President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would have no problem wearing a mask in public, despite avoiding being pictured with a face covering amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I’m all for masks. I think masks are good,” Trump said in an interview with Fox Business on Wednesday afternoon.
The president’s comments represent a significant departure from his earlier sentiments on masks. At a news conference in late May, Trump blasted a Reuters journalist, Jeff Mason, for wearing a facial covering and accused the reporter of wanting to be “politically correct.”
