Bill de Blasio on Homeland Security

NYC Mayor; Democratic Presidential Challenger (withdrawn)

 


Coronavirus: We need federalized dynamic as in wartime

We need the federal government to take over the supply chain right now. We have to make sure that that is a federalized dynamic, where those factories that produce those goods are put on 24/7 shifts, and those goods are distributed where they're needed most, as we would in wartime. If the federal government doesn't realize this is the equivalent of a war already, there is no way that states and localities can make all the adjustments we need to.
