Trump ditches mask during visit to Pennsylvania PPE factory

This Thursday, a notably maskless President Trump visited a Pennsylvania medical equipment distribution center while other officials in his entourage wore the proper face coverings.

“The president toured and made remarks at Owens & Minor Inc. in Allentown to tout his administration’s work in producing and distributing personal protective equipment amid the coronavirus pandemic,” The Hill reports.

“Trump’s decision not to wear a mask was particularly noticeable given he was surrounded by people who wore them,” the report continued. “Photos showed Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar and supply chain leader Rear Adm. John Polowczyk with face coverings. Each employee on the floor to listen to Trump’s remarks wore one as well.”
