The president has yet to wear a mask publicly, though he did wear one behind the scenes during a tour of a Ford factory in late May.
It’s the personal choice of any individual as to wear a mask or not," press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Monday when asked if Trump would comply with the Jacksonville measure.
Pence was asked at a coronavirus task force briefing on Friday about his message to Americans on masks and did not directly encourage them to wear one, instead saying "the first principle is people ought to listen to their state and local authorities.".
"When the governor and I talked this week, we talked about the importance, in this moment, of calling on people across Texas: Wear a mask," Pence said Sunday.
