Donald Trump Wears Mask In Public For First Time~NEWSEXTRA




President of the United States of America, Donald Trump wore a mask in public for the first time during a visit to a military hospital a short helicopter ride from the White House on Saturday evening.

The president’s decision to wear a mask came as cases of coronavirus surged to record levels in the US and after aides and experts urged Trump to follow his own government’s guidelines on face coverings.


 
Trump flew to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in suburban Washington DC to meet wounded service members and health care providers caring for Covid-19 patients.

Donald Trump was wearing a black mask as he walked down the entryway of Walter Reed medical centre accompanied by hospital staff, marking the first time he has been seen wearing a protective face-covering in public.

The president did not stop to take questions from the White House pool before turning down a hallway.

His meeting with injured troops and staff is closed to the press.

The only other time Trump was spotted wearing a mask was behind the scenes during a tour of a Ford plant in Michigan back in May.

“I think when you’re in a hospital, especially in that particular setting where you’re talking to a lot of soldiers and people that in some cases just got off the operating tables, I think it’s a great thing to wear a mask,” Trump said before boarding Marine One en route to the hospital. “I’ve never been against masks, but I do believe they have a time and a place.”
