TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): One of the many unintended -- we don't know -- one of the consequences of the war in Ukraine is food shortages. Ukraine is one of the world's leading wheat exporters. As a result of the fighting there now, there will be food insecurity in this country and there will be famine in the developing world. People will die. In Cameroon, for example, the government says it's facing a wheat shortage and it increased the price of bread by more than 40%. 

So, to be very clear, the government of Ukraine is controlled by the U.S. State Department. 

If Joe Biden called Zelensky on the phone tonight and said, "Come to terms. Let's end this, let's restore stability to Europe and prevent famine in the developing world and food insecurity in this country," he could get it done like that. But he won't do that. The State Department and the Congress are standing in the way of that. Why, you wonder.
