New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio said during an interview on MSNBC Saturday that the U.S. faces a "war-like" situation in battling the coronavirus and as such "nationalization" of industries should take place.

After host Joy Reid said it seems "insane" that people can't get tested for the virus in "modern" New York, the mayor said that they were available on a "priority" basis.

"But there's not enough testing, it's just as simple as that," he continued. 


"This is a war-like situation, we are in a war-time scenario with a Mar-a-Lago attitude being used by the federal government," de Blasio said, a reference to President Trump's Florida resort.
