Just a couple months ago Nancy Pelosi was calling President Trump a “threat to national security.”
He had to be removed from office immediately because he was literally a “fanger” to everyone and everything around him.
Well, Pelosi is now eating her words.
After telling everyone what a clear and present danger Trump was, Pelosi has done a 180 and is now BEGGING President Trump to tap the “1950’s War Power.”
What does that mean exactly?
Well, the Defense Production Act, which was enacted back in 1950, gives the president the power to directly influence industrial capacity and direction for national defense.
Pelosi wants him to use that to help fight the Coronavirus.
The Defense Production Act was written during the Cold War in anticipation of major conflicts – but now, it might be used to tackle the COVID-19 outbreak.
Pelosi made the appeal to Trump in a Thursday statement, imploring him to invoke the Defense Production Act to fight the COVID-19 outbreak.
“Right now, shortages of critical medical and personal protective equipment are harming our ability to fight the coronavirus epidemic, endangering frontline workers and making it harder to care for those who fall ill,” Pelosi wrote.
“The President must immediately use the powers of the Defense Production Act to mass produce and coordinate distribution of these critical supplies, before the need worsens and the shortages become even more dire.”
Pelosi’s demand comes after worries that the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus could swamp U.S. hospitals and stress medical infrastructure.
A nationwide shortage of medical masks, hand sanitizer and gloves have underscored the supply chain’s weaknesses during the current pandemic.
The speaker stressed the importance of Trump’s immediate action.
“There is not a day to lose,” Pelosi wrote. “We must put more testing, more protective equipment and more ventilators into the hands of our frontline workers immediately.” [Western Journal]
It’s very ironic however, that the woman who told all of us what a “political monster” Trump was, is now begging him to use more of his powers.
She must have a great deal of faith in his abilities to use power. Gee, I guess he’s not a clear and present danger after all, huh?
Everything this woman does is pure political theatre.
