Trump denounces 3M after ordering company to make masks

Trump denounces 3M after ordering company to make masks”

They may also include some well-established PPE distributors with the ability to unscrupulously divert PPE inventories from domestic customers, such as hospitals and State governments, to foreign purchasers willing to pay significant premiums.

Trump announced during the White House coronavirus task force briefing on Thursday that he had signed an order for 3M to produce facial masks.

US trade adviser Peter Navarro said that the government had some issues making sure that enough of the masks produced by 3M around the world were coming back to the United States. But with the pandemic, the president sees it as a 'break the glass’ last resort”.

Besides, according to a memo issued by the White House on Thursday (April 2nd), the US President Donald Trump had ordered the US Health and Human Services Secretary to capitalize on his authoritative power to enforce six US companies to manufacture ventilators such as General Electric Co., Medtronic Plc., Royal Philips NV, Hill-Rom Holdings Inc., Resmed Inc.

In addition, 3M said that stopping the export of respirators would likely cause other countries to retaliate and do the same.

"If that happened, the net number of respirators available to the United States would actually decrease", 3M said.

In the past few weeks and months, 3M and its employees have done their best to make as many N95 respirators as possible for the American market. "Again, we encourage automakers, aerospace equipment producers, and other non- ventilation manufacturers to help us source or create more of these components, strengthening the supply chain that all ventilator makers are drawing from to help meet this rising global demand and save lives". For example, earlier this week, we got approval from China to export to the US.

The Administration also requested that 3M stop exporting respirators that we now manufacture in the United States to the Canadian and Latin American markets.

"Ceasing all export of respirators produced in the United States of America would probably trigger different worldwide locations to retaliate and do the identical, as some have already accomplished", 3M stated.

The United States is in need of critical infrastructure to fight the COVID-19 outbreak, including ventilators and respirators.

Roman stated on # that "we're web importing [respirators] into the USA, and we have been telling the administration for days and days".

Following the announcement of the DPA order, 3M said in a statement on Friday it would work closely with FEMA to increase the production of respirators. "We will continue to maximize the amount of respirators we can produce on behalf of USA health care workers, as we have every single day since this crisis began". "The concept that we're not doing every little thing we will to maximise deliveries of respirators in our residence nation - nothing is farther from the reality".
