The CEO of 3M said Friday his company is maximizing its efforts to get respirator masks to U.S. health workers fighting the coronavirus, pushing back on what he called President Donald Trump’s “absurd” suggestion that the manufacturer was not doing all it could.
“Nothing is further from the truth,” CEO Mike Roman said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” after being read Trump’s tweet slamming 3M “after seeing what they were doing with their Masks.”
Over the last several weeks and months, 3M and its employees have gone above and beyond to manufacture as many N95 respirators as possible for the U.S. market. Yesterday, the Administration formally invoked the Defense Production Act (DPA) to require 3M to prioritize orders from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for our N95 respirators.

The reactions I have seen about this is telling me a story that there is no more compassion. This whole thing is really bringing out the true nature of people.
3M is being quite honest, and people are still throwing them under the bus. What did they do wrong? What did other places do wrong by wanting to buy masks and then have them stolen right from under their feet? It's insane.
