Trump Blasts Biden Administration For Return To Mask Mandates

Why do Democrats distrust the science? Don’t let this happen to our children or our Country.”

Former President Donald Trump attacked President Joe Biden for the CDC’s decision to require vaccinated people to wear masks in certain situations Tuesday.

The CDC updated its guidance Tuesday, reversing a decision earlier this summer that allowed vaccinated Americans to forgo masks both indoors and outdoors. The CDC credits the change to the ongoing spread of the Delta COVID variant despite vaccines still working against the strain. 

“We won’t go back. We won’t mask our children,” Trump said in a statement. “Joe Biden and his Administration learned nothing from the last year. Brave Americans learned how to safely and responsibly live and fight back. Don’t surrender to COVID. Don’t go back! Why do Democrats distrust the science? Don’t let this happen to our children or our Country.”

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky specifically stated that the new guidance includes schools, arguing that students and teachers in K-12 schools should wear masks.

“This includes schools,” the CDC director said Tuesday. “CDC recommends that everyone in K-12 schools wear a mask indoors, including teachers, staff, students and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. Children should return to full-time, in-person learning in the fall with proper prevention strategies in place.”

President Biden had teased the CDC reverting its policy during a CNN town hall last week, saying it would likely be requiring masks for children “soon.”

“The CDC is going to say that what you should do is everyone under the age of 12 should probably be wearing masks in school. That’s probably what’s going to happen,” Biden said in response to an audience question. “Secondly, those over the age of 12 who are able to get vaccinated, if you’re vaccinated you shouldn’t wear a mask. If you aren’t vaccinated, you should be wearing a mask.”

House of Reps enforces mask mandate after upsurge of COVID-19 cases

“To be clear, for meetings in an enclosed US House of Representatives controlled space, masks are REQUIRED”

Masks will once again be universally required on the House side of the Capitol amid the spread of the highly contagious delta variant, the Capitol physician announced late Tuesday night.

The resumption of the House mask mandate — just over a month after it was lifted — comes after new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) earlier Tuesday recommending that vaccinated people should wear masks in high-risk areas.

“To be clear, for meetings in an enclosed US House of Representatives controlled space, masks are REQUIRED,” a memo from the Capitol physician, Brian Monahan, states.

Monahan said that masks are justified given that members of Congress hail from all over the country, where some areas — primarily conservative-leaning — are seeing a surge in COVID-19 amid low vaccination rates.

“For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan wrote.

Most people in the Capitol were largely forgoing masks in recent weeks after the Capitol physician announced last month that they were no longer required for people vaccinated against COVID-19.

But many lawmakers and staffers began wearing masks voluntarily again last week following news that Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.), a staffer for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and a White House official all tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated.

The return of the House mask mandate drew swift outcry from Republicans, many of whom have resisted wearing facial coverings from the start of the pandemic.

“Make no mistake — The threat of bringing masks back is not a decision based on science, but a decision conjured up by liberal government officials who want to continue to live in a perpetual pandemic state,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) tweeted Tuesday night.

Lawmakers face hefty fines if they don’t comply with the House floor mask mandate. Six Republicans were issued $500 fines in May for refusing to wear masks before the Capitol physician ultimately lifted the requirement.

The mask requirement will not apply to the Senate. But it’s a different COVID-19 risk environment in the Senate, where all but four senators have confirmed publicly that they are vaccinated in a recent CNN survey. All but a handful of senators also complied with mask recommendations throughout the pandemic, compared to numerous House Republicans who refused to voluntarily wear masks before the mandate went into effect a year ago.

All Democrats in the House and Senate have confirmed they are vaccinated. But nearly half of House Republicans still won’t reveal their vaccination status.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) revealed last week that he only just received his first vaccine shot, in contrast to McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) getting their vaccines as soon as members of Congress were eligible in December and publicly urging others to do the same.
