So the way you see it is that (1) inflation was basically unavoidable; (2) there's nothing this or any administration could do about it; and (3) that it's primarily been caused by our response to the war in Ukraine?

I will say, it's worth noting that there were people warning against doing those sanctions and further, the fact they didn't work (and had kind of a reverse effect in many ways) would sort of suggest they didn't need to happen.  In other words, if you knew beforehand they would have hurt us and Western Europe more than Russia, you'd agree we shouldn't do them, right?

No. Do you think we should only do the right thing when it doesn’t harm us? When it gets the results we want? That’s not how it works.

I don’t know what can be done about inflation, there might not be a quick fix solution. But the right thing isn’t always the easy thing.
