Trump said at a press conference Tuesday that he believed the deal would help Kodak expand into a new sector, but that he was not personally involved in crafting the arrangement.
“The concept of the deal is good…We’ll do a little study on that. We’ll find out. If there is any problem, we’ll let you know about it very quickly,” he said. “I wasn’t involved in it. It’s a big deal, it’s a way of bringing back a great area, in addition to pharmaceuticals.”
The deal, which was first announced in late July, would involve the first loan of its kind under the Defense Production Act (DPA) and will be focused on producing ingredients for generic drugs.
White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said at the time it was a “big win” and would help ease American reliance on foreign supply chains, an issue that has been thrust into the spotlight during the coronavirus pandemic.
