President Trump said he would make a decision over the next day on whether to mandate masks on federal property.
"We’re going to make a decision over the next 24 hours," Trump said when asked whether he would follow the local government in Washington, DC, on mandating masks.
While DC Mayor Muriel Bowser issued a mandate on masks on Wednesday, it won't extend to federal buildings.
Trump repeated his support of mask wearing, and again pulled out his mask to demonstrate his willingness to wear it (though didn't actually put it on).
While Trump once mandated masks be worn by staff on the White House complex, the order expired and they are no longer mandatory for aides.
