3M will pay big price over face masks: Trump

In a tweet, U.S. President Donald Trump has slammed 3M Co for its business practises.

The tweet comes in the wake of Trump’s earlier announcement of invoking the Defense Production Act to get the company to produce face masks.

“We hit 3M hard today after seeing what they were doing with their Masks. ‘P Act’ all the way.’ Big surprise to many in government as to what they were doing – will have a big price to pay!” tweeted Trump.

“Hopefully they’ll be able to do what they are supposed to do,” said Trump without elaborating.

St. Paul, Minnesota-based 3M did not immediately respond to requests for comments.

At a news briefing, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said, “We’ve had some issues making sure that all of the production that 3M does around the world, enough of it is coming back here to the right places.”

These developments come in the wake of N-95 face masks produced by 3M as well as by other companies, being in short supply among healthcare workers treating the COVID-19 patients.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to announce guidelines in the coming days and could tell Americans to wear face masks when leaving home.
