Trump Cheers Distilleries who Have Started Making Hand Sanitizer Amid Crisis


In response to the panic buying of hand sanitizer, some private distilleries have decided to start manufacturing it. President Trump has cheered this ingenuity.

According to The Daily Wire:

A growing number of local distilleries are finding a creative way to help Americans — and their employees — amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Distilleries in Pennsylvania, Vermont and North Carolina are temporarily converting their operations to produce a much-needed product amid the plague of panic-buying: hand sanitizer.

In a report promoted by President Trump on Thursday, NBC News tells the story of multiple local distillery owners responding to the exploding demand for hand sanitizer, which has largely disappeared from shelves and is one of the more price-gouged items during the crisis.


“A Pennsylvania distillery owner who grew increasingly angry as he saw the skyrocketing price of hand sanitizer has decided to do something about it: He’s temporarily converting his operation into a production line for the suddenly hard-to-find, gooey, alcohol-based disinfectant,” NBC reported this week.

The goal is to flood the market with hand sanitizer to drive the price down for everyday consumers who need it.
