The Hill reports:
Speaking in Kentucky, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that while he talks to President Trump frequently, he hasn’t been to the White House in person since Aug. 6.
“Because my impression was their approach to how to handle this was different from mine and what I insisted we do in the Senate, which was to wear a mask and practice social distancing,” McConnell told reporters.
McConnell’s comments come in the week after President Trump and roughly two dozen people in his orbit have tested positive for the coronavirus. “I think the message I have for everybody is … wear your mask and practice social distancing. It’s the only way we know of to prevent the spread until we get a vaccine,” he said.
