Donald Trump says 'I'm all for' wearing a coronavirus mask, 'I look like the Lone Ranger'.

President Donald Trump encouraged Americans to use masks, saying he himself has a dark black one that makes him look like The Lone Ranger.

In a complete 180 from his earlier stance, the president revealed he's now "all for masks" during a Wednesday afternoon interview with Fox Business.

"I'm all for masks. if I were in a group of people and I was close...oh I would wear one, I have," he told reporter Blake Burman.

"Usually I'm not in that position. If I were in a tight situation with people, absolutely."

Trump then described a "dark black" mask he wears from time to time, saying that the facial covering made him look "sort of like The Lone Ranger".

"I sort of liked the way I look," he remarked.

The president has recently warmed up to the idea of wearing a mask after declaring he wouldn't wear a face mask in April, contrary to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
