As COVID-19 pandemic-related supply chain issues continue to impact the U.S. economy, President Joe Biden said Thursday night that he would send deploy the National Guard to help fix the issue.

“Yes, absolutely, positively. I will do that,” Biden said when asked by moderator Anderson Cooper during CNN's town hall in Baltimore. Specifically, he said National Guard members would be called to help fill out a shortage of truck drivers.
