Pelosi urges Trump to tap emergency manufacturing powers ’immediately’

Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday urged President Trump to use the emergency war powers he invoked just a day earlier. ’Shortages of critical medical and personal protective equipment are harming our ability to fight the coronavirus epidemic’ Pelosi said in a statement. This comes after Trump on Wednesday had invoked the 1950 Defense Production Act.

Just a few months ago she wanted to remove this man as a "threat to Democracy." Now she is demanding that he take on more power. Let that sink in for a moment.

in case some if you didn't read the articles, what Pelosi is asking for is that the president uses his emergency war powers to ramp up the manufacturing and distribution of emergency medical equipment which would increase production of masks, ventilators, as well as expand hospital capacity to combat coronavirus. Right now in case you also didn't know, we're trying to prevent hospital overload and hospitals are running out of equipment due to people panic buying them all and to make matters even worse the US doesn't have enough test kits to test everyone who may have the virus. The number of people with the virus has reached to 6000 and those are just the confirmed cases so far. So by Trump doing this he could help give hospitals what they need to help fight back against the coronavirus. By him not doing this, hospitals will continue to struggle and more people will not be tested therefore more people will get the virus and sadly more deaths will occur, the deaths are up to 100 so far

If this woman tell you to do one thing, you should probably do the opposite.

@Brandon Spears. Well said, it's just a shame you should have to explain any of this at all. Every country hit really hard by this is doing exactly the same thing, partially cos we all know some private businesses just won't play ball, whatever the cost.
