White House vows to crack down on medical supply black market

White Residence trade adviser Peter Navarro on Thursday vowed to crackdown on an rising black market place that peddles important health care equipment overseas.

Talking at the White House day by day coronavirus push briefing, Navarro described the shady exchange of individual protective gear from domestic hoarders to brokers, who then ship the goods abroad at a profit.

“When President Trump heard about that, he explained which is not going to take place any longer beneath my watch,” Navarro mentioned.

Navarro said that an get, anticipated to be issued Friday, will allow the US Customs and Border Defense to enforce the crack down.

“So we are likely to crack down unmercifully,” Navarro mentioned.

“And I would say to the hoarders out there, the brokers who are trying to make dollars off the misery of folks in this place or about the earth — that is got to halt. That stuff has absolutely got to prevent.”

Navarro instructed the underground players to mail their supplies to FEMA for a reasonable price.
