Why did Trump award an N95 mask contract to a bankrupt company with no employees that has never made masks?

The Trump administration awarded an N95 mask procurement contract worth eight times the usual price to a bankrupt company with no employees which has never even manufactured the respirator masks, according to a new report.

The company, Panthera, claims to provide tactical training and "mission support" for the Department of Defense and other government agencies. However, it has no experience with manufacturing or medical equipment, The Washington Post reported this week. Panthera's parent company filed for bankruptcy in the fall, and it has not employed anyone since May 2018.

    It's a repeat of the no-bid, $300-million contract he gave Whitefish Energy to repair Puerto Rico's entire power grid after Hurricane Maria, Whitefish Energy a three-year-old company in Montana of 17 employees, none of whom had ever been to Puerto Rico and none of whom had any experience with any job even a hundredth of the size of what the contract was for.  Trump's incompetence knows no bounds and has no bashfulness at all about repeating itself over and over and over again.

    And if they had taken the time to thoroughly vet every vendor people would have been criticizing Trump for not acting fast enough.
