WH Adviser Dodges On Trump Mask Refusal: ‘Nothing More To Squeeze From That Orange’

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Tuesday morning found himself in a fiery exchange on CNN as he repeatedly dodged questions regarding President Trump’s refusal to wear a mask in public.

McConnell Reiterates Call To Wear Masks: ‘Single Most Important Thing’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Monday urged the public once again to wear masks to slow the spread of COVID-19, as the country’s seven-day average for daily new cases hit a record high for the 27th straight day the day before.
