Trump Signs Executive Order Keeping Food Factories Open During Outbreak

, , 103 Comments

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.

Do YOU think that Donald Trump was right to sign the order? Comment below!

    They never should have been shut down in the first place. We havent ever shut down before when there was a virus. The only thing different about this one is the Dumbocraps arent in charge and needed a reason to tank the economy.

    Absolutely needed. Stop dumping milk, eggs, turning crops back into the ground. Stop killing pigs cattle and livestock, only to import cheaper grade higher profit imports from communist and foreign countries. STOP. Charge corporation huge tariffs on imported products that corporations have made farmers destroy here, and must retail for half as much as destroyed American product would retail for. Stop this potential FAMINE and FOOD SHORTAGE, now.

    Do they shutdown for the flu? It is about the same except we have shots for it and most have taken at least one shot I bet. They do need protection from it and that is the company problem to provide it. Take temp an if over Send them home. I bet Union is right that the company are just pushing to meet quata .

    THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT. I LIVE ON A RANCH AND THE CATTLE HAVE TO GO TO THE MARKET
    AND TO HAVE THE PIG FARMERS KILL THEIR PIGS BECAUSE THE MARKETS ARE CLOSED IS INSANE.
    IT COST A LOT OF MONEY TO RAISE THOSE PIGS AND IT WOULD BE SUCH A WASTE TO NOT HAVE THEM GO TO MARKET. PEOPLE WORKING IN THE MARKETS NEED TO WEAR MASKS AND GLOVES AND GOWNS AND TAKE SPECIAL MEASURES TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. THE MEAT THEY ARE PROCESSING IS ALSO FOR THEIR FAMILIES SO THEY SHOULD CARE ABOUT KEEPING THE MARKETS OPEN. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE ALL YOU WORKERS IN THE PLANTS WE APPRECIATE YOU.

    The President has great thinking. He is right that there would be a shortage of food. People that disagree I like to see them be President and do the right decision. They would not even know where to start.

    Outstanding ! Another Great Move by the Commander N Chief. If the Unions dont want to work, fire their ass & hire those who want to get this country moving again. Our First responders, Military, Health professionals, Transportation Professionals, Grocery Store workers are ALL working, NO excuse to close meat processing & packing plants, & cause an unnecessary shortage & waist of thousands of pounds of meat.

    The liberal left wing goons want to keep Americans shut out of work and businesses closed to see how far they can push the American people into socialism and communism and take complete control over the population of Americans. They want to have people dependent on the government for handouts which in turn leads to slavery. The younger generations had better wake up to what they are facing when everyone of our freedoms and liberties are taken away. Whatever is taken away from us will never be regained, and by these socialist, commies

    I agree. The packing industry never should have shut down. The company without food would ruin us. The animals have to be processed at a regular times. Otherwise they will have to destroy them and waste food. People are getting to worked up about this virus. We have new viruses every year and can’t just shut down our own food supply because this virus is being made to be worse than it is.

He made the right decision when he signed this order.
