SOUNDBITE (English) President Donald Trump:"The CDC is recommending that Americans wear a basic cloth or fabric mask that can be either purchased online or simply made it home, probably material that you'd have at home. These face coverings can be easily washed or reused. I want to emphasize that the CDC is not recommending the use of medical grade or surgical grade masks.
