Via TTN:

President Biden couldn’t help himself from taking a dig at his predecessor while announcing a plan to raise standards for businesses that compete for lucrative federal contracts with U.S.-made products.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Biden will announce on Friday that he is increasing the threshold for would-be federal contractors to use U.S.-made goods from 55% to 75% by 2029, according to senior administration officials. The threshold will be 60% this year, 65% in 2024, and peak five years later to provide businesses time to adjust their supply chains to depend more heavily on American parts or to move their in-house manufacturing facilities stateside.

“You may recall the previous administration made big claims on how they would restore America’s industrial might,” a senior administration official told reporters. “That turned out to be just rhetoric.”

“President Trump’s promises went nowhere and manufacturing continued to limp along,” she continued. “In the end, after his botched pandemic response, we ended up with 182,000 fewer manufacturing jobs by the end of his four years in office.”

A new Small Business Administration manufacturing office within its federal contracting division will help with the “Make Buy American Real” rule transition process, according to an official. Agencies will work with the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership to identify and develop American sources for government needs as well.

Biden’s rule builds on previous regulations trying to increase “equity” in federal acquisition.

Where does this moron get her facts? From the leftist propaganda media machine? Trump policies brought back manufacturing to America. Under Biden more manufacturing moved back out of America and cancelled business expansion here. Pedo Joe is a worthless, lying, little weasel that’s even more of wuss than Barry.

I wish they would say who that “senior administration official” is that spews those lies about Trump. It’s all just the normal lying and propaganda of the democrats. Like when they say, I’ve created 6 million jobs since I took office. No,Joe, 6 million people went back to work from everything being shut down through the pandemic. There’s still 4 million more who have not gone back to work because of the companies that went out of business. So actually, Joe, you’re still 4 million short of the employment created through Trump’s administration!

I loved Trump up until he was pushing the poison poke. Surly, he is not ignorant of all the pain suffering and death that has resulted from it. No one needed that thing and especially to push it on children. The evil knows no bounds. In most cases whatever the mainstream NWO owned news says, you know the opposite is true. When they say, it is safe and effective, you know the truth is, that it is a killer and destroyer of health. “You will own nothing, and you will eat ZBugs and ZWeeds”. Klaus Schwab

He actually said “It’s your choice”, no mandates from President Trump.

He still recently highly recommended taking it and said that he thinks it is good. He has to know that it is hurting people. Why would he still push it? Is he thinking that only liberals would be dumb enough to take it, and therefore it would thin the liberal herd? and therefore make the world a better place?

He recommended taking the shot. He only made the shot available more quickly which satisfied those hollering for him to hurry up and do something, so he did. Your choice to have it or not. Ol biden mandated it for everyone – or else.

Don’t worry Mary, I voted for Trump both times and I would vote for him again. I just don’t like the way he is sticking with the poke even after the results have been so terrible. I think he was a very good president. The best in my lifetime.

Trump signed an executive order back in July of 2019 that that will eventually raise these standards up to 75 per cent and above so that domestic goods will have to have 75 per cent American, and 95 per cent for iron and steel. He understood he had to give the companies a chance to change their manufacturing and it couldn’t be one overnight. Biden’s speech writers know about as little as he does. This was already done under Trump.

Further proof of ol’ biden’s deteriorating mental state. He has ruined this country in a bit over a year but he is blaming President Trump for his failures. He doesn’t have the Midas touch that’s for sure, he has the exact opposite, he has the Sadim touch.
