Trump Blames General Motors After His Admin Kills Deal to Build More Life-Saving Ventilators

President Donald Trump blamed General Motors after the Trump administration killed a deal with the company to build life-saving ventilators (VIDEO BELOW).

The New York Times reports that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) does not want to pay “more than $1 billion, with several hundred million dollars to be paid upfront to General Motors to retool a car parts plant in Kokomo, Indiana …Two officials said the suggestion to wait on the General Motors offer came from Col. Patrick Work, who is working at FEMA.”

Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on March 26 that he didn’t believe that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo really needed to have 30,000 additional ventilators as he had been requesting:

I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You go into major hospitals sometimes, and they’ll have two ventilators. And now all of a sudden they’re saying, ‘Can we order 30,000 ventilators?
