US President Donald Trump appears to have shifted his stance on wearing a face covering in public, saying in an interview that he is “all for masks”.The American leader even told Fox Business he thinks wearing a mask makes him look like the fictional Lone Ranger.
As the US becomes more and more wracked with novel coronavirus COVID-19 cases, governors have begun to push for a federal mandate on wearing masks. White House officials are discussing actively encouraging masks as they shift to a strategy of preparing Americans to live long-term with the virus. But according to CNN, President Donald Trump has so far resisted the call, and still refuses to wear one himself.
President Donald Trump has defended his claim that children are 'virtuallyimmune' to coronavirus. Facebook has deleted a post by US President DonaldTrump for the first time, saying it violated its policy against spreadingmisinformation about the coronavirus. The post in question featured a link toa Fox News video in which Mr Trump says children are "virtually immune" to thevirus. Facebook said the "video includes false claims that a group of peopleis immune from Covid-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmfulCovid misinformation".
