US President Donald Trump visited the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center today (Saturday) and was seen wearing a mask. This is the first time the president was seen wearing a mask and untill now he refused to be seen doing so in public.

"I'll probably have a mask if you must know", Trump told reporters before the visit, "I'll probably have a mask. I think when you're in a hospital especially in that particular setting, where you are talking to a lot of soldiers, people that in some cases just got off the operating table. I think it's a great thing to wear a mask. I've never been against masks but I do believe they have a time and a place"

According to CNN, Trump's agreement to don a mask in public was the result of heavy "pleading" by aides, who urged the President to set an example for his supporters by wearing a mask on the visit.
