Lamar Alexander says Millions Who Admire President Donald Trump Would Follow His Lead If He Wore a Mask When Appropriate

 

U.S. SenateMaryville, TN – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today told Manu Raju on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that “millions of Americans who admire President Donald Trump would follow his lead if he wore a mask when it’s appropriate.” Senator Alexander, who is chairman of the Senate health committee, said that “It also would help to get rid of this political debate that if you’re for President Trump, you don’t wear a mask, and if you’re against President Donald Trump, you do wear a mask.”

“Most of the time he’s with people who have been tested, he’s been tested,” Alexander continued, “but there are times when he could wear a mask or the vice president could wear a mask. I think it would be a sign of strength if he would from time to time wear a mask and remind everyone it’s a good way [to slow the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus].”

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “Skeptics of President Donald Trump’s bold way of negotiating trade ate a bit of crow this month. That includes this Iowa senator,” Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) writes in the Des Moines Register.
 
“I’m not a big fan of tariffs. So, when the president imposed tariffs as leverage in world trade talks, I was skeptical. And yet, here we are starting the fourth year of his presidency and President Trump has succeeded in securing two major trade agreements that are good for America and good for Iowa.”

Written by Curtis Johnson
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 68

Nashville, TN – Next week, the full House will consider legislation that seeks to place the nation’s motto, “In God We Trust,” in all Tennessee schools. House Bill 2368 calls for the motto be displayed in a prominent location. The establishment of this motto was signed into law in 1956 by President Eisenhower, but was imprinted on U.S. coins and currency long before that time.

According to a 2003 joint poll by USA Today, CNN, and Gallup, 90% of Americans support the inscription “In God We Trust” on U.S. coins.

In 2006, on the 50th anniversary of its adoption, the United States Senate reaffirmed “In God We Trust” as the official national motto of the United States of America
