Sorry, Greta. We’ve got to keep those farting cows fat and happy.
According to the Washington Examiner:
President Trump plans to order meat processing plants to stay open during the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump said he would sign an executive order under the Defense Production Act declaring the plants part of critical infrastructure in the United States.
“We’re going to sign an executive order today, I believe, and that’ll solve any liability problems,” Trump said Tuesday during an Oval Office meeting with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican.
Processing plants in more than a dozen states have shut down in recent weeks because of coronavirus outbreaks in rural meatpacking communities, putting the country’s food supply chain at risk.
