"I think it's a great thing to wear a mask, get everything to get fast. But I do believe they have a time to fly."
But it was a major shift for the P who has refused to be seen by cameras with a mask. He has said before that he didn't want ot give the press the satisfaction. He's been under pressure to send a different message by wearing a mask as cv cases surge in parts of the country.

Still Abbott added, that's the last thing he wants to do.
3. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Congretional Democrats are still pushing for legislation to reform policing practices in the US. Speaking on MSNBC "policy" says both parties need to set aside their differences and work toward a bipartisan agreement.
