Dr. Deborah Birx, President Trump’s coronavirus adviser, is now telling all Americans to accept the “new normal” of wearing a face mask after she pressured Tennessee officials to require mandatory mask wearing in public.
Dr. Birx, who stepped into the spotlight as the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator after the department of Dr. Anthony Fauci, says that wearing a face mask is the “next phase” of the coronavirus recovery and even tactically agreed to a federal face mask mandate.
“We have this new normal, and guess what we’re saying and asking every American to do is to adopt this new normal,” she told Sinclair Broadcast Group.
And, when asked if she would support a federal mask mandate, Dr. Birx said “every single public health official” would love it if “every single American wore a mask every single day.”
She had recently pushed Tennessee officials to require mask wearing in public, even in rural areas.
