When Donald Trump was president in 2020, the price to ship a container from Asia to California was $3,800. That price spiked to $17,000 in October of 2021, according to supply chain technology company Freightos.

Freightos also revealed that shipping to the east coast is more expensive than the west coast, with rates reaching $20,000..

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has also been absent from his post. Buttigieg has taken paternity leave since mid-August with his husband and two children. Buttigieg’s absence has been defended by the White House while they weigh whether to deploy the National Guard to confront the crisis.
