Trump was called nearly every name in the book for trying to stop travel from China from entering the United States in the early stages of the pandemic.
Leftists just couldn’t miss the opportunity to attack the President as he tried to slow down the spread of the coronavirus.
But now conservatives erupted at the hypocrisy of Biden banning travel from India to the United States.
Contrary to what the Left wants you to believe, former President Trump did everything he reasonably could have done to slow down the spread of coronavirus.
And one of the biggest moves Trump made to slow the spread was to ban travel from China.
When the ban took effect in late January of last year, China’s cases were on the rise and no one knew exactly what we were dealing with.
But of course leftists, who many of them are bought and paid for by Communist China, went on a warpath against Trump’s travel ban.
Pelosi claimed that the Chinese travel ban amounted to “scare tactics about people coming back into our country.”
When then Democrat Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was asked if he would have enforced a Chinese travel ban, he responded, “No. What you don’t want to do right now when you have a President who has propagated xenophobic, anti-immigrant sentiment from before he was elected. What we need to do is have the scientists take a hard look at what we need to do.”
And last but not least, when Joe Biden commented on the travel ban he tweeted out “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.”
In other settings, Biden even called Trump xenophobic for issuing a Chinese travel ban.
But now that Biden is President, one of his biggest moves so far against the coronavirus is to ban travel from India.
Biden’s ban on travel to India will affect non-United States citizens as India gets hit with the hardest wave it has had of a coronavirus so far.
And when this news became public, many conservatives were right to point out the hypocrisy.
Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert tweeted Friday, “As Biden bans flights from India, perhaps he should be reminded of a tweet he put out last year. Also, I thought travel bans were xenophobic.”

Republican Congresswoman Mary Miller of Illinois tweeted out the hypocrisy saying “Never Forget” with a picture of Biden’s old criticism of travel bans and news of his new India travel ban.

It’s amazing that the Left pounced on Trump when he issued a travel ban but then praises Biden for doing the same exact thing.
It’s almost as if the Left and the Fake News Media’s rage over Trump’s handling of coronavirus was just made up entirely for political reasons.
