As Americans die Trump not to issue national mask mandate
Asked by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace if he would consider issuing a national mask mandate to slow the spread of the virus, Trump said: "No, I want people to have a certain freedom and I don't believe in that, no," according to a clip of the Fox News Sunday show, the full version of which will be aired on Sunday.
"I don't agree with the statement that if everyone wore a mask, everything disappears," the president added, as Wallace pointed out that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the virus would be brought under control if everyone wore a mask.
"Dr. Fauci said don't wear a mask, our surgeon general terrific guy said don't wear a mask. Everybody was saying don't wear a mask, all of a sudden everybody's got to wear a mask," Trump said. "And as you know, masks cause problems too. With that being said, I am a believer in masks. I think masks are good." ■
