Donald Trump retweets post mocking Joe Biden for wearing a mask at Memorial Day commemorations on his first trip out of the house in two months after the president again refused to cover his face

Donald Trump has retweeted a post mocking Joe Biden for wearing a face mask at Memorial Day commemorations while the president refused to don one at a ceremony in Virginia. 
The president took aim at his Democrat rival Monday evening, when he retweeted the post from Fox News political analyst Brit Hume.
'This might help explain why Trump doesn’t like to wear a mask in public. Biden today,' the Tweet read, alongside a close-up shot of Biden sporting a dark face mask and sunglasses at a Memorial Day event. 
Biden and his wife Jill covered their faces to lay a wreath at a Delaware veterans park during his first trip out of the house in more than two months.
However, at ceremonies in Virginia and Maryland, Trump and First Lady Melania decided against face masks.

Trump faced a backlash on social media over his decision to shun a mask at the services honor the lives of veterans, after he has repeatedly refused to wear one despite the Centers for Disease and Prevention advising Americans to wear them in public places.  
'Trump rly be out here with shade orange dye #3 spray tan on his skin but the simpleton won’t wear a face mask because it’s embarrassing,' one person tweeted. 

Another slammed his unwillingness to lead by example: 'Yes. Trump doesn't wear a face mask because of his narcissistic vanity. And denial of science. Worst leadership qualities for a president.'
Others said that his rival Biden wearing a mask showed the Democrat 'cares for American people'. 
'@realDonaldTrump this picture of Biden with a face mask on shows respect, courage and he cares for American people. Not to mention he doesn't want The damn Corona virus! He's in the vulnerable category. So people say what they will, he's got more class,' one person tweeted.

Biden and his wife, Jill, laid a wreath of white flowers tied with a white bow, and bowed their heads in silence at the Delaware Memorial Bridge Veterans Memorial Park. 
Since abruptly canceling a March 10 rally in Cleveland at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee has waged much of his campaign from his home in Wilmington. 
When Biden emerged on Monday, he and Jill were both seen wearing face masks.
In contrast, Trump chose once again to be mask-less as he participated in a ceremony honoring the nation's fallen service members at Arlington Cemetery Monday before flying to Baltimore with Melania for a second service at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine.

Biden's appearance was a milestone in a presidential campaign that has largely been frozen by the coronavirus outbreak. 
While the feasibility of traditional events such as rallies and the presidential conventions are in doubt, Biden's emergence suggests he won't spend the nearly five months that remain until the election entirely at home.
The coronavirus has upended virtually all aspects of American life and changed the terms of the election. Trump's argument that he deserves another term in office because of the strong economy has evaporated as unemployment rises to levels not seen since the Great Depression.
As a longtime senator and former vice president, Biden is trying to position himself as someone with the experience and empathy to lead the country out of a crisis.
Biden has adjusted to the coronavirus era by building a television studio in his home, which he's used to make appearances on news programs, late-night shows and virtual campaign events. Some of those efforts have been marred by technical glitches and other awkward moments.

Some Democratic strategists have openly worried that Biden is ceding too much ground to Trump by staying home. The president himself has knocked Biden for essentially campaigning from his basement.
Biden's advisers say they plan to return to normal campaign activities at some point, including travel to battleground states. But they're in no hurry, preferring to defer to the advice of health experts and authorities' stay-at-home and social distancing recommendations.
At 77, Biden is among the nation's senior population thought to be especially vulnerable to the effects of the coronavirus - though so is Trump, who turns 74 next month.
'We will never make any choices that put our staff or voters in harm´s way,' Biden campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon said recently, adding that the campaign would resume more traditional activities 'when safety allows, and we will not do that a day sooner.'
Trump, who was spending Memorial Day visiting Arlington National Cemetery and the Fort McHenry national monument in Baltimore, has not resumed the large rallies that were the hallmark of his 2016 campaign and presidency but has begun traveling outside Washington in recent weeks. 
He visited a facility producing face masks in Arizona and a Ford plant in Michigan that has been converted to produce medical and protective equipment.

Trump even played golf at his club in Virginia on the weekend, hoping that others will follow his lead and return to some semblance of normal life and gradually help revive an economy in free fall.
It was the president's first trip to one of his money-making properties since March 8, when he visited his private golf club in West Palm Beach. 
The World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a pandemic on March 11, and Trump followed with the national emergency declaration two days later.
Biden's campaign wasted little time producing an online video offering blurry, faraway footage of Trump on the golf course, imposed over images evoking the virus ravaging the nation as the number of Americans dead from the pandemic approached 100,000. 
The video concluded by proclaiming: 'The death toll is still rising. The president is playing golf.'

Trump fired right back at Biden late Sunday night when the president attempted to justify how he had been spending his weekend in a couple of tweets stressing his playing golf was part of his exercise regimen. 
'Sleepy Joe's representatives have just put out an ad saying that I went to play golf (exercise) today. They think I should stay in the White House at all times. What they didn't say is that it's the first time I've played golf in almost 3 months, that Biden was constantly vacationing, relaxing & making shady deals with other countries...'
Biden's ad came just days after the presidential hopeful made his 'ain't black' comment during an interview with popular radio host, Charlamagne tha God, on The Breakfast Club. 
Near the end of Biden's appearance on the radio program, Charlamagne pressed him on reports that he is considering Minnesota Sen Amy Klobuchar, to be his vice presidential running mate. The host told Biden that black voters 'saved your political life in the primaries' and 'have things they want from you'.
Biden said that 'I guarantee you there are multiple black women being considered. Multiple.'
A Biden aide then sought to end the interview, prompting the host to say: 'You can't do that to black media.'
Biden responded: 'I do that to black media and white media,' and said his wife needed to use the television studio.
'If you've got a problem figuring out whether you're for me or for Trump, then you ain't black.'

Biden was then accused of racism and later admitted he 'shouldn't have been such a wise guy' when he made the presumptuous remark about the black vote last week. 
Charlamagne told MSNBC on Sunday: 'I don't even care about the words and the lip service. The apology is cool but the best apology is actually a black agenda. You know, they got to make some real policy commitments to black people.' 
Black voters helped resurrect Biden's campaign in this year's primaries with a second-place finish in the Nevada caucuses and a resounding win in the South Carolina primary after he'd started with embarrassing finishes in overwhelmingly white Iowa and New Hampshire.
Sixty-one percent of black voters supported Biden during the primary season, according to AP VoteCast surveys across 17 states that voted in February and March.
Biden is now seeking to maintain his standing with black voters while building the type of multiracial and multigenerational coalition that twice elected Barack Obama.
