  Trump's battle with 3M on masks escalates over US exports 3M Co. pushed back against a request from the Trump administration to halt exports of protective face masks, saying the move would cut off critical supplies for neighboring countries and raise “significant” humanitarian concerns. The manufacturer said Friday that it was asked by the White House to stop sending U.S.-made respirators elsewhere in North America in favor of boosting domestic supplies. 3M currently produces 35 million masks a month from a pair of U.S. factories, which serve customers across North America.

Thousands protested, many wearing masks , as the clock ticked toward the ban taking effect, and clashes broke out around the city. Teresa Cheng, the secretary for justice, said the government would send the new face mask regulation for review by the legislature, which has the power to block it.
