The head of Florida’s Division of Emergency Management has accused U.S. mask manufacturer 3M of shipping the critical protective equipment to foreign countries who outbid U.S. buyers — even as hospitals and state officials desperately scramble to secure N95 protective masks for healthcare workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

Jared Moskowitz told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday that he discovered that 3M distributors were prioritizing foreign buyers after they refused to sell him the essential equipment.

The article goes on to state the following:

“For the last several weeks, we have had a boiler room chasing down 3M authorized distributors [and] brokers representing that they sell the N95 masks, only get to warehouses that are completely empty,” Moskowitz said. “[We are] being told that our shipments are on cargo planes and the flights don’t even appear. We are chasing ghosts. I just decided to turn up the heat and tell people what is actually happening in the N95 mask space.”

Moskowitz told Carlson many American companies quietly partnering with foreign buyers at a time of national crisis.

He tweeted earlier on Thursday, “.@3M @3MNews please tell me this is #FakeNews. The stories of foreign governments showing up to factories with cash to jump ahead in the line is something I hear from your authorized distributors.”

In another tweet, Moskowitz pounded 3M again, tweeting, “.@3M Hello again. Director of @FLSERT here. I have money, you have masks yet you won’t sell them to me. Stop selling to foreign governments.”

President Trump responded after the broadcast, tweeting, “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!”

Trump announced at the press briefing on Thursday that he had just signed an act against 3M to force them to produce face masks for Americans.
