Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Trump tweets blame in all directions over ventilators for coronavirus, except at himself”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Hours after a Fox News interview in which he downplayed a national shortage of hospital ventilators to treat patients infected with the coronavirus, President Trump fired off a number of tweets Friday blaming General Motors and its CEO, Mary Barra, for not manufacturing more of them.

As usual with “this” General Motors, things just never seem to work out. They said they were going to give us 40,000 much needed Ventilators, “very quickly”. Now they are saying it will only be 6000, in late April, and they want top dollar. Always a mess with Mary B. Invoke “P”.

The president explained in a later tweet that “P” stood for the Defense Production Act, which many U.S. governors have been demanding Trump use to compel businesses to produce badly needed medical supplies and equipment. Although he invoked the act as a standby, Trump hasn’t issued any specific orders under it, claiming that just the threat of it has prompted companies to step up production on their own.

Trump also lashed out at GM over its decision to shutter an auto manufacturing plant in Lordstown, Ohio, and, without invoking the DPA, demanded it reopen the facility for ventilator production. The company sold the plant in November.

General Motors MUST immediately open their stupidly abandoned Lordstown plant in Ohio, or some other plant, and START MAKING VENTILATORS, NOW!!!!!! FORD, GET GOING ON VENTILATORS, FAST!!!!!! @GeneralMotors @Ford
