Trump fails to wear mask at Michigan Ford plant visit despite company request – video
Donald Trump appeared without a protective mask on a visit to the carmaker Ford’s Michigan plan despite the company requiring visitors to wear them. ‘I had one on before. I wore one in the back area. I didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it,’ he said.
Trump toured the Ford plant in Ypsilanti, which has been producing ventilators and personal protective equipment during the coronavirus outbreak. The president’s decision to not wear a mask drew the ire of Michigan’s state attorney general, Dana Nessel, after she had written to the White House saying it was the law in Michigan that everyone should wear a mask.
‘The president is like a petulant child who refuses to follow the rules. This is not a joke,’ she told CNN
