President Donald Trump has said that those who wear face masks are infected with the Coronavirus “all the time”. However, there is no evidence behind his claim. Trump claimed this during the NBC News town hall program in Miami on Thursday.
President Trump himself and his wife Melania were tested positive for Coronavirus
The president was asked questions about a large-scale event at the White House on September 26 that is believed to have been the source of infection and that many of the guests attending had suffered from Covid-19. Most of the people attending the program did not wear masks. Those being infected include President Trump himself and his wife Melania.
The President himself seldom wears masks. Trump said he had no problem with the mask, however, and later claimed that “people wearing masks suffer from it (infection) all the time.”
