Joe Biden’s 180 Turn on Masks: ‘I Wouldn’t Issue a National Mandate’

In an interview with AZFamily’s “Politics Unplugged”, Joe Biden walked back his own call for a national mask mandate.

When asked if he would give authority to the states, Biden said: “Well, I hope you could trust the governors.”

“But here’s the deal, the federal government — there’s a constitutional issue whether the federal government could issue such a mandate. I don’t think constitutionally they could, so I wouldn’t issue a mandate.”

This is quite a departure from what Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris told reporters on August 24th during a briefing by public health experts in Wilmington.

“Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months, at a minimum. Every governor should mandate mandatory mask-wearing,” Biden said, suggesting that widespread mask use could save 40,000 lives over the next three months. “Let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide starting immediately, and we will save lives.”
