Trump invokes Defense Production Act on 3M N95 respiratory masks


Glen Stubbe – Star Tribune

In March, Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House's coronavirus response coordinator, held a 3M N95 mask as she visited 3M headquarters in Maplewood with Vice President Mike Pence.

In an effort to speed up the distribution of desperately needed hospital masks, President Donald Trump issued an order Thursday mandating that 3M sell the Federal Emergency Management Agency as many N95 respirator masks as the agency says it needs.

The order to help meet FEMA's needs comes under the Defense Production Act, which the president invoked a week ago.
