White House Blames Americans for the Supply Chain Crisis

‘We are attacking and addressing the supply chain issues even with the increased volume which is the root cause’


PSAKI: "Well, I think our message is that, one, what’s happening right now, and I wish I had the chart but we’ll give it to all of you afterwards, is that so many people across the country are purchasing more goods online. Maybe some of it is from habits that developed during the pandemic when people weren’t leaving their homes. Some of it is because we’ve seen in economic recovery that has been underway for the last nine months, where five million more people are working, the unemployment rate has been cut in half, and that is leading to a massive increase in volume. That’s what’s happening at ports, but what we would tell people is we are addressing and attacking the supply chain issues, even with the increased volume, which is the root cause here."
