Attorney General Warns Trump That By Law He Has To Wear A Mask On Ford Tour

Michigan’s attorney general had some stern words for the president ahead of his planned Ford plant tour.

The Washington Post reports:

“Ahead of President Trump’s planned trip Thursday to a Ford manufacturing plant in Michigan, the state’s attorney general implored him to wear a face mask on his tour, citing a “legal responsibility” — and said he would be asked not to return if he does not do so.

In an open letter addressed to Trump, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) asked the president, who has consistently appeared barefaced in public and at the White House, to adhere to executive orders issued by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) and Ford’s policy mandating masks to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. Trump is scheduled to visit a factory southwest of Detroit that has been repurposed to manufacture ventilators.

‘While my Department will not act to prevent you from touring Ford’s plant, I ask that while you are on tour you respect the great efforts of the men and women at Ford — and across this State — by wearing a facial covering,’ Nessel wrote. ‘It is not just the policy of Ford, by virtue of the Governor’s Executive Orders. It is currently the law of this State.'”
