The Biden White House is now warning of food shortages in certain parts of the world because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
This news comes on top of rising inflation and the ongoing supply chain crisis.
It’s just another reminder that things are going to get worse before they get better, as long as Joe Biden is president.

White House Warns of Global Food Shortages After Ukraine Invasion
The White House confirmed Monday they expect certain parts of the world to suffer a food shortage as an effect of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
“We do anticipate that higher energy fertilizer, wheat, and corn prices could impact the price of growing and purchasing critical food supplies for countries around the world,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday.
She said food shortages were not expected to hit the United States, but rather countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia.
Reports have pointed out that both Ukraine and Russia produce a significant portion of the world’s wheat, corn, and barley as well as energy and fertilizer.
Despite Psaki’s assurance that the United States would not suffer a food shortage, the cost of fertilizer, grain, and fuel could have a significant impact on food prices.
This is getting a little scary.
Fertilizer shortage, which could lead to a food shortage, is on the White House radar

I still cannot believe the Democrats thought this pathetic clown could be trusted not to destroy the country. Biden's our worst nightmare! But for Democrats he's poison! 🙄 https://t.co/jp0MJOqqCH

What happens if the White House is wrong and America is one of the affected places?
We haven’t seen anything like that in the United States since the Great Depression.
