Trump Press Conference
Trump To Recommend Wearing Masks In Public?

The press conference is scheduled for 5pm but it's usually 15 or 20 minutes late to start.

As you may have heard, Trump is considering reversing the stupid prior CDC advice and recommending that people wear masks in public.

CNN claims that Trump advised people not to wear masks. Another CNN lie. Trump didn't advise people against it -- the CDC did.

It's just a naked propaganda outlet.

As for questions about how one can even get a maks:

Trump has invoked the Defense Production Act to tell 3M to stop shipping masks to Latin America and Canada and prioritize production for the US.

The Trump administration on Thursday invoked the Defense Production Act, compelling 3M to prioritize orders for desperately needed N95 respiratory masks for the US government’s national stockpile.

...

But 3M criticized a previously unreported request from the White House that it also stop sending any N95 masks to Latin America and Canada, citing “significant humanitarian implications” given the great need for them in the US and complaints from governors around the country, including New York’s Andrew Cuomo, that they wind up in bidding wars for supplies against each other and other countries.

“The Administration also requested that 3M cease exporting respirators that we currently manufacture in the United States to the Canadian and Latin American markets,” the Friday morning statement read.

“There are, however, significant humanitarian implications of ceasing respirator supplies to healthcare workers in Canada and Latin America, where we are a critical supplier of respirators,” it continued.

Apparently the humanitarian needs of their overseas clients exceed the humanitarian concerns of the United States.

Gee, I'd sure like to do more favors for multinational corporations who spit at the notion of loyalty to America. Do you think if we beg real hard, the Republican Donor Class and Coservative, Inc. would let us do more favors for transnational corporations?

But anyway, yes, it seems likely that Trump will recommend the wearing of masks in public.

In some jurisdictions, they're already making it mandatory.
