Behind the Poll
President Joe Biden just released a new video in which he claims to have already solved the supply chain crisis “months” ago. He then reassures Americans that they’ll be able to get the items and gifts they want for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Here’s the transcription, provided by The Gateway Pundit:
I know a lot of Americans are worried whether or not there’s gonna be enough stock on the shelves for Thanksgiving and for Christmas. Whether you’ll be able to get what you need because there’s, was a short supply last year because of COVID and a range of other things. But, you know, I just got off the phone with the largest retailers in America and here’s what they came up with. They all told me that things are really moving along. One of the things I did several months ago was speed up the operation of the ports on the West Coast that have forty percent of all the goods that come through the Pacific Ocean. And we’ve moved it way, way along in terms of getting more products in and letting people know that they’re gonna be available. We’ve also moved how to get them from the ports to the stores, from the stores to your doors and uh, the bottom line is all the folks I spoke with–not just the East Coast, but the West Coast–they just all are confident that things are gonna be much different Thanksgiving and a much different Christmas this year. And so, the expectation is it’s not gonna be like this time last year. You’re gonna be able to get to the store, get to your pla…, get to the outlets you’re looking for, get the products you need, you gifts that you want. That’s what we’ve been working on.
And that’s why when I passed this thing called the Infrastructure Bill, that has a lot of money in it to improve our ports, improve our highways, improve our transportation systems, bring down costs and also create good jobs. So that’s what this is all about: Getting back to normal, getting back to a place where we lead the world again in our infrastructure and we lead the world again in having, continuing to be the fastest growing economy in the world.
