"Donald Trump and White House officials refused to wear face coverings while touring a Honeywell factory in Phoenix, Arizona, where workers are manufacturing N95 masks, despite warnings posted onsite to do so. Instead, the president wore goggles.
Before leaving the White House on Tuesday morning, he said: "I think it’s a mask facility, right? If it’s a mask facility, I will. Yeah. I don’t know if it’s a mask facility. … We’re going to see Honeywell. They have done an incredible job on many fronts. And so I’m going to pay my respects to a great company and a great state: the state of Arizona."
He added: "They make N95. And they do — and they make them good. They don’t make the ones that don’t work, like we got sent from certain other countries. No, no — like other people got sent from other countries.""
