Senator Hoeven on Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg: "he has struggled"

(Fargo, ND) -- Senator John Hoeven is criticizing the job performance of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. 

"He has struggled. I mean obviously with whats happened in Ohio, but just in general. You know this inflation is a real problem for people and a big part of that is the supply chain issues. We've got to get on top of them. It's the whole gamut, whether you know it's our ports, whether it's rail, whether it's getting more truck drivers, you know we've got to cut this regulatory burden," said Hoeven.   

Hoeven says the way for Buttigieg and the rest of the administration to empower people is "to take all red tape and bureaucracy off their back". 

The senator made the comments while appearing on "What's on Your Mind" on AM 1100 The Flag.
