Not that person, but it is just speculation that he’s ordering people to not wear them. He himself (and Mike Pence) is very publicly choosing to not wear them for the cameras but is actually wearing them off camera.

Some of the dialogue from these articles are definitely spun somewhat but it’s very clear that he picks and chooses when to wear masks and very specifically is choosing his public image to be one without a mask. As for his motivations? We can guess but won’t ever know for sure.
