraine repel Russia’s invasion, an exhortation that comes amid signs of flagging support in the United States and abroad for further major aid packages to Kyiv.

Biden also told the U.N. General Assembly that the United States welcomes and even needs alliances with its partners. His declaration that “no nation can meet the challenges of today alone” created a pointed contrast with the “America First” message that Donald Trump, his predecessor and potential successor, delivered to the U.N. during his presidency.

But it was on Ukraine that Biden was the most forceful. He warned other nations that if they pull back their support, it could have ripple effects around the world.
