Trump Seen At Event Without Mask Hours After Saying It’s ‘Patriotic’ To Wear One

The president was seen without a face covering at a fundraiser at his Washington hotel.

President Donald Trump on Monday called face masks “patriotic” and said on Twitter “there is nobody more Patriotic than me.”

Hours later, he was seen without his patriotism.

Footage from a fundraiser at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, above, shows multiple people, including the president, mingling without a mask.

Health experts have been calling on people to wear face coverings when in public to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. Trump has only rarely been seen in one, and has resisted calls for a national mandate.

Trump raised $5 million at the event, according to CBS.
