Buttigieg Claims Supply Chain Crisis Because of Biden's 'Success' with Economy
'It represents a policy success'
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has claimed the current supply chain crisis in the U.S is because Joe Biden “successfully brought this economy out of the teeth of the recession."
During an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Buttigieg said the supply chain issues show that “the demand is there, which is great news."
"It represents a policy success. Now we’ve got to make sure the supply chains are there to support it," he said.
“Remember, you can’t talk about supply without talking about demand. Part of the reason we are where we are is that the president successfully brought this economy out of the teeth of the recession, people are buying more than ever before.
"We’re seeing record goods coming through our ports."
"The demand is there, which is great news," he continued.
"It represents a policy success."
"Now we’ve got to make sure the supply chains are there to support it.”
“What I’m saying is that we are better off because the economy is growing, and the economy is growing thanks to the leadership of this president.”
Neon Nettle reported Buttigieg has been on paid leave since mid-August to "spend time with his husband."
Despite reports of looming Christmas shortages, the former South Bend mayor has been oddly absent from the media and barely commented to the press about the mounting emergency.
However, after weeks of questions about Buttigieg’s whereabouts, Politico’s West Wing Playbook finally confirmed on Thursday that the transportation sec. has been “lying low.”
Biden himself seemed oblivious to the crisis after he touted 'economic recovery' despite 4.3 million workers quitting their jobs, soaring inflation, and empty shelves.
Frustrated shoppers took to Twitter to blast Joe Biden as the hashtag #EmptyShelvesJoe began trending.
“Just went food shopping…again…thanks #EmptyShelvesJoe I really love having to go every day now in order to find what used to take one trip,” one account wrote, along with a photo of near-vacant shelves at a grocery store.
