Donald Trump has said numerous times that masks just aren’t for him. So now there is plenty of speculation over what’s behind his post today declaring, “many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face mask when you can’t socially distance. There is nobody more Patriotic than me, your favorite President!”
Was the president urged to do this? Did he suddenly realize he was losing his war against masks? Were recent poll numbers a wake-up call?
We may not know what caused this sudden turnaround, but we can say that not many people are buying it.
Someone forced President Trump to do the socially responsible thing for once and he insists on being: super racist, self-absorbed, and hyper-partisan.— David Rothschild (@DavMicRot) July 20, 2020
Indeed, today even some Trump supporters are scratching their heads. But we’ve noticed the majority of his #MAGA followers are silent.
Mr. President, I have supported you for a long time and continue to do so. Do you truly understand that masks don’t work? This to me goes right into the hands of the Deep State plan.— CJTRUTH⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@cjtruth) July 20, 2020

I absolutely despise this photo of you in a mask. We know we’re living a horror show and this doesn’t help us get out of it. Masks don’t work and they are a sign of enslavement to [them].— RunningTheRace ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@2runtherace) July 20, 2020
