Trump mocks Fox News presenter Laura Ingraham for wearing a mask at his campaign rally

During a campaign rally in Michigan on Friday, US president Donald Trump made fun of TV host Laura Ingraham for wearing a mask, calling it "politically correct".

"Where is Laura? Where is she? Where is Laura? I can't recognize you. Is that a mask? No way. Are you wearing a mask? I've never seen her in a mask, look at you. Oh, she's being very politically correct. Woah," Trump said.

The United States recorded its 9 millionth case on Friday, nearly 3% of the population, with almost 229,000 dead since the outbreak of the pandemic early this year, according to a Reuters tally of publicly reported data.
