On Monday, 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden admitted that his proposal to implement a national mask mandate is unconstitutional.

Time and again, Biden has called for a federal mandate and often points out how such an action was a prime example of how he would handle the coronavirus pandemic differently as president than Donald Trump has.

Biden has repeatedly said Trump “failed to act,” but also admitted to CBS 5 in Arizona, “There’s a constitutional issue whether the federal government can issue such a mandate.”

Biden Flip-Flops On National Mask Mandate

Biden added, “I don’t think constitutionally they could, so I wouldn’t issue a mandate.”

Last week Biden denied that he ever wanted such a mandate and insisted he was a “constitutionalist.”

The former vice president said he would ask state and local authorities to impose a mask mandate.

“I’m a constitutionalist,” Biden said. “You can’t do things the Constitution does not allow you the power to do.”

Yet during the Democratic National Convention, a national mask mandate was called for by Biden, a point he made clear and certain.

“We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask,” Biden declared.

A week before the Dem convention, Biden even said Americans should wear masks while they are “outside.”

Would Biden’s Mandate Apply To Nancy Pelosi?

“Let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide,” Biden said. “Every single American should be wearing a mask when they are outside for the next three months at a minimum.”

Biden said that doing so was “your responsibility as an American.”

Would this “responsibility” apply to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi?
