Whenever Bozo is criticised for his utterly inept and incompetent response to the Coronavirus pandemic, he (and his brainwashed Trumpanzees) always harp on about the travel ban to and from China, how early he made the call and how many millions of lives it allegedly saved.
What a load of steaming bullshit!
Bozo's travel ban wasn't even his idea (he opposed it initially) and it was not just ineffective, it probably made the situation worse.
Here are some facts . . .
The travel ban was a standard recommendation made by the Department of Health and Human Services. It wasn't Bozo's idea and he initially rejected the idea. HHS secretary Alex Azar announced the travel restrictions on 31 January 2020 effective 2 Feb.
It was a travel restriction, not a travel ban and it applied to non-US citizens other than immediate family of US citizens and permanent residents. The virus doesn't pick and choose victims based on citizenship.
300 000 people arrived in the USA from China during the month of January. it's safe to say that the horse had bolted by the time Bozo slapped on his meaningless restrictions.
The travel restrictions caused thousands of people to rush to airports when screening and testing were nowhere near ready to handle the influx and this likely seeded the virus in the USA more than any other factor.
Finally, Bozo blathers on and on about how unpopular his decision was and how the Democrats were all opposed to his travel ban. Where is this evidence for this lie? Who are the Democrats who opposed the travel restrictions? Huh?
