During the early stages of coronavirus spreading across America in February, Trump said on record it is just another virus easy to eradicate. But it went on to kill more than 200,000 Americans and infecting more than seven million. And even now, more than 1,000 Americans die every day due to it.
Even after Trump’s ally and former Republican presidential candidate, Herman Cain died of coronavirus in July. Trump did not consider wearing the mask seriously. He even commented on record that wearing a mask shows weakness. Even after the WHO and CDC confirming wearing masks is better to prevent COVID 19 ailment than a vaccine, Trump continued not to wear a mask.
There were reports with photographs of his closest aide Hope Hicks getting out of the Air Force One on Tuesday without wearing a mask after hours of travel with the president. It is evident that the president would not have also worn the mask on Air Force One.
