Joe Biden Slammed for Calling Trump’s Travel Restrictions Racist, Xenophobic, Then Enacting His Own

President Joe Biden on Friday was slammed for enacting travel restrictions on eight countries due to a fresh coronavirus variant after calling former President Trump’s coronavirus travel restrictions in 2020 racist and xenophobic.

Trump issued travel restrictions on countries around the globe after the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic landed in the United States in 2020. Biden was quick to label those protectionist measures racist and xenophobic, like this tweet from February 1, 2020, following a travel-ban announcement:

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.

— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) February 1, 2020

On Friday, the world was awakened to a rapidly spreading coronavirus variant originating from African nations.

Biden issued a travel ban on the African nations Friday, causing many individuals to note his hypocrisy:

Is Biden’s new travel ban targeting Africa “racist”?

Biden/Harris just banned all travel from several African countries over the new COVID variant…

Remember that they campaigned AGAINST international travel bans to protect the US from the spread of disease. So much for stopping COVID in this first hundred days. pic.twitter.com/yK72WAizvI

Never forget that while Trump was banning Travel from China to try to stop the spread of COVID to America, Democrats were focused on Impeaching him.

Nancy Pelosi was against the travel ban just like Joe Biden was.

It was never about what’s right, but to punish normal Americans. https://t.co/6DpoDXDbur

We will see if Democrats hold this admin to the same “standard” and call this a xenophobic action by the Biden-Harris Administration since they are targeting African countries. https://t.co/NUH8WxI8pz

Democrats downplayed Covid until you learned you could rewrite voting rules.

Also New York handled Covid the worst while granting Cuomo emmys for covering up nursing home deaths.

Do your cardio, lift, get vaccinated if at risk, and live your life. https://t.co/blDnzQLEeB

When Trump imposed travel restrictions, Biden called him “xenophobic.”
