BREAKING: President Trump Urges Americans to Wear a Mask

Speaking from the Brady Briefing Room at the White House Tuesday evening, President Trump gave an update on his administration's work against Wuhan coronavirus and called on Americans to wear masks when they can't social distance. 

"Anything that potentially can help is a good thing," Trump said. "It helps."

"Now, we have had experts who have said in the recent past that masks aren't necessarily good to wear...now they've changed their mind and if they've changed their mind that's good enough for me," he added.  

Yesterday President Trump tweeted that wearing a mask is patriotic. 

President Trump has stopped short of issuing a national mask mandate, which he told Fox News' Chris Wallace   cuts against American freedom and doesn't fully solve the problem. 

"I want people to have a certain freedom and I don’t believe in that," he said. "I don't agree with the statement that if everyone wears a mask everything disappears."
