Trump blasts Michigan AG over concern he didn’t wear mask at Ford plant

President Trump slammed Michigan’s attorney general on Twitter after she said she would have a “very serious conversation” with Ford Motor Co. for allowing him to visit an Ypsilanti plant without wearing a mask.

“The Wacky Do Nothing Attorney General of Michigan, Dana Nessel, is viciously threatening Ford Motor Company for the fact that I inspected a Ventilator plant without a mask,” the president said in a tweet.

“Not their fault, & I did put on a mask. No wonder many auto companies left Michigan, until I came along!” he added.

Trump did wear a mask in one part of the plant, which has been repurposed to make medical supplies, but refused to don it in front of reporters.

“I had one on before,” Trump he reporters during his visit. “I wore one on in this back area. I didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it. In the back area I did have a mask on. I had goggles and a mask right back there.”

At least one photographer snapped a photo that was posted on social media showing Trump wearing a mask that featured the presidential seal, Fox News reported.

Nessel said the state would speak to Ford about the violation of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order requiring masks in enclosed public spaces.
