WASHINGTON/DETROIT (Reuters) - President Donald Trump urged General Motors Co and Ford Motor Co on Friday to quickly build badly needed ventilators for COVID-19 patients and suggested he could invoke the Defense Production Act.
GM (GM.N) and Ford (F.N) announced they are working with companies to help boost ventilator production in recent days. Many Democrats including New York Governor Andrew Cuomo have urged Trump to invoke the law and require industrial companies to build medical equipment.
