Another huge win for President Donald Trump.
According to a report by the Chicago Tribune, President Donald Trump just signed an executive order on Tuesday to allow meat processing plants to stay open amid concerns over growing coronavirus cases and the impact on the nation’s food supply.
This executive order ensures that the American people will get the food they need and prevent a food shortage during the Coronavirus outbreak.
What Trump Signed
The order President Trump signed uses the Defense Production Act to classify meat processing as critical infrastructure to try to prevent a shortage of chicken, pork and other meat on supermarket shelves.
Of course, unions protested as usual against Trump’s order, claiming that they don’t want to work during the Coronavirus outbreak.
However, unlike the unions, Donald Trump has his priorities straight. He knows that the American people should come first. And by allowing food factories to stay open, he is ensuring that people won’t go hungry.
“Such closures [over Coronavirus] threaten the continued functioning of the national meat and poultry supply chain, undermining critical infrastructure during the national emergency,” the order states.
“As pork, beef and chicken plants are being forced to close, even for short periods of time, millions of pounds of meat will disappear from the supply chain,” the document read.
As a result, Trump’s order should prevent such problems from happening.
