In an interview with Britain’s Sky News on Monday, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen signaled that she has no doubt the U.S. could fund Israel and Ukraine in their ongoing military conflicts despite America’s rising gross national debt.
“America can certainly afford to stand with Israel and to support Israel’s military needs, and we also can and must support Ukraine in its struggle against Russia,” Yellen said.
She gaslighted the audience that the U.S. economy is doing “extremely well,” saying inflation has “come down considerably,” she said. “At the same time, we have about the strongest labor market we’ve seen in 50 years with 3.8% unemployment. And at the same time, America — the Biden administration — has passed legislation that is strengthening our economy in years to come for the medium term.”
Fact check: the Biden administration is destroying our economy, not strengthening it. Every American who goes to the supermarket, gasses up the car, and tries to buy a house is painfully aware of this. We can and should support Israel, but we cannot afford to keep hurling billions of dollars and military support to the corrupt Ukraine regime, pushing for nuclear war with Russia.
Yellen is simply spewing lies and propaganda.
