Remember when Trump banned travel from China due to COVID and Joe Biden called the decision xenophobic? Of course you do, because it really happened.
This weekend, when a reporter asked Biden press secretary Jen Psaki about Biden’s new travel bans and what they should be called, she tried to claim that this never happened.
She tried to spin it by bringing up the ‘Muslim ban’ that was not actually a Muslim ban.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Peter Doocy questions Psaki about Biden flip-flop on travel restrictions: ‘Biden called it ‘xenophobic’
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy questioned press secretary Jen Psaki on why President Biden has seemingly changed his stance on travel restrictions after criticizing former President Donald Trump for imposing a travel ban on China early last year.
“When President Trump was imposing travel restrictions in March, specifically on China, then-candidate Biden called it ‘xenophobic’ and ‘fearmongering,’” Doocy said to Psaki.
Psaki responded by pointing to Trump’s alleged “Muslim ban” as the policy Biden had previously disagreed with, claiming that the new president has always been supportive of travel bans designed to stop the spread of COVID-19.
“I don’t think that’s quite a fair articulation,” she said. “The president has been clear that he felt the Muslim ban was xenophobic. He overturned the Muslim ban. He also, though, has supported … travel restrictions in order to keep the American people safe, to ensure that we are getting the pandemic under control. That’s been part of his policy.”
Again, Biden did call the China travel ban xenophobic and we all know it.
This administration is going to keep doing this and most of the media will let them get away with it.
