Trump dismisses notion of issuing nationwide mask mandate

Calls are intensifying for a national mask mandate as the US grapples with rising COVID-19 cases, but Donald Trump just ended any speculation that he’s willing to give such an order. 

In an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace set to be aired in full on Sunday, President Trump responded to rumors about enacting an order for all Americans to wear face coverings in public.

After California Governor Gavin Newsom issued a blanket mask-wearing order in mid-June, other state governors are beginning to follow suit.

Some Democrat politicians such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have been agitating for a national order, but Trump has stood firmly against attempting a nationwide mandate thus far.

Trump told Wallace he will not issue such an order because he wants to preserve a “certain freedom” and explained that the inconsistent message about masks from the onset of the pandemic until now indicates that a national mandate is not warranted.

“Hey, Dr. Fauci said, don’t wear a mask,” Trump explained. “Our Surgeon General – terrific guy – said, don’t wear a mask. Everybody who is saying don’t wear a mask – all of sudden everybody’s got to wear a mask, and as you know, masks cause problems, too. With that being said, I’m a believer in masks. I think masks are good.”

“I want people to have a certain freedom, and I don’t believe in that,” Trump told Wallace. “No, and I don’t agree with the statement that if everybody wears a mask, everything disappears.” Some public health officials have said that if everyone in the US would wear a mask, COVID-19 would be eradicated, though CDC face-covering guidelines do not indicate that there is a scientific basis for this assertion.

As with much of the COVID-19 response, Trump has left decisions about masks up to state governors and local policymakers.

  1. This is the first time in modern history the public has been told to wear mask ,perhaps if Dems didn’t egg people on to protest and even join them and once they turned to riots they still egg them on ,and BLM and the fools running with them don’t even realize they invited them into Covid filled streets knowing some will die for their own greedy agenda to fall the economy,now everyone else should pay for this ,I don’t think so.

  2. I 100% believe that this virus with the help of certain billionaires already screwing around with this virus and China Communist let this out intentionally the people responsible have tons of $tied up in American business in China And Trump was ruining their profits by making it better here in USA , They failed to get Trump out with fake impeachments ,and this was a last resort .These people don’t care about lives lost as much as they care for money and power.

  3. I have allergies & I am afraid of small closed in places with lots of people, I get tunnel vision ,lite headed & start sweating like some one who works hard in the sun person when I have a mask on. Guess they are going to find me passed out or dead in one of those store one of these days.

  4. Face masks does far more harm to the one who uses them. Traps moisture and Bacteria that in turn causes lung problems. The wearer stores up more Co2 than the body can handle…..that is why I will not wear the mask, even under a Government mandate!


  6. No mask mandate is needed. The Democrats are trying make it so they have total control of everyone and everything. Next will be curfews and looking at your medical records.

  7. Isn’t it sort of dumb to keep voting for the same people and expect something different. That’ts the definition of “STUPID”. I wish more people would open their eyes and realize it. As for Mask wearing, common courtesy is all it should take. Unfortunately their is a lack of that these days. DRAIN THE SWAMP!!!!

  8. Thank you, President Trump. From day one I have viewed the mask thing a means of the leftoids getting what they want…….total America idiocy that they can maintain for months if not years. So far I have never worn a mask except in the operating room and while caring for a serious disease patient….and even then I had no fear about catching a disease. I remember quite well the POLIO decade and the coronovirus is a NOTHING THING compared to the POLIO thing that closed down very little if nothing. It is like no American has ever heard of a VIRUS.

  9. Wearing a mask is not the answer. This is a herd virus like in cattle or sheep and to get immunities or antibodies, you need to be out there and it will pass like the flu. All those being tested have been out there, exposed to it, but have no systems, and if they do, they are mild symptoms. Wear a mask is dangerous. Example: you wear a mask, your breathing hot air in it, it gets wet, you take it off in the car. You leave it in your hot car which becomes a petri dish. Now mold and mildew plus other bugs start growing. You wear that same mask, now you are breathing mold and mildew into your lungs. You just opened up a whole new can of worms. You have infected your lungs with mold and mildew, plus whatever other bugs are growing. Now you really have a problem.

  10. Wearing masks will not keep people for catching the virus in my humble opinion. I wear one when grocery shopping so I can enter the store.

  11. Absolutely NOt healthy. More deadly! Scientifically, the efficacy of masks is a fraud! It is only a tool in the NWO program of control and depopulate.
