Chris Wallace, the moderator of the first presidential debate on Tuesday, said in an interview on Friday that Trump showed no signs of illness at the event.
But he also noted that Trump’s family members present at the debate did not abide by the mask mandates put in place by the Cleveland Clinic.
“The interesting thing was that the Cleveland Clinic said that everybody in the hall with the exception of the president the vice president and myself had to wear a mask,” Wallace said.
Trump’s group wore masks as they entered the hall but took them off when they sat down. According to NBC News reporters who attended the debate, a doctor from the Cleveland Clinic tried to offer some of the group masks but was waived away.
Wallace added that Trump’s positive test will recenter the focus of the election
