FLOTUS took to Twitter to encourage Americans to wear face masks when social distancing is difficult. She said: “As the [Centre for Disease Control and Prevention] studies the spread of COVID-19, they recommend people wear cloth face coverings in public settings when social distancing can be hard to do. Remember this does not replace the importance of social distancing.”


Alongside the message was a picture of Melania wearing a surgical face mask and a video.

However, Twitter users hit back at the posts, pointing out that the First Lady’s messaging was at odds with what her husband was saying.

Indeed, her plea for people to wear masks was being ignored by the President, who said he could not see himself following the advice.

In fact, Mr said of wearing face coverings in public to stop the spread of the contagion: “You can do it. You don’t have to do it. I am choosing not to do it.”

The backlash to Melania’s posts included many people pointing out that her messaging would be stronger if it was supported by the President himself.

One person said in April: “Tell that to your old man before you tell it to us.

“And stop trying to be America’s Next Top Model: First Lady Edition.”

Another wrote: “It’s good to see the First Lady photographed with a mask on.
