Wildwood Crest - Trump has resisted calls from Democrats and a number of Governors to use a federal law that would mobilize industry to provide resources against the coronavirus spread, days after he said he would consider using that authority. Trump has given conflicting signals about the Defense Production Act since he said he was prepared to invoke the law, which was passed at the outset of the Korean War to give presidents extraordinary powers to force industries to produce critical equipment.The next day, he said that obtaining equipment should be up to each governor because “we’re not a shipping clerk.”
