First Lady of the United States Melania Trump used her official Twitter handle to promote the recommendations of health officials of wearing face masks when stepping out of the house. On Thursday, Melania posted a picture of herself with a face mask on her Twitter handle. Her post highlights the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) recommendations that all Americans should opt for face maks when in public to slow down the spread of the coronavirus outbreak in the US. However, President Trump contradicts with his wife; he said he wouldn't wear one.
Melania posted - "As the CDC studies the spread of #COVID-19, they recommend people wear cloth face coverings in public settings when social distancing can be hard to do." She further added the importance of social distancing - "Remember, this does NOT replace the importance of social distancing. It is recommended to keep us safe." In her post, Melania sported a paper surgical mask, which is generally for health care workers. Surgeon General Jerome Adams, the top doctor of the US, suggested using a homemade cloth to make masks on their own and preserve the high-end masks for the front end workers of the health care system. President Donald Trump also emphasized the importance of CDC guidance and encouraged Americans to use cloth face maks when outside of the home.
However, Trump clarified that he wouldn't be wearing one. "I just don't want to wear a mask myself. It's a recommendation from my end. I am feeling good presently. Sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful Resolute Desk; I don't think wearing a mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens is a great idea. I don't know, somehow, I don't want to see myself with a mask," said Trump on Friday during his coronavirus briefing.
