Trump: Medical supplies need to be made in US

Speaking at the Honeywell mask production facility in Pheonix on Tuesday on his first trip outside Washington in nearly two months, United States President Donald Trump said he wants all necessary medical supplies to be manufactured in the US in the future.

He noted his administration believes in two rules: "Buy American and hire American," adding that, in the past, the country has allowed the production of medical equipment to be outsourced to other nations and that the COVID-19 outbreak has shown the US cannot allow for that to go on.

Additionally, he promised shutdown measures placed across the nation to contain the spread of the virus will be lifted in a "safe and gradual" way, underscoring, however, the importance for the economy to go back to normal.
