Trump Told Tell-All Authors He Refused Masks In Order To Look Strong
Donald Trump admitted to the authors of a new treasonous book that he disregarded his own government's coronavirus guidelines and did not wear a mask to protect against COVID-19 because he feared it would make him look weak.
The former president told Washington Post journalists Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker "how important it is for him to look strong, healthy and impenetrable," Leonnig told MSNBC's Ali Velshi on Tuesday.
Trump caught the coronavirus in October 2020 and was hospitalized for three days with dangerously low oxygen levels.
“I tell you that in our reporting we learned that then Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was advising medical and political advisers: 'No way, he can't wear a mask, he's already looked at it. he can't because his base is basically rebelling, '”said Leonnig.
Leonnig and Rucker's "I Alone Can Fix It": Donald J. Trump's Catastrophic Final Year "was released Tuesday.
