Joe Biden may be a dishonest hack, but he does occasionally speak the truth by mistake.
Biden just told the American public that there will be food shortages soon due to the the sanctions on Russia.
While addressing the press at the recent NATO summit on Thursday, Biden had this to say about food shortages:
“With regard to food shortage, yes, we did talk about food shortages, and it’s going to be real.”
This statement directly contradicted one made on Monday by Jen Psaki.
Psaki was asked if we should expect any shortages here in the U.S. due to the Russia/Ukraine conflict, and this was her response:
“We’re not expecting a food shortage here at home,” Psaki assured the press.
Two years ago Biden claimed that there was no such thing as a food shortage in America, instead proclaiming:
“We don’t have a food shortage problem. We have a leadership problem.”
So which is it?

Newsmax has more on Biden’s food shortage claim:
President Joe Biden warned on Thursday at the NATO summit in Brussels that a food shortage is imminent following the effect of sanctions levied against Russia coming into effect.
The statement contradicts comments from his press secretary, Jen Psaki, who stated on Monday that “we’re not expecting a food shortage here at home.”
“With regard to food shortage, yes, we did talk about food shortages, and it’s going to be real,” Biden said while taking questions from the press.

This line of messaging is a stark contrast to a claim he made in 2020:
We don't have a food shortage problem — we have a leadership problem. pic.twitter.com/eFpJ8PGHGM

Fox News has more on Biden’s warning:
President Biden said Thursday that a food shortage is “gonna be real” following the sanctions that were placed on Russia by the U.S. government as a result of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion into Ukraine.
“With regard to food shortage, yes we did talk about food shortages, and it’s gonna be real,” Biden said during a press conference at a NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium, following a meeting with other world leaders.
“The price of the sanctions is not just imposed upon Russia,” he added. “It’s imposed upon an awful lot of countries as well, including European countries and our country as well.”
Biden said “Russia and Ukraine have been the breadbasket of Europe in terms of wheat” and insisted that he and other leaders had a “long discussion in the G7” about the need to “increase and disseminate” food production.
Joe Biden finally admitted that US sanctions are going to cause world wide famines, which I’ve been saying and is also why I voted NO to sanctions.
Sanctions won’t stop the war.
Just wait until Russia, India, and others start trading on China’s DIGITAL Yuan.
It will be bad.

Soooo… Biden says the sanctions on Russia weren’t meant to deter Putin in anyway but the price of the sanctions will cause a “real” global food shortage for everyone else as a result. 🤔 pic.twitter.com/EGpv1CE46V

Biden sends another billion dollars to the Ukraine and tells Americans to expect a food shortage in the near future.
Does anyone think the Biden family or Mr. Putin are going to miss a meal? Or will they be eating prime rib while you are searching store shelves for dry beans?

Great economic collapse of 2022 is developing in front of you
1. Food crisis/fertiliser shortage
2. Energy crisis
3. Chip shortage will continue with shortage of neon gas (>70% from 🇺🇦)
4. Raw minerals disruption ripple effect (shortage of everything)
