POLL: Are you against a national mask mandate?
President Trump recalled that he did not want to issue a mask mandate during the coronavirus pandemic, according to Breitbart News.
“There is, by the way, a lot of people who don’t want to wear masks,” Trump said.
“There are a lot of people that think the masks are not good.”
“The concept of a mask is good, but … you are constantly touching it, touching your face, touching plates,” he said. “There are people that don’t think masks are good.”
“They checked out and they didn’t do it,” he said.
“I didn’t downplay it,” Trump said. “I actually, in many ways, I up-played it in terms of action.”
“It’s going to be herd development, and that’s going to happen. That will all happen,” he said. “But with a vaccine, I think it will go away very quickly.”

Trump also defended his initial response to the virus, despite complaints that he downplayed its deadly nature at the beginning of the crisis.
He argued that his decision to ban travel from China saved millions of lives, at a time when Democrats criticized the idea.
