Joe Biden vowed to implement a national mask mandate during his Democratic National Convention nomination acceptance speech on Thursday.
“We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask.” – Joe Biden. It shouldn’t be but those are brave words.

“We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask,” he said.
Biden linked wearing a mask to being patriotic.
Last week, Biden called for mask-wearing while Americans are “outside.”
“Let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide,” he said.
“Every single American should be wearing a mask when they are outside for the next three months at a minimum,” Biden said.
He did not specify any age group that may be exempt.
“Every governor should mandate mandatory mask wearing,” he continued, claiming that such a policy would save 40,000 lives.
Biden said such a rule has nothing to do with rights “but your responsibility as an American.”
