Trump to tour Ford’s ventilator assembly plant near Detroit


WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump will learn how ventilators are made during a visit to Michigan.

Trump's visit Thursday to a repurposed Ford Motor Co. plant near Detroit comes a day after he criticized top state leaders and threatened to withhold federal funding over the state's mail-in balloting effort.

Hovering over Trump's appearance is whether he will wear a face covering. Trump so far has refused to wear a face mask in public.

Federal health officials encourage it to slow the spread of coronavirus, and Ford says it requires everyone in its factories to wear a mask.

The state attorney general says mask-wearing is also Michigan law.
