Biden in February 2020: “We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering.”
Biden’s administration will place new COVID rules on travelers from China almost 23 months after describing Trump as xenophobic for doing the same.

Then-presidential candidate Joe Biden trashed then-President Donald Trump’s restrictions on travelers from China due to COVID.
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 criticized Trump’s travel restrictions from those in Europe.
A wall will not stop the coronavirus.
Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it.
This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet — and we need a plan to combat it.

As COVID ravages China, Biden imposed restrictions on travelers from China:
The White House announced Wednesday it will require travelers from China to test negative for COVID-19 prior to arrival in the U.S. — a policy that will come less than two years after candidate Joe Biden suggested then-President Trump’s restrictions on travel from China were xenophobic.
A federal official said the test requirement will begin Jan. 5 and is necessary due to the lack of public data on China’s effectiveness in monitoring COVID-19. Travelers from China, regardless of nationality, will need to show a negative test taken no more than two days prior to their flight. Japan and India have established similar restrictions as China has loosened its “zero-Covid” lockdown policies in recent weeks — and China requires travelers from the U.S. to test negative.
It’s starting all over again.
I’m not shocked China loosened its Zero COVID policies. Anyone with a brain cell knows (especially since Leslie educates us on diseases!) that the outbreak was going to happen after keeping people inside.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but…this seems a bit fishy to me.
Also, does anyone trust anything coming out of China? The Communist Party is not really the most transparent when it comes to, well, anything.DONATE
