Attorney General William Barr just confirmed the rumors. It is over — he made the announcement this week, but the mainstream media barely covered it. Barr means business.
“If you are sitting on a warehouse with masks, surgical masks, you will be hearing a knock on your door,” said Barr during a press conference. He is going after price gougers to protect Americans during the COVID-19 crisis.
“To ensure the availability of critical medical and health supplies from hoarding and price gouging, on March 18, the president issued Executive Order 13909 invoking the Defense Production Act,” Barr continued.
As a result of Trump issuing the order, this will push back against the price gougers and encourage the production of medical supplies and equipment needed to give healthcare workers and our communities what they need.
Barr then noted how Trump signed a second Executive Order to — if necessary — designate certain supplies as “scarce” to prevent hoarding during this time. Democrats, on the other hand, have done nothing.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi even briefly stalled the coronavirus bill in order to leverage some last-minute influence. Trump and Barr are leading the way and America will overcome this crisis.
