The question is is 3m just selling to highest bidders pitting bidder against bidder.. Holding sock rather than filling orders n getting gravy profits

“Trump’s order” issued at the behest of a demand by pelosi and Schumer. The media was on board with this literally yesterday!

This stuff should not be highest bidder. But if we need supplies from Canada, we can negotiate good trade for some of the masks. No I'm not worried about 3m profits, they should be called out for this during National emergency.

3M is free to sell or not sell to whomever they wish. They can put profit ahead people if they want. Its a free country. We are free to stop purchasing their goods if we disagree with their choices. We cannot let this pandemic erode the foundations of this great country. I believe 3M will meet all American orders for masks. If they dont, I will stop buying their stuff.

Isn't 3M a private company that can sell to who they want to? So unless the head a__hole tRump hasn't ordered them to produce under the DPA, they can make for both countries. Its called human kindness.

Of ocurse they do. They don't want to miss out on those nice profits. Too bad they got a president that actually puts the American people first, unlike his predecessor.

All countries need domestic manufacturing of their essential public needs rather than b+tch about why they aren't put above US's own population. Take this as a good omen, because now most functional societies will re-invest in their manufacturing due to urgency of this situation, and everyone will be more prosperous for it.
