Coronavirus: Donald Trump finally wears mask in public
The US president previously said he could not see himself wearing a mask in public.
"I think it's a great thing to wear a mask," the president saidUS President Donald Trump has worn a mask in public for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.The president was visiting the Walter Reed military hospital outside Washington, where he met wounded soldiers and health care workers.
"I've never been against masks but I do believe they have a time and a place," he said as he left the White House.He has previously said that he would not wear a mask and mocked Democratic rival Joe Biden for doing so.But on Saturday he said:"I think when you're in a hospital, especially in that particular setting, where you're talking to a lot of soldiers and people that, in some cases, just got off the operating tables, I think it's a great thing to wear a mask."
'I'm all for masks,' says Trump in change of toneSpeaking to Fox Business Network last week, Mr Trump said:"I'm all for masks."He added that he"sort of liked" how he looked with one on, likening himself to the Lone Ranger, a fictional masked hero who with his Native American friend, Tonto, fought outlaws in the American Old West.
Why we should all be wearing face masksBut when the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in April began recommending people wear masks or cloth coverings in public to help stop the spread of the virus, Mr Trump told reporters he would not follow the practice.
"I don't think I'm going to be doing it," he said back then."Wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens - I just don't see it."Some media reports have suggested aides have repeatedly asked the president to wear one in public.

Louisiana has become the latest state to order that masks be worn in public.Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards also ordered the closure of bars across Louisiana, and tightened restrictions on restaurants, which will no longer be able to serve customers inside. The measures come into effect on Monday.
State Republican lawmakers are expected to oppose the move."If you don't like the mask mandate, then don't like it while you wear your mask," Governor Edwards said."If you want to be mad at me about it, then be mad at me about it."
Neighbouring Texas has recorded another rise of coronavirus infections, with a record 10,500 new cases recorded on Saturday.The governor of South Carolina has issued an order banning sales of alcohol after 23:00 in bars and restaurants to try to stop the spread of the virus.
A court in Indiana has halted the execution of a convicted killer as the victim's relatives said they were worried about travelling during the pandemic to watch him die. Daniel Lee was set to be executed on Monday in what would have been the first federal execution in 17 years.

Hi doesn’t believe the face mask can safe life... It’s an improvement!!!!! Unless it prevents him speaking I ain’t interested! Is that the Lone Ranger🔫🔫 Can't believe they had special one made, morons Improvement Why? When is someone gonna shoot this guy Hopefully to cover up the stitches from having his mouth sewn shut .
Always making story about Trump. What about the fact that from Janiary through to June WHO told us we do not need masks. Wow.....breaking news......I think not!!!! Charlotte0192 Domestos not really doing the trick? Pass the Chloroform Adam & the ants - stand & deliver starts playing in my mind Never thought I'd say it 'Thank you'donaldtrump FaceMasks publichealth StaySafe
If only there were masks for his thumbs Because he is infected johnsweeneyroar About bloody time! TENES QUE DAR EL EJEMPLO.- AQUI ESTAMOS CON LA DOCTRINA MONROE: ''''''AMERICA PARA LOS AMERICANOS Y LATINOAMERICANOS''''Y ESTAMOS DE LA MANO CON EL PUEBLO NORTEAMERICANO EL MAS PODEROSO DEL MUNDO.- So what! How many souls have died in the US because if realDonaldTrump complacency and stupidity. How many people are in hospital with covid-19. Meanwhile headliner is Trump wears a mask! Dick Turpin wore a mask. Cummings buddies PJ Masks wear masks!
Great to see him finally act like a grown up but this “news” is as sad and pathetic as watching a crowd of people cheer him on for drinking a glass of water with one hand. Trump,proper muzzled!! Ahh,that's more like it trump,one way to keep you quiet !!!🤣 Whats the point he's a tad late BBC is BBC that every news outlet in the world will be covering this story.
Who wants to tell him he is five months late Well look at the Lone Ranger..... Who fixes his makeup when he takes it off ? Let’s face it, anything that covers the guys mouth is a good thing Looks like the Lone Ranger to me 😂 He looks beautiful in the mask, Ivanka made a nice choice for him though. Shame the face mask only stops droplets and not bullshit
Good looking. Like hero It’s the Lone Ranger! Polls must have said people are willing to accept wearing masks, ever the populist!! JohnsonTheDitherer TooLittleTooLate JohnsonsDemocide Thoughts and prayers are with the mask at this difficult time. This isn’t news!! It took 130,000+ deaths before he wore one, so let’s not go mad with news coverage of what is almost certainly a PR stunt to boost his polling numbers because his team have suddenly realised that railing against wearing a mask isn’t working for him.
It doesn't improve him at all It’s a bit big he only needs this one He bears no resemblance to The Lone Ranger! He needs gagging Spot the difference Now even less chance of knowing if it is the 'real one'. We used to rely on the facial expressions or the stupid stuff he said, with a mask on and silent we have no chance.
A bag next 😂 Darth Vader? ... , anyway ... What’s the point. Absolutely no need for face masks. This is not serious news its garden fence gossip 사랑해요 사랑해요 사랑해 A Hannibal Lecter mask would be more his style. “A court in Indiana has halted the execution of a convicted killer as the victim's relatives said they were worried about travelling during the pandemic to watch him die. Daniel Lee was set to be executed on Monday in what would have been the first federal execution in 17 years.”
No the mask is still not quite right, we can still see his cretinous face. All the things in the world and BBC headlines Trump wears a mask. Can BBC news sink any lower Sorry Improvement Fec, it’s Dick Turpin 🤠 What a shame 😞 Is this to stop his brain from falling out? Is that who it is? Wow - who knew? Idiot
Nothing interesting or informative here. Struggling for content BBC? Time to cancel the licence fee and stop wasting my cash on this useless organisation. Where was the headline like this when Johnson “finally” wore a mask I don't know what all the fuss is about, he's worn one before hasn't he. This doesn't make him a hero but an arrogant c*nt who probably has covid-19
Where can I buy a mask with the presidential seal on it like this?! and now the mask has filled a sexual harassment case Sure that’s not his team gagging him? Hi ho Silver, away! Wonder who forced him to wear it? Just needs one for his hair now..😷😷 Spot the difference....... Politicians will dress up as clowns for a few extra votes. It might work for some sheep but not me.
He wore it in a Hospital! Where key workers save lives! Let’s wait until he walks down a street or at a rally or around the White House wearing one! Then give him a lollipop 🍭! A great improvement on what he looked like without it. 'I think when you're in a hospital, especially in that particular setting.' TRUMP
he ain't no lone ranger. MARK OF THE BEAST He was waiting for it to be made with the presidential seal on it . It had to be shipped from China . He would be successful as a court jester, maybe. As a President, he is an idiot. He's just run out of bronzer, it's white underneath. He does look better. 😁 Mask has agent orange self tanning mechanism whilst worn known as the AOSM mask for delusion narcissistic morons
Sort of So ive heard..... Could he not wear a bigger mask? Preferably one that muffles his talking completely? He’d probably bought shares in a company who make them Hi Ho Silver Away What the Chinese achieved by their Virus to the western economy was to retaliate for western sanctions against China 🤑, so quick and deadly effective 😂😂🤧😎
The man is a total prick...👊 But these over promoted, dangerously indulged, reckless politicians don’t do gesture politics - right? BorisHasFailed PotusHasFailed *Covid is KILLING people* This must be such a betrayal to all his knuckle dragging supporters who refuse to wear one because it’s unamerican.
The same as the UK, months of saying don't wear masks, then having to U turn when they're proved wrong It’s an improvement but does it stop the shit that comes out of his mouth ? Wore a mask to deflect attention from his freeing of Stone. 1...about time... 2... Suits him. 3. Any chance we can get it to stop his incoherent nonsense rambling.....maybe gorilla glue it on?
To the tune of the imperial march (Star Wars Vader theme): DUMB DUMB DUMB, dumb dumb Dumb, dumb dumb Dumb, DUMB DUMB DUMB, dUMB dumb dumb, DuMb Dumb Dumb. Ahh - but how do we know it’s really him? Bit too late mate - its rife in US Have the wounded soldiers in hospital not suffered enough? Are you sure that’s Donald Trump? looks like the Lone Ranger to me
I so wanted him to wear a Lone Ranger mask 🙁 😂😂 election are coming Yes but who cares! An improvement in so many ways. This prooves Donald Trump is not in charge of the situation. He is under control of others. DefundTheBBC But he said it would fade away. Another photo stunt A true leader Watch my lips And he wore it like a petulant toddler who just had an epic tantrum. Look at that pathetic 'poor me' scowl. A leader would have at least tried to set a positive example, but Trump is not a leader.
Gaaawd he looks so much better I’ll do your mandatory mask in stores but take your vaccines and shove em!!! Oh I can’t believe it. WTG ... Way to lead by example 45!! I am so glad that you took President Obama’s lead and are wearing a mask. It looks like a bad photoshop He has done us all a favour, I was beginning to get tired of the sight of his face! 😂
Trump always thought wearing a mask was for an authoritarian country. Now trump is going to be authoritarian too? If Trump had worn a mask earlier, many americans would not have died tragically. It's like that time I started wearing suncream 5 days into the heatwave. Let’s hope someone put Superglue in it!
Because he knows this virus KILLS AMERICANS It’s not politics is protecting yourself and others He’s never going to get it About time too. That's all I'm saying. Batman 👏👏👏👏👏👏🖕 The Batman 😂 can we find one that permanently blocks his mouth? maybe covering the eyes too Coronavirus news aside. Trump finally wears a mask! Now if we could just find him a muzzle....
👍 Watch who wears masks and doesn't. With questions, are we standing ground to a attention hungry health care system or solving a problem that can spread with simple honest mistakes. Whose wearing masks good looking people or not? Is there probability individuals want it to spread? of course he is, he's visiting a hospital!!!!!
Masks make sure your identity, or a leading marker of your individuality, is hidden. How anyone can trust the so called 'scientific evidence' about the wearing of masks when it's changing from week to week is beyond me. But Trump's been got to, somehow. Wearing masks is not a social statement and should not be abused in pop culture. This is an embarrassment solution to a problem that has to come to a resolution soon. On the same level as a telethon or charity with no actual informative information.
He finally acknowledged that some MAGA fans are dying If you blow your load and then pull your condom out of your wallet, does it even matter? finally😂 Reason you do not wear a mask in a private residency is you know the whole environment you are in. You know everyone you are interacting with.. My suggestion is only go out if you have to and that includes sooth mental health. Excuse it is not worth going places wearing masks.
Horses. Bolted. Finally. WearAMask Too little too late. As usual... The 'Masked moron' Of course he is visiting a medical center. But f your out in the world mask. Bye the way when they get a vaccine they will have to shoot ya up with the virus 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Why? Did he test positive? Well this is awkward...
Maybe he should cover his whole head ! lol Yes he’s wearing the mask or he wouldn’t be able to go in the hospital plus he’s DESPERATELY got to get his image up One thing I hope that will come out of this is how he became president. I hope it will be studied and kept present for as long as needs, to make sure it will never happen again.
Wow A vast improvement for so many reasons. Wrong! Get your damn facts straight before putting out FakeNews! Quite an improvement He looks great. Not true he has wore a mask before this is fakenews. Masks are not compulsory to the compliance idiots. Could he also cover the rest of his face Ona bişey olmaz
Report on something more important like sex trafficking. The MSM is pathetic Fcough Fake news 😳🤣🤣😳 Finally? defundBBC Wouldn't this mask be more appropriate for him? Too late ! Getting it yet folks. The gullible have been HAD! 😂😂😂😂👏👏👏👏👏👏 'finally' ffs nothing like giving a slant The propaganda continues. Even Vodafone have them in their new ads on TV. Blatant mind control 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
And he looks so happy about it. It's a first time. And the Chinese wait while America blames America Damn was hoping he’d get it Why the word 'finally' Wearing a mask, drinking water, & walking on a ramp are not on anyone’s resume. That this is a “success” after so many dead, so many lives & families disrupted, our economy in shambles, & our kids saddled with his debt. Hold him accountable for worst disaster in US History!!!
The updated Wokecyclopedia has now declared wearing masks, Racist Hate Speech. STOP.WEARING.MASKS. Lol Isn't Corona Virus 'FAKE' LOL 🤔🤫🤭😅🤣😂 Too late he's let out too much poison now. So hope Biden gets in. Quicker we see the back of this gimmicky clown of a president the better Why is this even news FFS 🙄
I wonder if his breath smells orange too 👍🏾 great sir. Show good example and encourage others to do same He looks stupid. *Finally* One word makes a difference Once more you prove your inability to be impartial. Subjective opinion is not what you're PAID to do. DefundtheBBC It's sad that Trump wearing a mask is a big deal. He should be wearing one all the time.
that's Ted Koppel Coronavirus: orange man finally wears mask in public Full face mask would be better!! Oh! Did he buy the company? First time. Never bow to the mob. There will never appreciate you. I’ll do your mandatory maskin stores but take your vaccines and shove em!!! Funny how this is a headline 🤣 and has an entire page dedicated to it
Just Show Six months late and with more than 135,000 deaths, but OK. TrumpPandemicFailure TrumpDeathToll136K That is an awful big mask. I think that it is Stones underwear. Looks like it could be! fearporn The president said he looks like the Lone Ranger in his mask , He doesn’t more like Hannibal lector.
Mommy wow! Im a big boy now. What about London where the BBC Are based?..Sadiq Khan? “Finally” - yet you didn’t DREAM on criticising Boris for not wearing one until yesterday. You could have mentioned it days/weeks ago. Yes we aren’t anywhere near as bad as USA - yet. Why not get AHEAD of the curve unlike last time?
Photo Op He probably tested positive Why 😝 It is a miracle .... officialHJesus was you ? Or was the polls ? DefundTheBBC It's almost as if the media are making mask wearing about brow beating people into submission 🤔. DefundTheBBC He should shut his mouth much earlier! Probably just for the photos, like with the bible.
But, will the British macho do the same? BorisJohnson 5 1/2 months later he starts listening to the scientists. He just wants to have the Republican Conversation and the Coronavirus numbers aren’t looking good for Fl. But what about BountyGate y'all confirmed it Visit veterans photo op votevets If he wants to wear a mask that is up to him. The Government shouldn't be telling us what we can and can't wear.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. Do cats get booped in Britain? It's like getting a 5 year old to eat his greens. I wonder if Melania promised him a Big Mac if he wore it? WHAT DOES HE WANT A FCKIN MEDAL From Michigan 2 months ago..... It’s a hospital About damn time! 22nd of May He knows he fucked up his corona response. The US is bankrupted with the lost of the trade war. He still can't find a buyer for US debt. Hawaii with Pompeo was a threat to China to buy. Chiba snubbed it...
To visit a hospital, which he said he would wear a mask for. Why is this news? 🧐 that this is news, is amazing, he's such a jerk, hopefully he will keep on wearing a mask though. He needs 1 of these 🎱 His polls would drop even further if he didn’t They’re hoax masks. It might shut him up. Shame there isn't d mask for his Twitter account
It was in a hospital. Stop it. He wore a mask in public back in May at the Ford factory. Because he's selfish and only thinks of himself. He's in Florida. Sure as shit he's gunna wear a mask! Then fly home to his family whilst banning EU/UK citizens from seeing theirs STILL! Despite letting in the likes of Russia! LiftTheTravelBan LoveIsNotTourism LoveIsEssential
DefundTheBBC Everyone needs to take the piss out of him right now. There needs to be memes and gifs. Make him feel like he looks stupid. It'll drive him insane! Wow, he looks tough in a mask. and not just any mask.... lol Way to go. Pathetic. He's fallen in my estimation Definitely a better look for him. Going to rub off all that makeup thou
After letting 132,000 die. Don't you dare praise him for this.
