Melania Trump models face covering in new public announcement
Melania Trump wore a face mask in a new photo tweeted from the first lady’s account Thursday as part of a message urging fellow Americans to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended coronavirus guidelines.
Trump“I just don’t want to wear one myself, it’s a recommendation,” he told reporters last Friday. “Somehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful Resolute Desk, the great Resolute Desk, I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, dictators, kings, queens, I don’t know, I don’t see it for myself.”
The president has mostly stayed in the White House since the coronavirus crisis worsened, and the Secret Service has been screening people who will be in proximity with him to make sure they’re not ill. The White House announced earlier this month that “anyone who is expected to be in close proximity” to Trump or Vice President Mike Pence would receive a test for COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.
