Trump remains resolute in not using the Defense Production Act (DPA) to facilitate national testing.

According to The New York Times, “Aides and allies increasingly believe the president’s daily briefings are hurting him more than helping, and are urging him to let his medical experts take center stage.”
The Times reports that GOP lawmakers and White House officials are telling Trump to cut down on his “error-filled appearances” and get to work preparing for the “looming recession.”
