CHICAGO – Illinois' Governor JB Pritzker was on CNN Sunday morning complaining about how difficult it has been for him to acquire personal protective equipment for Illinois medical staff from the Trump Administration.

"It's the Wild West out there," Pritzker said, upset that Illinois was being forced to compete on the world market for the needed equipment. He went on to call on the president to demand private manufacturers join an effort to make those in-demand items.

He went on to point to the federal government's delays in making policy adjustments quick enough to save states from being "on their own."
