Sound Familiar? Biden Places Travel Ban on 8 African Nations Due to COVID Variant

Joe Biden just placed a travel ban on 8 different African nations due to the latest COVID variant.

The very same Joe Biden who called President Donald Trump a racist xenophobe for placing travel restrictions on several nations due to the coronavirus last year. 

Biden is restricting travel to South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi.

He is doing so on the advice of Anthony Fauci, America’s most untrusted doctor.

The media has also reported on the ruling by the Biden Administration, but not with the same accusations of racism they threw at the Trump Administration for taking similar actions in 2020.

Unironically, CNN reports on Biden’s travel ban:

President Joe Biden announced Friday the US will restrict travel from South Africa and seven other countries starting Monday as a new coronavirus variant has emerged.

Acting on advice from the nation’s top infectious diseases expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Biden administration will restrict travel from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi.

Biden on Friday night signed the official proclamation restricting the travel of those “physically present” in the countries during the “14-day period preceding their entry, or attempted entry into the United States.”

The proclamation includes a list of those exempted from the new restrictions, including US citizens, lawful permanent residents and noncitizens who are the spouses of citizens or permanent residents.

It says it will remain in effect until terminated by the President and will not apply to any flights scheduled to arrive in the US that depart prior to 12:01 a.m. EST on Monday.

Fox News has more on Biden’s sudden decision:

It’s unclear what additional information, if any, prompted the administration’s decision to ban travel from eight countries on Friday. In a statement, Biden indicated that he made the decision after meeting with Fauci.

“This morning I was briefed by my chief medical advisor, Dr. Tony Fauci, and the members of our COVID response team, about the Omicron variant, which is spreading through Southern Africa,” he said. “As a precautionary measure until we have more information, I am ordering additional air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries.”

Conservatives Called Out the Hypocrisy

Here’s Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi calling President Trump’s travel restrictions on several African nations last year racist:

The media is following the lead of their corrupt handlers:

The script has been flipped, not that the media or the lying democrats really care about the truth.
