Trump uses defence mechanism to ensure ventilator production

US President Donald Trump invokes defence mechanism to compel General Motors to make ventilators. Mr Trump said: "This afternoon, I invoke the Defence Production Act to compel General Motors to accept, perform and prioritise federal contracts for ventilators.
