    Question; Do you support the ban, did you support Trump’s flight bans/restrictions from China and E.U.?

    I did, however, I now question their effectiveness.....”timing is everything”, and here’s an irrational statement; Government(s) should impose a flight ban from XYZ country two weeks prior to their first confirmed case.

    Of course authorities have to do something, and statements such as; “There’s nothing we can do” would certainly crash global markets.

    The claim was that, following Covid, Democrats called trump a racist for imposing a travel ban. That simply isn't true.

    Biden said it was no time for xenophobia. He did not call Trump racist, and he certainly didn't even mention travel bans during that speech. It isn't even clear that he was aware of the travel restrictions that had been imposed, because it happened the same day.

    You guys take something and expand it out of all proportion, and create a lie. It would be just as accurate for me to say that Trump called Nazis "good people".

    And since the person to whom I was responding specifically linked the accusation of racism to the travel bans related to Covid, the other link is irrelevant.

    You.
    Fail.
    Again.

    Throughout this pandemic I've been VERY consistent. Better safe than sorry is how I've approached it. And bringing Americans home from a region with this new virus is foolhardy, unless there is an enforceable quarantine plan in place.

    If Trump had done this the news would have said it was racist.

    People have such short memories. Maybe the public is not remembering how the news commentators we're responding when Trump blocked off travel to China at the first news of the coronavirus.

    Like the book 1984 said, "down the memory hole"...

    BS. No Democrats - at least not in Congress - said it he travel restrictions were racist.
    That’s another RW lie.

    Bidens a racist.

    He also recently called a black man "negro".

    They're listed as left-wing. Here's another link - AJ himself has often used this site to prove some other site is far-right or suchlike.

    If you really think they aren't Democrats ... *shrugs*

    That doesn’t represent all Democrats, the party as a whole, or even most of them.
    It is an opinion piece.
    So no - Democrats did not call the Covid travel restrictions racist.
    That’s a RW lie. You may be so indoctrinated that you believe the lie, but that doesn’t make it true. Because it isn’t.

    No. I did not claim Democrats in Congress claimed it. You also may have not been watching the news at that time, or maybe you simply honestly just do not remember it. But others here do.

    Sorry. The only thing we can do is toss out the power hungry political creatures that do stupid things like lockdowns and mandates. Once a respiratory virus is out nothing can stop it.

    So which Democrats claimed the Covid travel restrictions were racist?

    Because I can’t find any links to any Democrats (as in elected or high in the party) Democrats saying that.

    Moving the goalposts.

    Someone wanted proof that Democrats thought Trump was racist. No one said "Show me where ALL or MOST ... " If you don't think this represents what Dems were thinking, even some of them - *shrugs* And I'll say it again: Xenophobic - dog-whistle for racist for the LW.

    Yet, you were among those who were convinced that he would be re-elected despite his catastrophic management of the pandemic.

    And now I'm the one who should admit that Trump would have gotten a second term if his disastrous decisions hadn't sent 500,000 Americans to the cemetery?

    Despite China, countries that took the threat of the virus seriously from the beginning, where such a large part of the population isn't resistant to science and doesn't see conspiracy theories everywhere have a much better record than US.

    You voted for someone who lied about the severity of the pandemic, and you would vote for him again.

    So let me laugh when you attack Biden for wanting to end it.

    Wrong. As soon as Covid hit and the lies began, i knew he was screwed. He didnt have a chance. I didn’t vote for him in 2016 or 2020.

    BTW. Biden has sent more people to death than Trump. Sucks to be you supporting someone who’s handled the pandemic WORSE than Trump.

    No.

    And even if it were true, it wouldn't be his fault.

    You can't put water back behind a collapsed dam.

    And this pandemic is now the business of the unvaccinated. Who happen to be overwhelmingly conservative.

    This is why Trump gets booed when he tries to convince them to get their shot.
