Thursday on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime-time show,” Green Bay, WI Mayor Eric Genrich (D) stated if President Donald Trump had actually encouraged American’s to wear masks, “10s of countless lives” would have been saved.

Host Chris Cuomo said, “The pandemic is going to play big for people in terms of how they feel on the state and federal level this was dealt with. The return or the revival of cases seems to be linked to a relaxing of seclusion and mask-wearing. What is your concern about what the president is going to say, and what do you want people to know?”

Genrich said, “Well, I do believe it’s exceptionally regrettable that the president has actually selected to politicize the act of wearing a mask. It’s an incredibly apathetic step to take, you know, the idea that wearing a mask is somehow a political statement is ridiculous when, obviously, you have the CDC and public health specialists all the way from the nationwide level to the regional level encouraging people to use masks.”

He added, “If the president had taken the exact same step, had actually all along been encouraging people to take this step to use masks, to keep individuals safe, I think, you understand, the outcome would have been a lot more positive. We would have saved tens of thousands of lives, and we would not see the uptick in cases that we have actually seen sadly in Wisconsin in current days therefore numerous other states around the nation.”
