Former President Donald Trump slammed President Joe Biden and his administration Tuesday as the Centers for Disease Control announced that masks are to be required indoors amid the spread of the new delta variant.

"We won't go back. We won't mask our children. Joe Biden and his Administration learned nothing from the last year. Brave Americans learned how to safely and responsibly live and fight back," Trump said in a statement.

Trump's statement is referencing a decision Tuesday by the CDC recommending that people, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks indoors.

"Don't surrender to COVID. Don't go back! Why do Democrats distrust the science? Don't let this happen to our children or our Country," Trump said.
