Joe Biden Wears Mask To Veterans Memorial On Memorial Day 2020

Joe Biden wore a mask while paying tribute to fallen veterans on Memorial Day 2020. Jill Biden, his wife, also wore a protective mask, as did the Secret Service detail protecting the Bidens. The event was the first that Biden has attended outside of his home in weeks since the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic hit.

Donald Trump has refused to wear a mask in public. Trump reportedly believes wearing a mask will make him look weak. Health experts, including the CDC, have recommended masks. Masks protect against the spread of COVID-19, which has killed 100,000 Americans.
