Something smells fishy here…
Just today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told President Trump to assume dictatorial powers by calling on the newly signed Defense Production Act.
According to the Daily Wire, Pelosi said, “Right now, shortages of critical medical and personal protective equipment are harming our ability to fight the coronavirus epidemic, endangering front-line workers and making it harder to care for those who fall ill. The president must immediately use the powers of the Defense Production Act to mass produce and coordinate distribution of these critical supplies, before the situation worsens and the shortages become even more dire. There is not a day to lose. We must put more testing, more production equipment and more ventilators into the hands of our frontline workers immediately.”
But President Trump is no stupid man, Just yesterday he reassured Americans that he will not use these powers for anything other than containing the coronavirus outbreak.
“I only signed the Defense Production Act to combat the Chinese Virus should we need to invoke it in a worst case scenario in the future. Hopefully there will be no need, but we are all in this TOGETHER!” Trump wrote on twitter.
