This week, Joe Biden put a travel ban in place regarding the new COVID strain found in South Africa.
The situation was eerily similar to what happened during the early days of the pandemic when Trump shut down travel to China and Biden called it Xenophobic and racist.
So, why is this ban okay and Trump’s not?
Explain Yourself, Joe
On Friday, Biden announced that the United States would “suspend and restrict the entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of noncitizens” from the eight African nations effective Monday.
He continued, “As a precautionary measure until we have more information, I am ordering additional air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries.
“These new restrictions will take effect on November 29.
“As we move forward, we will continue to be guided by what the science and my medical team advises.”
Other than the fact the virus appears to be mutating quicklier than other strands of COVID, it will be weeks before researchers have the data to back this up.
The very same circumstance was in place in February 2020, and this was how Biden responded to Trump’s move…
We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.

Biden had also stated that travel bans would be useless against the virus…

Biden has a lot of explaining to do here and the media needs to do its job and call him out over this.
They cannot let up until Joe Biden openly admits that Trump’s 2020 travel ban was the right move to make at the time.
Until he says that, they simply cannot let up because the American people need to know and understand just how badly Biden and Democrats politicized this pandemic to gain power.
