Within 48 hours of painstakingly calling leads and potential suppliers, the union discovered a distributor who had the 39 million masks, and has since found another supplier who says his company can produce 20 million more masks a week. The union also has found a supplier who can deliver millions of face shields.

I can’t comment on the price discrepancy, but they weren’t sitting on a secret stash.

Either the SEIU was hoarding them, or the distributor was hoarding them. Supplier was not identified, so that is a big red flag of a fake supplier.

They say they have no financial interest, but selling a 4x resale price, so at best they are price gouging.

I could see the SEIU hoarding masks to make a shortage, then setting up a fake supplier to hide the fact they already had the masks as there is no valid reason why they would call around looking for suppliers for masks from suppliers who were already making masks.

They either did it to try to hurt Trump, or they did it just to make 156 million (39 million times $4 profit per mask.)

Trump should say "so you don't know where these came.from, how do we know you own them, we'll just confiscate this unknown owners property". And there you go, free donated masks from these POS hoarders
