WASHINGTON, (Reuters) – Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo stated Wednesday that the use of the National Guard in order to ease U.S. supply-chain problems is an option, but it was not currently under discussion.

Everything is there. “We are actually going through the entire toolbox in order to decide which steps would help,” Raimondo told CNN. It’s not something we’re seriously considering right now, Raimondo said.

Last month, President Joe Biden made a live televised announcement that he had been considering the deployment of the National Guard. The Guard is controlled by the U.S. States and helps to reduce the stress in America’s supply chain which causes backlogs, higher prices, and higher costs for consumers.

Raimondo stated that the White House did not retract the comments, although it later confirmed the possibility.

“We keep in touch daily with governors, asking them how we can help you.”
