WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump plans to order U.S. meat processing plants facing concerns about coronavirus outbreaks to stay open to protect the country’s food supply, a senior administration official said on Tuesday. Trump is likely to sign an executive order later in the day using the Defense Production Act to mandate that the plants continue to function, the official said.
