Visiting the wounded military, Trump put on a medical mask for the first time

The President also met with health workers who are restraining the spread of the coronavirus.

President Donald Trump, on Saturday, visited American military personnel hospitalized at a military medical center in the suburbs of Washington, the White House said.

In an interview with Fox News, Trump promised to wear a mask during his visit to the Walter reed national military medical center in Bethesda, Maryland. He added that it would be “very appropriate.”
The President fulfilled his promise.

In addition to meeting with soldiers who were injured, Trump met with medical workers restraining the spread of the coronavirus.

Trump was always criticized for the fact that he is not wearing a mask, and does not advocate their use. Until recently, it was not known whether Trump would be photographed in a mask since such visits are often conducted without media accompaniment to protect the privacy of wounded soldiers.
