President Biden signs 'Buy American' executive order, requiring U.S. manufacturing through the federal procurement process.
President Joe Biden signed an executive order Monday aimed at promoting the "Buy American" agenda he campaigned on last year, which seeks to bolster U.S. manufacturing through the federal procurement process.

The executive order directs agencies to strengthen requirements about purchasing products and services from U.S. workers and businesses, cuts some red tape and creates a position in the Office of Management and Budget responsible for enforcing the directive.

The order also reiterates the Biden administration's support for the Jones Act, which limits foreign maritime shipping between U.S. ports to U.S.-made and -owned vessels.

During the campaign, Biden proposed a Buy American plan calling for a $400 billion, four-year increase in government purchasing of U.S.-made products and services.

"It's based on his view that we are making things in America and all of America is core to our economic strategy," an administration official told reporters Sunday"

No, actually Trump did not already do this. After four years, Donald Trump issued regulations increasing the share of a product’s components that must be produced domestically to qualify as U.S.-made just one day before he left office. Biden's EO requires government contracts to purchase fully American made, not just a share of it American made, if it is available.

The EO also makes government purchasing transparent by creating a website where American businesses can see what contracts are being awarded to foreign vendors, allowing them to alert the government to the availability of a domestic alternative

Yes, this will increase some contract costs but it fully supports American businesses and jobs now. Nothing wrong with that.
