White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed Wednesday that President Biden and his administration ‘saved Christmas’ as supply chain problems continue and inflation soars.
“As the New York Times said today, Christmas gifts are arriving on time this year,” Psaki said following Biden’s meeting with business leaders to address supply chain disruptions. “Good news. We’ve saved Christmas, and that is because President Biden recognized this challenge early.”
In working to address the shipping issues, Psaki said Biden “acted as an honest broker to bring key stakeholders together” and placed “focus on addressing practical problems across the global supply chain.”
The Biden administration released a “fact sheet” Wednesday ahead of the meeting that touted what it called the strongest economic growth of any president in his first year in a half century, outlining the “aggressive action to lower the price of goods and gasoline for Americans.”
