Michigan attorney general: Trump, if you don't wear a mask you'll be 'asked not to return' (VIDEO)
President Trump is visiting Ford Motor Company's auto plant in Ypsilanti, MI on Thursday and has been notified by the company that he should wear a mask.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is taking things a step further. On CNN's "New Day" she claimed that Trump will be told to not ever come back if he doesn't.
“We are just asking that President Trump comply with the law in our state, just as we would make the same request of anyone else in those plants,” she said.
“If we’ve learned nothing over the last several years of President Trump in the White House, it’s that he doesn’t have the same level of legal accountability as everybody else."
However, she said: “if he fails to wear a mask, he’s going to be asked not to return to any enclosed facility inside our state. I know that Ford has asked him to do the same thing, but if we know that he’s coming to our state, and we know he’s not going to follow the law, I think we’re going to have to take action against any company or any facility that allows him inside those facilities and puts our workers at risk.”
Nessel also took the liberty of not just speaking out on TV - she also sent an open letter to the president stating the policy of wearing a mask.
“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,” she 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.”
Trump for his part has only said that he might do it. To date, Trump has never been seen wearing a mask and if he does it will be the first time.
