Trump announces new CDC guidelines to wear cloth masks


President Trump announced new guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the public to wear nonmedical masks to help curb the spread of the coronavirus. "The transmission from individuals without symptoms is playing a more significant role in the spread of the virus than previously understood," Trump said.

BREAKING: Pres. Trump: "The CDC is advising the use of non-medical cloth face covering as an additional, voluntary public health measure."

"It's voluntary. You don't have to do it...I don't think I'm going to be doing it."

Pressed further, Trump says, "Somehow sitting in the Oval Office, behind that beautiful Resolute Desk...I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens...I don't see it for myself." abcn.ws/34d356v #donaldtrump #CDC #masks #coronavirus #covid19
