White House Confirms Executive Order That Would End Medical Supply Chain Reliance On China

Best news I've heard all day! We should have never allowed this country to become reliant for China for our medicines, EVER!

The order would prevent federal agencies from purchasing medical supplies, including face masks, gloves & ventilators from China.

‘Buy American’ — White House Confirms Executive Order That Will End Medical Supply Chain Reliance On China

White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro confirmed Wednesday the administration is working on an executive order to eliminate the government’s reliance on foreign-made medical supplies.

The “Buy American” order comes on the heels of concerns expressed by senators during their Tuesday meeting with President Donald Trump on Capitol Hill.

Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said that during the meeting on easing coronavirus-related financial pressures on Americans, he asked Trump to support the Senate’s “efforts to invest in diversifying our supply chain, especially in pharmaceuticals and medical equipment.”

At yesterday’s lunch I asked @POTUS to support our efforts to invest in diversifying our supply chain, especially in pharmaceuticals & medical equipment.

He agreed & his team led by by Peter Navarro are also working on an EO to help address this. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/11/business/economy/coronavirus-chi...

The order would prevent federal agencies from purchasing medical supplies, including face masks, gloves and ventilators, from China.

As the United States has battled the domestic spread of coronavirus, consumers were alerted to the fact that China manufactures an overwhelming percentage of the federal government’s medical equipment. 90 percent of all U.S. antibiotics were manufactured in China.

Until the coronavirus, the majority of us had no idea that China made 90% of our medical supplies and antibiotics. That is scary!  Then China's government spreads propaganda, claiming that our military brought a biological weapon into their country and infected their citizens, threatening to withhold necessary medication from us to fight the coronavirus! We should never have started doing business with communist, and must stop now! 

I had no idea either that China had such a hold over us with regards to our medicines and medical supplies. I believe Trump will make sure this comes to and end.

I think China's hold is worse than we can imagine Lynn. Trump has been fighting against China for years, and it has been an up hill fight all the way! There are a lot of very powerful people that like doing business with the communist, and they will do all in their power to stop Trump from interfering with their communist connections. We all need to fight back right along with Trump if we expect to stop giving our sovereignty away to the communist. 

I doubt that most people knew how much we relied on China for so much medication and medical equipment.   I know I didn’t realize it.  I am very happy with Trump’s moves to get the production of this stuff on American soil.  A country like China should never have been allowed to have so reliant on them!

It's not just medical supplies either, a lot of our products are made in China. In the event of a war, pandemic, or China just wanting to Lord over us, the supply chain would be interrupted.

That’s a real concern, Watchman.  I just hope we can effect this change before China pulls rank, and pulls its products.

Watchman, I believe that it has already been interrupted. Although the stores are restocking, has any one else noticed that certain products are missing or in limited supply?

Great news!

Senator Cotton introduces bill to protect our pharmaceutical supply chain from China!

ARKANSAS, USA — Senator Tom Cotton sent out a news release stating that earlier this month, a Chinese Communist Party propaganda outlet insinuated that Beijing could cut off supplies of life-saving medicine to the United States at any time.

“Unfortunately, this isn’t an empty threat. The United States is dangerously dependent for pharmaceuticals on the very regime whose failures and coverups caused this deadly pandemic to spiral out of control,” wrote Cotton.

Cotton says he has a plan to take back our ability to make pharmaceuticals and medical devices right here in America ending our dependence on Chinese drugs and medical devices.

“For two decades, the CCP has targeted America’s domestic drug manufacturers for destruction, using cartelization, state subsidies and lax safety standards to flood our hospitals and pharmacies with cheap and dangerous Chinese medicine,” wrote Cotton.

93 percent of all imported ibuprofen comes from China, and most of the active ingredients in drugs imported to us from countries like India also come from Chinese superlabs.

“Emergencies like pandemics and wars break down previously dependable supply chains and relationships as nations start to fend for themselves. It’s sadly clear America gave up the ability to fend for ourselves in basic medicine long ago,” wrote Senator Cotton.

Senator Cotton introduced a bill to protect our pharmaceutical supply chain from China.

Cotton wrote “Our bill would require federal entities like the Department of Defense, VA hospitals, Medicare and Medicaid to cut off purchases of drugs with Chinese ingredients no later than 2025. This requirement would phase in over a period of years to give drug companies time to adjust but would put clear pressure on importers to stop doing business with the CCP. The bill also would require drug companies to label the origins of ingredients in their drugs, so U.S. consumers are better informed of where their medicine comes from and whether it’s likely to be safe.”
