Trump holds a protective face mask with a presidential seal on it that he said he had been wearing earlier in his tour at the Ford Rawsonville Components Plant.

Ranney put it in blunt terms: "I do not think that we are now prepared for a second wave", she said. "And so I hope that we'll have a new president soon enough who does respect people more than this president does". Trump told reporters that he wore a mask in the "back area", but that he removed his mask because he "didn't want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it".

Till the time of publishing this article, none of the members of G7 had committed to the in-person meeting hosted by the U.S. Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he'll look into the proposal "to see what kind of measures will be in place to keep people safe". When asked by the local media, he said, "I had one on before".

The reason he gave for removing his mask was that he "didn't want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it", which is such a freaky mentality, to have turned masks into a completely one-sided war of egos. In the back area I did have a mask on. "That's exactly right. I mean, today's events were extremely disappointing and yet, totally predictable". The Federalist's David Marcus even went as far to say Trump wearing a mask would be a "searing image of weakness".

"They knew exactly what the order was and if they permitted anyone, even the president of the United States, to defy that order, I think it has serious health consequences potentially to their workers", Nessel told CNN.

During the roundtable discussion, Trump said he expected the CDC to put out guidance on reopening places of worship as soon as Thursday.

Ford said that over the last five days coronavirus cases have been increasing and testing numbers "haven't been there". This is an increase from the 7,382 done on Wednesday and the 5,813 done on Tuesday.

The argument and the logic behind it, however, has not cut ice with those slamming the United States president for setting a wrong example.

When asked if it was true that it wasn't required that the president wear a mask, Ford's CEO, Jim Hackett, told reporters, "It's up to him".

The company said after the president's visit was announced that it had shared details of its safety policies with the White House.

Executive Chairman Bill Ford confirmed that Trump "wore a mask during a private viewing of three Ford GTs from over the years". An open letter from Michigan's attorney general warned that it was "the law of this state" to wear a mask.

At the Ford plant, the president praised the company for its hard work, patriotism, and talent in manufacturing ventilators and PPE for medical personnel and first responders.

Nessel later responded to Trump on Twitter, defending the state's auto industry.
