‘I don’t think there’s a need for a national mandate.’

— Vice President Mike Pence

Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday rejected the need for a national mandate to wear face masks to slow the spread of the coronavirus, telling CNBC that there isn’t a ”one-size all” approach to combating the pandemic in the U.S.

The vice president spoke on the business network following the release of the stronger-than-expected June jobs report, which showed that the U.S. economy recouped 4.8 million jobs last month. Still, the economy’s rebound from the virus may already be suffering a setback from a renewed surge in cases.
