Seems appropriate to me although I would have just confiscated them like the US did for Canadian bound masks. Screw them if they won't help the country that is helping them with cheap labor.

The factory is a export only factory and they are legally correct. The factory is not allowed to sell in Mexico. The company is US based but parent corporation is a UK company. Sometimes things are not black and white as folks would like them.

Well if the guys that make the laws are asking them to sell domestically I don't see that being a problem. No?

If neighboring Countries can not help each other out in a Pandemic what has the World come to?
Trump is the master of chaos and confusion not much else.

Maybe it should have said "U" people... standing for University educated... aka usually someone with a brain that is capable of rational thought.

Are you asking what the President of the U.S. has to do with how the country interacts with other countries and deals with a world-wide pandemic?
