The U.S. leader did not appear in public wearing a mask and shared playful banter with plant employees, both during the tour and on stage.

The president has not been wearing a mask in public despite health advice from his administration encouraging people to do so to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Earlier on Friday, the World Health Organization (WHO) said countries have seen upticks in COVID-19 cases as lockdowns ease, and populations must protect themselves from the coronavirus while authorities continue testing.
