Trump: 'Wear a mask ... they have an impact'
In his first White House coronavirus press briefing since April, Trump reversed course from his previous position on face masks and urged Americans to wear them.
“We’re asking everybody that, when you are not able to socially distance, wear a mask," Trump said. "Get a mask. Whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact. They’ll have an effect."
Trump had previously been reluctant to be seen in public wearing a mask and often questioned their impact in slowing down transmission.
