Trump takes his war on masks to new heights

Democratic U.S. presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden is seen at War Memorial Plaza during Memorial Day amid the outbreak of the coronavirus disease, in New Castle Delaware

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden continues to deal with controversy from attack on black voters that support President Trump; reaction on 'The Five'.

"It is a bit peculiar, though, that in his basement, right next to his wife, he's not wearing a mask".

Trump has openly refused to wear a face mask.

U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump depart the White House for Baltimore, Maryland on May 25.

The president did not wear a mask to a Memorial Day ceremony in Arlington National Ceremony on Monday, marking a contrast with his likely 2020 rival.

Gifford previously shared an image of Biden and his wife walking to lay their wreath describing it as: "Responsible".

Trump did not directly comment on the photo, but Politico reports he has been accused of provoking a "culture war" over the wearing of face masks. For Trump, who believes that every reporter interrogating him is out to undermine him, being photographed with a mask is victory for the press and defeat for him.

Trump said: "I wasn't criticising him".

CEO buys struggling New Zealand media company for $1
The New Zealand High Court last week declined an interim injunction sought by NZME that could have delayed the sale to Boucher. She was hoping that the fact Stuff was now locally owned meant customers and readers would support the company.

Trump is not the only state leader to be seen publicly not wearing a face mask, as reported by Newsweek previously, with a number seen not doing so during engagements in recent months.

The interview, conducted in Mr Biden's garden and with social distancing measures in place, followed Memorial Day ceremonies on Monday in which Mr Biden wore a mask and Mr Trump was bare-faced.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the wearing of cloth face coverings in public settings such as shops and petrol stations.

As the country approaches the terrible milestone of 100,000 deaths caused by COVID-19, and with some 38.6 million Americans made jobless by the crisis, Trump is intensifying his push to jumpstart the United States economy.

What they're saying: "In the face of COVID-19 we're seeing without any doubt how important unions are to this country - fighting for their workers to have personal protective equipment, for paid leave, and for safer workplaces", Biden wrote in a statement reacting to the endorsement. While more than 379,000 are said to have recovered, according to the statistics.

But May polling has shown that a majority of Americans worry that states are opening too quickly.

US states with the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.
