“Right now, America is fighting on two fronts. At home, it’s inflation and rising prices. Abroad, it’s helping Ukrainians defend their democracy,” said President Biden after meeting with farmers in Kankakee, Illinois. He spoke about food production, praising American farmers for assisting Ukraine amid disruptions from the Russian invasion of the country. The president also elaborated on prices, saying, “Only four big companies ... control more than half the markets for beef, pork, and poultry,” and that both farmers and Americans in general are paying too much money due to this lack of competition. Representative Robin Kelly (D-IL), Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, and a local farmer also spoke at the event. close
