US President Donald Trump has worn a mask in a public place for the first time.

He did this while visiting Walter Reed Military Hospital, near Washington.

It was there that he met a number of soldiers injured in clashes while on duty with the country’s army.

‘There is a time and place to spend it’ said President Trump, a man who has refused to do so since the start of this pandemic.
