Maria Bartiromo Questions 3M CEO Mike Roman About Selling Healthcare Masks To Foreign Governments…

Everything you would ever need to know about a slimy multinational corporate executive is laid out in this interview with 3M CEO Mike Roman.  While answering questions globalist Roman tries to hide what 3M is doing by stuttering and stammering around cover words.

Keep in mind, 3M is a U.S. owned company doing manufacturing business inside China. However, Beijing took control over 3M and nationalized their manufacturing facilities.  But Roman doesn’t want to admit what happened. Listen carefully at 03:00:

“we have produced millions of respirators and now we have arranged to import more masks from China.  We have an agreement to allow us to export ten million additional masks a month out of China”…

      Yeah, I think my opinion of a once great Minnesota company has just gone out the window. These corporatists really really do suck. I am going to buy my glue, tape and….masks for somewhere else from now on.
      There motto was always, make it by the mile and sell it by the inch, and their prices were always high. Now their prices are still high and their new motto is now, make is somewhere else, lets screw America.

        When I was apprenticing in the Sign Trade in the 70’s & when I had my own Sign Company during the 80’s, EVERYONE used 3M products, because they were of such good quality that they had no competion! For example ALL the Body Shops used 3M Scotch Brand masking tape, as it was the ONLY masking tape on the market that paint would hot “bleed under”. If you don’t have to do a job over again, it’s worth the extra cost.

        Nowadays, I see that Frog tape is popular amoung the trades, BUT 3M is still the best on the market.

        To all you young people out there, you will never learn stuff like this at your Liberal Arts Universites from your Communist Professors! Maybe just maybe, young people will realize that you are at a hell of a disadvantage starting out life with a $100,000 student loan debt & a degree that you or your parents paid $100,000 for, that may not even get you a job in your chosen field. It will be hard to pay back that loan, when you have to say “Do you want fries with that”?

        Yes, I know that Sign-Painting is a dead trade, BUT after this China Virus Scam is over, there will be a great demand for Skilled Trades that pay $50,000/yr. just to start RIGHT AWAY! Think about that & keep in mind that Plumbers make house-calls to lonely housewives whose husbands are not there!

        I hope that 3M will learn from this experience & get rid of all the Globalists on their B of D & tell CHINA to go Fuk themselves & return to America.

      Which part of Roman’s statement, “agreement to allow us to export ten million additional masks a month out of China” are you misunderstanding?

      Roman was keeping production in China.
      There is nothing in Roman’s statement that indicates a current effort inside 3M to physically manufacture N95 masks in America.

      Roman’s insistence upon the “agreement” is to distract people from the fact that China nationalized 3M’s manufacturing plant in China where Roman expects to get his 3M N95 masks for America.

      How long does it take to set up a production/assembly line to assemble N95 masks?
      3M should have the fabrics and ventilators on hand.

      Cutting the fabrics to size should be easy to set up. Especially if 3M already has or can lease fabric cutting lines.
      Putting together N95 masks is not rocket science!

      Basically, there is no reason 3M could not do exactly what MyPillow did, on a much larger scale.

      Quite likely, Roman is strictly an administrator.
      Leadership or risk taking not required.
      If Roman did anything it was to ask direct reports for analyses on options and what the investors think; all while thinking how to downplay China nationalizing industries to those same investors.

      Meaning, Roman was likely weeks away from getting those reports and from the board meeting where decisions are made.

      Odds are that the next 3M board meeting discusses replacing Roman.
      Failed to respond timely to America’s needs.
      Failed to prevent China nationalizing 3M manufacturing facilities.

      A nationalization possibly triggered by Roman or his representative stating something about 3M’s agreement with China to export N95 masks; when China came calling to get a higher proportion of the masks.
      China can be infuriatingly patient when pursuing their plots, yet exhibit zero patience when China is in a hurry.

        You get the picture? China First.

        Maria didn’t ask about cash sales.

          Sadly, China would bring this country to its knees overnight if they quit sending us product. There are darn few products that can be made in this country without Chinese machines, components, electronics, etc.

          So PDJT is making a trade deal to give the US a better deal, while we embark on the decades long task of decoupling essential manufacturing from overseas.

      I agree but I think it is much worse than that.3M admitted they sold to other markets and these distributors in early 2020 to Maria.Then tried to justify it because it happened before DPA. Are you telling me the company who had direct connections to Chinese authorities and had their Chinese plants nationalized didn’t know what was soon coming to American shores? My TDS radar just went off.Is it possible 3M was working to undermine our president and support the resistance? Is this why president Trump pulled DPA on 3M? This sends a strong message. Don’t mess with our president and the American people.

    Roman spent considerable time boasting how essential they are. That’s a call for a competition, perhaps small manufacturers, with government assistance. 3M makes a lot of medical products, and it would be nice for several diversified manufacturers to take a big BITE out of that market share.

    One other thing. Trump has been reluctant to use the DPA unless absolutely necessary and the very fact that they have against 3M kind of says it all. Early on the leftist press and democrats were screaming about declaring it and applying it but it’s turned out that so far that where and to whom it is being applied is not what they imagined. GM and now 3M. It really would be funny if it weren’t so serious.

Or of some Boy Scouts — Be Prepared. The folks in charge of these sorts of preparations like the ones that told Cuomo he needed more ventilators dropped the ball somewhere along the line. Perhaps they did all they could and the media didn’t listen.

    More likely, the American companies don’t want to have large quantities of items in stock, “just in case,” because of the extra expenses. Property taxes on storage facilities, personal property taxes on inventory, and spoilage to name a few. Time to change the taxes that certain items of emergency preparedness should be exempt from taxation. Let people build up reserves without fear that they will have to pay more than the initial cost.

Are there warehouses someplace where our Department of State (or *whoever*) has been shipping PPE?

      While meanwhile, a highly skilled nurse in Knoxville TN quit, and called the media, because she was being asked to re-use masks multiple times, directly against instructions she had been given weeks earlier as best practice.

      Dr. Zelensky is absolutely correct, you don’t want to end up in a hospital if you can help it. Hospitals have infection control problems, and they don’t have sufficient PPE for staff who may be infected also. What a cluster.

        LA TIMES last week – Critical

        California Businessman / Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was sickened at the difficulties he saw in other states regarding Emergencies & lack of emergency equipment. Ergo, he acquired 3 major mobile hospitals and supplies- including 23,000 beds & 2,400 ventilators.

        In a budget shortfall, Gov Jerry Brown (aka Moonbeam) dispersed the equipment & some was sold off – reportedly to save $1.5M a year in rent & maintenance.

        Gavin Newsom traveled to Central America to promote illegal immigration & suggest Central American surf tourism (?), but apparently never increased his emergency supplies.

    He references it would be a humanitarian issue for 3M to not deliver to Canada & another country. A few minutes later he then in passing swings back to the humanitarian issue only this time he credits Maria with originally bringing it up. The 3rd time he speaks about the humanitarian issue, he again states that as long as everyone realizes the humanitarian issue that will arise in Canada if 3M doesn’t deliver. Maria (on top of it as ever) asks him….what about the American HCW who will suffer without the N95s. This arse repeatedly says he is glad the Defense Act has clarified and basically made the decision of 3M.

    This guy & 3M have no loyalty to USA. In the future 3M needs strong competition in the area of N95s. I’m sure The Boss is on it.

    If you did not realize there are multiple scales of justice in this country, you should have by now. It is disgusting.

    So, NOW you people are saying “no more 3M for me?
    When Mpls became the Somali capital of the US and 3M is a major employer of unskilled assembly labor, who did you think 3M was hiring?
    When I returned from Vietnam, most business didn’t want to hire veterans because they didn’t want to be associated with “that” war.
    I got a job in electronics assembly because it was what I could get and in those days you had to pay your own bills rather than get a gov’t subsidy.
    They had a large group of Vietnamese refugees working there and when we cashed our checks at the local store, I saw that the Vietnamese were making 50% more than I was.

    When I asked about this I was told that their pay rate was the same but the company gets a subsidy from the Fed gov’t for hiring “under-employed refugees” and has to pass it on to them.
    I’ll bet big bucks (I didn’t stay in that line of work) that 3M has been getting a Fed subsidy for hiring all these Somali that have destroyed Mpls.
    I’d like to see what 3M pays Iraq and Afghan war veterans compared to the Somali.
    Our gov’t has been corrupt for a long, long time.

    I restore antiques and I often use all of 3M’s products not anymore, listen to him stammer his way through the interview where was he in China kissing the Dingdongwong’s backside? China has taken control of his business does he really think they’ll just let him take control back once China has nationalized it? China will make Russia look like a pussy cat when they’re done stealing private industry to meet their greed and need. Remember when Russia took control of American businesses and they could do nothing to stop it, well that’s the future for American globalist businesses.

      Yeah he is full of crap about the US standards.

      Last month I ordered 2 cases of 3M orbital buffing pads, at a premium price over the ChiCom ones available locally. When they arrived – absolutely identical to the cheaper ones I bought locally. 3M box labeled made in China.

        All too often, sellers fail to print the country of origin on products. This is especially true in advertisements. Otherwise, for products that can be seen, China or whatever is in really fine print, if at all. When I see an established USA brand name, a red flag goes up. “Made in USA” means something. I will accept stuff made in Taiwan or other places if nothing domestic is available. Otherwise, I will just do without or wait.

          During the 80’s, a friend who owned JB Distributors ( an Industrial Tool & Equipment Supplier) pointed out to me the difference that he saw between his China & Taiwan products.

          In his Bench Grinders, the Chinese were use sleeve-bearings & the Taiwanese were using ball-bearings with races. Jack said at the time, that the Taiwanese were starting to up their quality, compared to the Chinese.

          Nowadays, look at where the best-quality higher-end products are from in that part of the World, & they always come from Taiwan, not China!

          I think that this may be the main reason that China & Taiwan don’t get along.

    well, listening to that was painful. An empty suit put up on that post by the globalists – he has all the “multinational” talking points now falling in around him.

    Crystal clear example why the globalists and central bankers banks love to control markets, create monopolies and manufacture in China. All was poised to take America down for good, until Donald Trump and his Deplorables.

    He is your typical globalist tyrant. Worried more about humanitarian problems in Canada and Latin America than his own country.
