Trump can't 'run around to every local community' to enforce wearing masks

Trump can't 'run around to every local community' to enforce wearing masks

As his disapproval numbers rise amid the coronavirus crisis, and as almost two-thirds of Americans believe the pandemic will get worse, President Donald Trump appears to be shifting his position when it comes to wearing masks.

U.S. President Donald Trump's White House on Thursday rallied around the message that all was well both in the battle against coronavirus and in efforts to get the U.S. economy moving again despite several days of record spikes in new cases. He predicted a resurgence just before the November election.

In Wednesday's interview, Mr Trump suggested a federal mandate was unnecessary and continued to frame mask wearing as a matter of choice. And on who can handle the crisis better - Trump or his Democratic Party challenger, Joe Biden - Americans favor Biden by a margin of 14 percent.

And he noted that the labour market "is still bleeding jobs". Payrolls rose by 4.8 million last month and the unemployment rate fell to 11.1 per cent from 13.3 per cent in May.

The monthly employment report focuses on the week containing the 12th of the month, which was before the recent spike in cases.

Mnuchin was asked whether the administration regretted allowing states so open up so quickly and said that although the case numbers are up, he believes the government has found "the right balance".

Trump praised his administration's handling of the virus and predicted a "fantastic" third quarter that would help him before voters go to the polls. "I think that, at some point, that's going to sort of just disappear, I hope". In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Trump also said a big issue he has with masks is that people fidget with them. "I have. People have seen me wearing one, if I'm in a group of people where we're not 10 feet away", the president said.

The president, during his earlier comments to reporters, expressed confidence that the surge in virus cases would not slow the recovery.

Texas again topped its previous record on Wednesday with 8,076 new cases, while SC reported 24 more deaths, a single-day high for the state.

"We can get people back to work safely", he said.

But a separate Labor Department report showed job losses continued, as 1.43 million people filed initial claims for unemployment benefits last week, only slightly less than the prior week.

President Donald Trump delivered remarks July 2 at the "Spirit of America" business showcase, held at the White House.

The legislation could include redirecting roughly US$130 billion in unused funds left in the Paycheck Protection Program for small businesses, Mnuchin said.

'Somehow we want the president of the United States to run around to every local community, ' she said. The president has dismissed the reports as a "hoax", even though his own senior officials weighed possible reprisals.

Trump also encouraged others to wear masks or facial coverings, a stark departure from previous marks.

"I just don't want to be doing - I don't know, somehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that lovely Resolute Desk, the great Resolute Desk, I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens".
