President Donald Trump called for an American independence agenda to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and encouraged Republicans and Democrats alikw to support it.

While delivering remarks during the coronavirus task force briefing on Tuesday, the president highlighted the great need for American independence in manufacturing and energy and to strengthen our borders.

The president said:

"We should never be reliant on a foreign country for the means of our own survival. I think we’ve learned a lot. This crisis has underscored just how critical it is to have strong borders and a robust manufacturing sector. For three years, we’ve embarked on a great national project to secure our immigration system and bring back our manufacturing jobs. We’ve brought back many jobs, record numbers of jobs, and this really shows, this experience shows how important borders are. Without borders, you don’t have a nation."
