In a stern if not angry voice while addressing the nation (watch the video below), President Joe Biden demanded that air travelers obey the rules about wearing masks and behave with respect.
He warned that fines are now being doubled for anyone who does not obey masking rules.
Specifically, Biden stated:
“Tonight, I’m announcing that the Transportation Safety Administration – the TSA – will double the fines on travelers that refuse to mask. If you break the rules, be prepared to pay. And by the way, show some respect. The anger you see on television toward flight attendants and others doing their job is wrong. It’s ugly.”
