Trump tours Ford plant without a mask, defying company policy



Till the time of publishing this article, none of the members of G7 had committed to the in-person meeting hosted by the U.S. Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he'll look into the proposal "to see what kind of measures will be in place to keep people safe".

President Donald Trump says he wore mask and goggles out of view of reporters while he was touring a Ford plant in MI.

When asked what example it would send to other Americans, Trump simply stated that it will set an example both ways since he did wear a face mask, albeit inconsistently.

Answering press questions during a tour of the Ford factory in Michigan, Trump said "we are not closing our country" when asked whether another peak of the virus at the end of the year could force the United States in to a second lockdown. "I didn't want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it", Trump said.

"Not their fault, & I did put on a mask", he wrote. "And I hope that the voters of MI will remember this when November comes, that he didn't care enough about their safety, he didn't care about their welfare, he didn't respect them enough just to engage in the very simple task, the painless task, the easy task of wearing a mask when he was provided one", she vented.

Some current CDC officials claimed that they have been "muzzled" by the Trump administration as it pushes to reopen. "I had goggles and a mask right back there". He said he also wore googles. "Look, very nice. But they said they're not necessary". "And I think it's going to end badly".

Canadians encouraged to wear non-medical face masks in public
Tam said accessibility is one of the considerations regarding mandatory mask use, because not everyone can wear a mask. He was first seen wearing a mask in public during a May 6 Canadian Armed Forces repatriation ceremony.

A spokesperson from the United Kingdom said they are in contact with the US about the G7 Summit while representatives from Italy and Japan said they have only seen Trump's tweet and are awaiting details.

Beyond the astonishingly terrible optics of a president of the United States wearing a medical mask there is a practical reason for the commander in chief to forego them at public events.

The company said after the president's visit was announced that it had shared details of its safety policies with the White House. Bill Ford, the great-grandson of Henry Ford, has been the company's executive chairman.

Nessel later responded to Trump on Twitter, defending the state's auto industry.

"Hi! After struggling with our Gov & SOS, impressed you know my name". "Seems like you have a problem with all 3 women who run MI-as well as your ability to tell the truth".

While Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has strongly advised everyone in the U.S. to make use of face masks to prevent falling victim to Covid-19, Trump and his supporters have claimed that since the U.S. president and his close circle of high-ranking officials are routinely tested, wearing a mask at all times is not necessary.
