Washington (CNN) Dr. Anthony Fauci implored Americans on Wednesday to wear a mask while out in public, a comment at odds with President Donald Trump’s repeated downplaying of the necessity of wearing one.
“I want to protect myself and protect others and also because I want to make it be a symbol for people to see that’s the kind of thing you should be doing,” Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert and a member of the White House’s coronavirus task force, told CNN’s Jim Sciutto.
Trump has sought to politicize the wearing of masks during the coronavirus crisis. Trump himself has not worn a mask in public during factory tours in recent weeks, even as public health experts have recommended wearing them. This week, Trump shared a tweet that mocked former Vice President Joe Biden for wearing a mask Monday at a Memorial Day ceremony, prompting the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee to call Trump “an absolute fool.”
