Should we be wearing mask out? We heard lot of different recommendations?” And President Trump replied that he does not see any issue for the public to wear face mask but he preferred wearing scarf because it is better.
“I don’t believe it will be a big thing. A lot of People don’t like it. Some people don’t like it because you take them away from the medical professional. Some people don’t like it for other reasons. I don’t see where it hurts and it does not have to be a mask, it can be a scarf. Scarf is highly recommended by the professionals. I don’t see where it hurts. Frankly, I think if people wanted to do… we don’t want to do anything is going to take tremendous masks away from our medical professionals but I don’t see it is hurting but what I see what people is doing now is using scarf and I think in a certain way depend on the fabric. I think certain way scarf is better. It is actually better.” Said president Trump.
