Four CEOs of food companies and the president of the American Farm Bureau Federation were told to remove their face masks before a meeting in Iowa Friday with Vice President Mike Pence, a startling video posted by The Intercept reveals.
Pence also without a mask appeared a short time later at the headquarters of the Hy-Vee grocery chain in West Des Moines for a roundtable discussion with the men in front of an audience.
Just hours earlier Pence was informed that his press secretary, Katie Miller, had tested positive for COVID-19. She and six others in Pence's entourage with suspected exposure to Miller were pulled from Pence's flight to Iowa just before takeoff. Pence's office denied news reports Sunday that he was self-isolating because of his exposure to Miller.
