Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she would not impose mask or vaccine mandates if elected governor of Arkansas. During an interview on Friday, Sanders made the promise after the Washington Post claimed the Biden administration discussed updating mask requirements to combat the spread of the delta variant.
Sanders said “if I’m elected governor here in Arkansas, we will not have mask mandates.” The former press secretary to 45th President Trump also added she would not shut down churches, schools or prohibit large gatherings because she believes in freedom and responsibility.

She also called on Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to admit they were wrong when they cast doubt on Operation Warp Speed and give Trump and his administration the credit they deserve for their part in helping to push the COVID-19 vaccine out to the public quickly and effectively.
