During Monday’s Coronavirus Task Force briefing, President Donald Trump welcomed MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell on stage to discuss his company’s operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lindell, a longtime ally of the president, said his company has been working to "address current and future needs of U.S. businesses across multiple sectors."

The Minnesota businessman also announced his company has been working to make cotton face masks.

Lindell says he hopes to see his company making 50,000 masks a day by Friday.

"I’m proud to manufacture our products in the state and I’m even more proud to be able to serve our nation in this great time of need," he said.
