Jared Kushner: Coronavirus Exposed Our Reliance On Foreign Supplies
In an exclusive interview with Fox News host Steve Hilton Sunday night, President Donald Trump’s Senior Advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner explained that the coronavirus pandemic exposed the dangerous reliance the U.S. supply chain has on other countries.
“I think the campaign platform that President Trump ran on in 2016 which was basically ‘you have to secure your borders and you have to control your own manufacturing as a national security issue.’ I think those have been totally vindicated positions from the virus and I doubt it will be easy for people to argue against them in the future,” Kushner said.
Kushner has been working to secure critical supplies for states in need during the pandemic, including New York where ventilators were short of projections. He’s also working to supply critical Personal Protective Equipment for nursing homes and other areas of need as the country looks to reopen.
