|White House Announces Landmark Executive Order to End Reliance on China for Medical Supplies
By Shane Trejo
White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro has announced that the Trump administration is working on an executive order to end supply-chain reliance for medical supplies with China.
The administration plans to issue this “Buy American” executive order in the upcoming days. They came to this determination after meeting with Republican Senators earlier this week.
The order will stop the federal government from buying medical supplies, which includes gloves, face masks, and ventilators, from China. They have cracked down on the export of medical face masks in lieu of the pandemic, instead choosing to horde them, showing the ills of globalism.
Due to the coronavirus scare, Americans are learning just how dependent they are upon China for crucial and lifesaving goods. A shocking 90 percent of antibiotics used in the U.S. are manufactured in China. Navarro has confirmed that the administration no longer wants the country to be so reliant on China.
“China has managed to dominate all aspects of the supply chain using the same unfair trade practices that it has used to dominate other sectors — cheap sweatshop labor, lax environmental regulations and massive government subsidies,” Navarro told New York Times. “As President Trump has said, what we need to do is bring those jobs home so that we can protect the public health and the economic and national security of the country.”
