President Joe Biden wore two masks on Wednesday in the Oval Office to demonstrate his commitment to stopping the spread of the coronavirus.
The president wore two masks as he met with labor union leaders to discuss future infrastructure spending and his commitment to high-paying union jobs.
“Every once in a while as president, you get to invite close friends into the Oval,” Biden chuckled after reporters entered the room.
Biden began his presidency wearing one mask when reporters were in the Oval Office, but has also appeared in the Oval without opting to wear any mask.
During the presidential campaign, Biden was frequently spotted wearing two masks when he appeared in public, but his mask-wearing has not been consistent since his becoming president.
Since he was inaugurated, Biden has worn a number of different style masks while appearing in the Oval Office, or no mask at all.
