GOP Sen Suggests Trump Wear Mask

'Wear a mask!': Republicans change tune as Covid-19 cases surge in the US

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Monday that President Donald Trump should issue an executive order mandating that people wear masks in public and he should lead by example and cover his face.

Earlier this month, the Republican National Convention changed its location from an arena in Charlotte, North Carolina, because officials in that state insisted on face masks and social distancing, against the wishes of President Trump. At an event in Texas this weekend, Mike Pence said that "wearing a mask is just a good idea", and that "we know, from experience, will slow the spread of the coronavirus".

On Sunday, Alexander told CNN that it would "help" if the President wore a mask to stop the political debate surrounding the matter as coronavirus cases surge in several cities.

Doocy even suggested an updated play on Trump's campaign slogan.

This is due to a 97% rate of mask wearing, according to Yuen Kwok-Yung, a leading coronavirus expert who advises the Hong Kong government and who said the 3% who don't comply are mainly Americans and Europeans.

Wearing non-medical grade face masks in public settings, such as grocery stores and gas stations, where social distancing measures are hard to maintain is recommended to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The untold truth of Bubba Wallace's girlfriend
NASCAR was among the top-three trending topics on Twitter in the US on Monday, with supporters of Wallace using the hashtag #IStandWithBubba.

"Yes, we have to get the economy going but reopening fast was not good for the economy", Cuomo said. Look, anecdotally, I was in the epicenter of this. I went to my grocery store every week. A number of Republican lawmakers have also endorsed mask-wearing in recent days.

"Everyone should just wear a damn mask", GOP Sen.

"As a diplomat living in New York, I feel this is my privilege and also an obligation to join hands with everybody here to fight this pandemic, shoulder by shoulder", said Chinese Consul General in New York Huang Ping at a virtual handover ceremony. In Palm Beach county in Florida, which is now fining people $250 for not wearing a mask, a public feedback forum last week featured residents falsely claiming that masks kill people, that they impede "God's wonderful breathing system" and that they are a politically-motivated tool created to kill off freedoms. The president has millions of admirers.

Mitch McConnell tweeted his support of mask-wearing Monday, writing: "We must have no stigma, none, about wearing masks when we leave our homes and come near other people". "Wearing simple face coverings is not about protecting ourselves".

Well over a dozen states and Washington, DC, have mandated mask-wearing in public spaces, and polling has repeatedly shown a strong majority of Americans support wearing face-coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
