    The subset of people banned from travel here being the universe of non-Americans, every last person that could be banned.

    Lazy or what?
    While Democrats in March attack President Donald Trump for not doing enough to end the coronavirus epidemic, the same Democrats were bashing the president’s decision to ban travel from China in January.
    In January, President Trump banned all foreign nationals who were in China during the time of the coronavirus outbreak from entering the United States. Many pundits and health experts have since credited this decision with helping to slow the coronavirus pandemic on American shores.

    However, at the time former vice president Joe Biden railed against the decision.

    During a campaign rally, Biden said that “In moments like this, this is where the credibility of a president is most needed, as he explains what we should and should not do.”


    “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia, hysterical xenophobia, to uh, and fear mongering,” Biden continued.

    There is no mention of the travel restrictions in either of those quotes.
    Do you disagree with the first quote? In difficult times, the credibility of the president is important. Do you disagree?

    You might disagree that Trump has a record of hysteria and xenophobia, but do you ever believe it is the right time for hysteria and xenophobia?

    Seriously - show me a quote where Biden said Trump's travel ban was racist.

    These are lies issued to and being parroted by hardcore Trumpers. As is usual, the cover story does not comport with documented reality.

    I had Biden calling me xenophobic. … He called me a racist,
    because of the fact that he felt it was a racist thing
    to stop people from China coming in!”

    Trump had been conned by Xi into ignoring his own intelligence agencies as well as expert epidemiologists.

    As reported by the conservative Washington Examiner:

    Trump doesn't listen to his own people, he thinks he knows everything better than the experts

    And don’t forget that Biden never said he was opposed to whatever travel restrictions were actually enacted. I can’t find any comments by Biden on the travel restrictions at all.

    He did say that it was not the time for xenophobia, but he didn’t comment on the travel restrictions.

    Despite this, PINO supporters will still parrot the following lies as if it’s gospel:
    - they’ll claim Dirty Donny closed the borders or banned flights from China
    - they’ll claim Biden opposed the restrictions
    - they’ll claim Biden said that Bonespurs was racist for introducing the travel restrictions

    None of which is true, but they won’t care. They’ll keep saying it and probably believe it’s true.

    Trump's penchant for swooning over strongmen is a conspicuous weakness, one they exploit.

    Spot on!

    When Governor Inslee was asked by Pence what the administration could do to help, he recommended following the science and telling the truth.

    Such sound and unchallengeable advice elicited a churlish response:

    Screen Shot 2020-03-29 at 11.13.04 AM.png
    "He's a SNAKE!"
    I assume that the Governor will now be consigned to that herpetological realm by hardcore Trumpers who swallow their masters' every emission.

    What the hell difference does it make how the Chinese responded. Your statement was misleading and factually incorrect. Now you know.

    Yes SUBSET! Do you think only Chinese nationals are traveling to and from China? Surely you aren't that ignorant.

    When in doubt, trot out Soros' lackeys. Yes, it was just a coincidence that Biden tweeted about Trump's xenophobic policies on February 1, the day after Trump announced the China travel ban. You could not have less credibility if you tried.

    Right, and that universe of non-Americans was a subset, very good! Now, that's great if only Chinese could catch the virus but.... you fill in the blank. You can do it!

    Your Trumpy squirming fails to redress his blatant lies. You cannot cite a reputable source that affirms Trump's fake claim.

    “I had Biden calling me xenophobic. … He called me a racist,
    because of the fact that he felt it was a racist thing
    to stop people from China coming in!”


    Even the conservative Washington Examiner readily exposed his phony claim regarding a travel ban. His restrictions only keep out foreign nationals who'd been in China within 14 days. Americans, despite prolonged exposure, were free to enter the U.S.

    Does fact checking include going to the Biden campaign and giving them the opportunity to reframe their response to the ban of foreign travelers the day after Trump announced the ban and giving them the opportunity to change the meaning to make the correct observation appear questionable. Whenever Soros fails to go all in painting a Trump statement as a lioe, it's because he was caught.

    Andrew Bates, a Biden campaign spokesman, said Biden “has decried Trump’s xenophobia for years, and was saying that it shouldn’t influence the U.S. approach to this outbreak. This was not in reference to coronavirus travel restrictions.”

    You lefties are easy to read.

    WTF? Not a subset of Chinese, as subset of travelers that might travel to and from china! Hello?
    The "ban" was announced on Jan 31, days after China embarked on a new 1000 bed hospital. We should have, at a minimum, quarantined EVERYONE coming into the country from China. It would have been warranted and there was data to justify it.

    I didn't call it a travelers ban...nor did the President. It was a Chinese travel ban specific to Chinese.

    You said: "Within day Trump banned travel with China,"


    Which is 100% ignorance or dishonesty. Everyone can judge for themselves which it is.

    Of course there was a travel ban with China then. This was done by the President and with the advice of the experts.

    What is sad is the left fought him on it, Biden, repeated the Chinese line that it was xenophobic, left wing media called it an overreaction.....sad really
