Donald Trump Invokes the Defense Production Act Against 3M for Medical Masks

Steven Ahle| President Trump has taken decisive action against 3M as it is disclosed that they are sending almost every N-95 mask they make overseas amid accusations of price gouging made by billionaire Mark Cuban, who notified the Trump White House

President Trump has ordered Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf to aid FEMA by ordering 3M to supply the masks to hospitals and other organizations in the United States.

A law passed during the Korean War gives the president authority to order US companies to manufacture items for use during the DTMNBN (Disease That Must Not Be named) crises.

3M has been accused of selling the masks overseas to any country with cash to spend, often at an inflated price. Corporate greed is not necessarily a bad thing but during times of emergency it is intolerable that an American corporation deserts the country that made them rich.

From Breitbart News

President Donald Trump on Thursday invoked the Defense Production Act against 3M to acquire more medical masks to fight the coronavirus.

The president responded to the news reported by Fox News host Tucker Carlson that 3M was sending masks to foreign countries instead of shipping them to the United States.

Director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management Jared Moskowitz appeared on Carlson’s show to shame the company for not saving the masks for American workers.

Billionaire Mark Cuban also exposed 3M distributors for making as much money as possible with the masks and even spoke to the White House about the “price gouging” he said was taking place.

The president authorized Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf for FEMA “to acquire, from any appropriate subsidiary or affiliate of 3M Company, the number of N-95 respirators that the Administrator determines to be appropriate.”
