Up until the end of February, our own Commerce Dept., headed by Wilbur Ross, was sending out information to American manufacturers helping, and encouraging, them to export PPE’S by the ton to China. That was right about the time when new cases and deaths were popping up in Europe. That’s about 5,000 miles from Wuhan. And about 2 weeks before Trump suddenly announced “Houston, we have a problem”.
True, we have outsourced Pharma supplies, raw drug ingredients in the name of profitability for American companies. So bringing back some of that is not a bad idea. It’s not like China or India have not sent us supplies and drugs, however.
However, the White House message has to be to blame past policy mistakes and Mexicans. Oh, throw in China, WHO, my dear departed kin folks…
