Reports: Trump to order U.S. meat processing plants to stay open

Several
media outlets are reporting that President Trump is going to invoke the Defense
Production Act and order the nation’s meat processing plants to remain open.

Trump told reporters in the Oval Office earlier today that he planned to sign an executive order to address “liability problems” related to the food supply chain and specifically mentioned Tyson Foods. The order will reportedly apply to all meat processing plants, however.

The
administration has come under increasing pressure to address the packing plants
issue.
