Announcing the new recommendation last week, the US president said, "I just don't want to wear one myself, it's a recommendation. Somehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful Resolute Desk, the great Resolute Desk, I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, dictators, kings, queens, I don't know, I don't see it for myself."
On Sunday, Melania tweeted opposite of her husband, writing "I ask that everyone take social distancing & wearing a mask/face covering seriously. #COVID19 is a virus that can spread to anyone."
When asked about her tweet at a press briefing on Sunday, Trump said, "It's good, no, she feels that way. She likes the idea of wearing it, yeah she does. A lot of people do. Again, it's a recommendation, and I understand that recommendation, and I'm ok with it."
Despite the mixed messaging coming from the Trump family, the CDC has been clear about the recommendation regarding masks and face coverings.
