United States President Donald Trump on Saturday appeared in public wearing a face mask for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, bringing much anticipation at a time when the country has been debating whether the use of face cover should be made mandatory in public places.

Trump wore a dark blue mask with a golden seal of the presidency at one end during a visit to the Walter Reed military hospital, on the outskirts of Washington to meet with health workers and troops admitted there. EFE-EPA
