The Trump administration is preparing an executive order that would require certain essential drugs and medical treatments for a variety of conditions be made in the U.S.

The order comes in light of drug and device shortages during the Covid-19 pandemic. A draft of the order is circulating inside the government and was obtained by Bloomberg News.
