President Donald Trump, tweeted an picture of himself wearing a face masks and referred to as the act “patriotic”, Social distancing himself away from his well know reluctance to put on a face mask covering in the public during the COVID19 Pandemic.
According to reports, Trump’s choice to inspire masks-wearing became motivated by the poor numbers as majority americans dont approve of the way he has handled the Coronavirus pandemic.
According to reports, Trump’s team tried to get Trump to wear a mask, saying they could have “MAGA”, “Trump-Pence 2020” or even the American flag printed on them but he refused and only wore a mask once in public.
His thoughts changed after a meeting with the campaign aides at the white house last week. where they bluntly told him poll numbers showed Americans didn’t approve of his Coronavirus response.
“We are United in our attempt to defeat the Invisible China Virus,and many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face mask when you can’t socially distance,” Trump tweeted on Monday night , three months after the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended wearing masks in public.
“There is nobody more Patriotic than me, your favorite President!” he added.
On a trip to a Ford plant in May, Trump said he wore a mask on parts of the plant tour where reporters were not allowed, saying he “didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it.”
Remember in April during a press Trump suggested that it wouldn’t seem presidential to don a mask.
“(S)omehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful Resolute Desk … I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens. I don’t know, somehow I don’t see it for myself. Maybe I’ll change my mind,” Trump said at the time.
