Former Trump administration official Olivia Troye has destroyed Kellyanne Conway’s false claim that there was no supply chain crisis under Trump.
Troye tweeted over a video in which Conway lies about the origins of the current supply chain crisis:
My memory is very different from Kellyanne Conway’s, especially when it comes to the 2020 crisis. I remember being with her in MANY discussions in the White House with the ex-husband about bottlenecks in the supply chain from PPE to TP in the same room … 🧻 https://t.co/kgk9OU4GRI

Given that no one in the White House knew what Kellyanne Conway’s job was, except babysitting Trump, it’s no surprise she didn’t hear about the supply chain crisis.
The crisis started in 2020, but its original roots go back to Trump’s failed trade war with China. After COVID conquered the globe, Trump came up with the brilliant idea of punishing China by tearing the Chinese away from global supply chains.
Turning the supply chain into a huge mess, Trump returned to Florida for a golf break and had the new Biden administration, the equivalent of Michael Scott’s office carpet surprise, repaired.
Olivia Troye was right. Kellyanne Conway lied.
The narrative the exiled trumpers are trying to sell is that the world was perfect, overlooking the collapsed economy and the hundreds of thousands of Americans who died of COVID before Biden took office.
President Biden and his team are clearing up Donald Trump’s clutter, and one of the biggest problems the Trump White House left in his escape was the supply chain crisis that the Biden administration is now trying to resolve.
