Trump, who spent Memorial Day without a face mask, shares tweet criticizing Biden for wearing one
Trump, however, appeared unbothered by the outcry and shared the tweet to his 80.2 million followers Monday night.
Trump’s retweet came at the end of a holiday weekend defined by dueling optics. As officials urged social distancing and the number of reported covid-19 deaths in the U.S. crept closer to 100,000, viral photos and videos emerged showing beaches, pool parties and raceways packed with crowds raucously celebrating the long weekend.
But the contrasting approaches to Memorial Day appeared most obvious in the actions of the nation’s leaders — the president and his presumptive Democratic opponent — as they paid public tributes on Monday to lives lost in past wars.
