Ex-Walmart CEO: How Biden supply chain is a ‘mess from start to finish’
Former Walmart CEO: Biden supply chain is a ‘mess from start to finish’
Former Walmart president and CEO Bill Simon argues Biden should start by focusing on alleviating the labor shortage.
Former Walmart president and CEO Bill Simon ripped the supply chain under President Joe Biden on Friday, calling it a "mess from start to finish."
"I've never seen it like this, and I don't really think anybody living in this country has," Simon told FOX Business’ Dagen McDowell. "I mean, this is really unprecedented."
Simon joined "Mornings with Maria" to react to Americans’ widespread criticism of Biden’s response to shipping challenges and rising consumer prices. The hashtag #EmptyShelvesJoe held its own as a top trend on Twitter Thursday evening.
"There's a shortage of labor in our distribution system and there's a shortage of people to put [items] on the shelf," Simon explained.
