The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday that masks are the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 — even more effective than a vaccine.
Director Robert Redfield, testifying before a Senate committee, urged everyone in America to wear masks in public, saying the pandemic could be controlled in six to 12 weeks if everyone complied.
This face mask will," Redfield continued.
"A lot of people don't want to wear masks," Trump said.
Immediately before he said that, the president criticized Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who has no governmental role or authority, for not instituting a national mask mandate.
