Trump Says US Won't Close If Hit By Coronavirus Second Wave

Trump skips mask at Michigan plant despite warnings from Ford, state attorney general | McClatchy Washington Bureau

Till the time of publishing this article, none of the members of G7 had committed to the in-person meeting hosted by the U.S. Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he'll look into the proposal "to see what kind of measures will be in place to keep people safe".

Nessel had asked Trump to don a mask during his tour of Ford Motor Company's Rawsonville plant in Ypsilanti Township to comply with state orders and Ford company policy.

The first photo of President Donald Trump wearing a face mask was aired by MSNBC Thursday night.

Pandemic politics shadowed the trip to MI as he highlighted lifesaving medical devices, with the president and officials from the electoral battleground state clashing over federal aid, mail-in ballots and face masks. "I didn't want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it".

"I was given a choice when I had one on in an area where they preferred it so I put it on and it was very nice, it looked very nice". "I had one on before".

"Do nothing A.G. of the Great State of Michigan, Dana Nessel, should not be taking her anger and stupidity out on Ford Motor-they might get upset with you and leave the state, like so many other companies have-until I came along and brought business back to Michigan", Trump tweeted. "That's exactly right. I mean, today's events were extremely disappointing and yet, totally predictable". The Attorney General also said that under Governor Gretchen Whitmer's Executive Order No.2020-91, the wearing of face masks are mandatory in enclosed spaces, not to mention the suspension of all tours in manufacturing facilities. He added that he had also worn goggles. "I think it sets an example both ways".

Another 2.4M Workers File First-Time Jobless Claims
Briem predicted the jobless rate will be around 16%, depending on how numerous unemployed workers are captured in the data. On an non-seasonally adjusted basis, initial claims were 2.17 million last week, following 2.36 million the prior week.

NPR reported that Ford had issued a statement from its Chairman - Bill Ford - in which it was clarified that Trump had been encouraged to wear a face mask when he arrives at the plant and while he did have one on for some time before proceeding to remove it.

"There's such a strong culture of individualism that, even if it's going to help protect them, people don't want the government telling them what to do", Linsey Marr, an engineering professor at Virginia Tech with experience in airborne transmission of viruses, said recently.

When asked if it was true that it wasn't required that the president wear a mask, Ford's CEO, Jim Hackett, told reporters, "It's up to him". The company had indicated prior to the visit that the president should wear a mask at the factory.

Even if a second wave of coronavirus infections hits the USA, the country will not shut down, President Donald Trump said Thursday.

Nessel later responded to Trump on Twitter, defending the state's auto industry.

"Hi! After struggling with our Gov & SOS, impressed you know my name", she wrote.
