The White House mocks the idea of ​​sending free N95 masks to everyone

An anonymous senior White House official has ridiculed the idea of ​​sending free N95 masks to Americans because some will not wear them, according to a new Politico report. The incident reminds us when White House Spokeswoman Jen Psaki scoffed at the idea of ​​sending free Covid-19 tests home before retiring just two weeks later.

And yet Politico reports that The Biden government is still trying to decide if providing free high-quality masks would be a good idea, as "half the country will not wear them", according to a senior official.

Ο White House had previously ridiculed a proposal that said Americans should be able to take a free test for Covid-19 at home, but after receiving strong criticism he changed his mind.
