What is she planning now?
Recently on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) demanded President Trump “immediately implement the Defense Production Act (DPA)” to fight the spread of coronavirus.
However, Trump already utilized the Act when he ordered GM to make ventilators.
According to Breitbart, Mika Brzezinski questioned Pelosi, “If you could speak to [Trump] directly, what do you wish he would be doing now that he is not doing?”
“To the president, I would join those, whether it’s the governors, the mayors, people across the country who are saying, ‘We need the equipment, the personal protective equipment, for the workers, the ventilators and other equipment for the patients,’” Pelosi said. “We need proper testing, testing, testing. So I would say to the president, immediately, implement the Defense Production Act insisting that businesses in our country turn to producing the equipment that we need.”
Adding, “The American people, their representatives, officialdom, all the rest, are united in that recognition of that need. It will save lives.”
Brzezinski reminded Pelosi that Trump already utilized the DPA but Pelosi who was unsatisfied said it was done too “discreetly”.
“He has discreetly just in a discreet way done something about ventilators, but there’s an overall appeal for him to do much, much more. And this is nothing that can be handled piecemeal. It has to be across the board,” she declared. You can watch a clip of her comments here.
