President Trump visited Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Saturday. He was accompanied by military leaders, and followed by staff - all wearing masks - inside Walter Reed.

Wearing masks is required inside of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center when a safe social distance cannot be established.

This marks the first time Trump has been seen in public in front of the press wearing a mask.

While at Walter Reed, Trump is set to visit combat wounded service members and their families, as well as healthcare staff who have been caring for COVID-19 patients during the pandemic.
