Trump Invokes Defense Production Act

At a White House press conference, President Trump claimed the COVID-19 crises was “a very unforeseen thing,” and then invoked the Defense Production Act (DPA), a set of emergency powers that give the federal government the ability to ramp up the production of medical supplies such as masks, ventilators, gloves and other equipment to help the U.S. medical system respond to coronavirus cases.

Wait a minute, I thought the administration deals with situations like these with “thoughts and prayers?” If not, what the hell’s the point of putting someone with absolutely no medical background whatsoever like Mike Pence in charge?

So, does enacting the Defense Production Act (DPA) mean the administration no longer considers coronavirus crises to be a huge hoax anymore? Of course, in all fairness, who could have known a coronavirus hoax could be so costly?

Anyway, speaking of ramping up production, it’s pretty obvious what we really need at a time like this - building more luxury golf and resort hotels. Otherwise, the next thing you know, a huge mess like this, could end up cutting into a fella’s golfing weekends.

Yes, he called upon it, but has not yet actually implemented it. So, nothing is happening, nothing. Still no test kits or protective gear or anything else being made. NOT ONE THING

Martial Law is on the way. Trump's dream. The evil genius of this guy is that he turns every disadvantage into an advantage -- for him; never mind the country, people or the world. Don't think that the Trump Cultists won't love that too. They will.

You're spot on David. Perhaps cancel the election in November.


He announced today, Thursday, that he Is invoking it.

I agree with all the descriptions of Trump offered up below. However, the most recent update I heard since the press conference is Trump has backed off the DPA for now. Obviously somebody behind the scenes got him and checked him. Probably a group of CEO's who would be most affected if DPA enacted.
