In an interview with CNBC, Vice President Mike Pence said he didn't believe "there is a need for a national mandate" and vowed that the Trump administration would "keep opening up America" despite a significant rise in confirmed Covid-19 cases.

Pence further stated that the Trump administration would support states that "are seeing rising cases every step of the way" and that "PPE supplies are strong, testing is strong, more therapeutic medicines are available every day."
