He says he would have “no problem” wearing a mask.
LPresident Donald Trump, who has never been seen wearing a mask in public, said on Wednesday that he would “have no problem” wearing one, while reaffirming his conviction that the coronavirus would “disappear” at “A certain moment”.
“It wouldn’t be a problem for me (…) If I were in close proximity to people, I would,” he said on Fox Business when several regions of the United States recorded a dramatic increase in the number of Covid-19 cases.
“Most of the time, I am not in this situation,” he said, however, stressing that all the people he met were tested in advance.
“I’m all for masks, I think masks are a good thing,” he said again, while being doubtful about the idea of making them mandatory at the national level. “There are many places in the country where people stay very far away” from each other, he said.
An upset campaign
The political and health fiasco in the fight against the pandemic falls on the image of Donald Trump, unable to become a crisis leader. His Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, leads the polls.
