The Trumps are now being spotted in mask due to the advice from their political aides, experts believe. The sight of so many maskless people during the election campaigns and rallies of Trump and the heavy criticism faced by Trump over roaming mask-less in the country amid a surge of coronavirus cases, forced the Trump family to finally don face masks in order to avoid taking a hit because of this reason in the upcoming elections.

The US is one of the worst affected countries worldwide by coronavirus. On Sunday, the country reported over 61,000 cases, a third straight daily rise. As of Sunday, over 3.2 million infections were recorded with more than 134,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
