Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “‘Americans must have their freedoms’: Trump rejects Biden’s call for MASK MANDATE, says states should decide”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Biden's approach is "regressive, anti-scientific and very defeatist," Trump said on Thursday during a White House press briefing, accusing the Democrat presidential candidate of hiding in his Delaware basement and wanting the same fate inflicted on all Americans.

Biden called for all governors to mandate the wearing of masks and for “every single American” to wear a mask “for the next three months at a minimum,” during his own press event on Thursday.
