    Yes, this needs to be investigated, like looking to see if any of these companies benefitted from Trump's actions and see which of them are his cronies or donating to his campaign.

    Business Insider: The federal government outbid states on critical coronavirus supplies after Trump told governors to get their own medical equipment
    Baker, a moderate Republican, added, "I've got a feeling that if someone has the chance to sell to you and to sell to me, I am going to lose on every one of those."

    Trump chuckled at that and then said the federal government probably offered the manufacturers a better price.

    "Price is always a component of that also," Trump said. "And maybe that's why you lost to the feds, okay, I'll tell you, that's probably why."

    Then he blamed FEMA.
    Later on the call, after the New Mexico government made a similar complaint, Trump said he would tell FEMA to ensure state orders aren't turned down over a conflict with his administration.
    I want to know which companies those were that got more money.
