The Biden Admin is taking heat for some blatant hypocrisy.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, the Biden Administration has reinstated COVID-19 testing requreiemtns for travelers entering the United States from China —a policy Biden called “xenophobic” under President Trump.
Stephen L. Miller of The Spectator was quick to point out the blatant hypocrisy by sharing the story along with tweets from Biden and former President Trump.
“I always treated the Chinese Virus very seriously, and have done a very good job from the beginning, including my very early decision to close the ‘borders’ from China – against the wishes of almost all,” Trump tweeted on March 18, 2020. “Many lives were saved. The Fake News new narrative is disgraceful & false!”
Biden responded at the time: “Stop the xenophobic fear-mongering. Be honest. Take responsibility. Do your job.”

From The Daily Wire:
Biden’s team claimed a week later that the then-former vice president was not criticizing Trump’s coronavirus travel restrictions.
“Vice President Biden was stressing the enormity of the coronavirus threat and the urgent need for a comprehensive response strategy grounded in science and strong government coordination,” said then-campaign spokesman Andrew Bates. “Meanwhile, Donald Trump was disregarding warnings from medical and intelligence experts about the virus. The Vice President has decried Trump’s xenophobia for years, and was saying that it shouldn’t influence the U.S. approach to this outbreak. This was not in reference to coronavirus travel restrictions. Travel restrictions, when supported by science, advocated by public health officials, and backed by a full strategy can be warranted. Travel restrictions can buy time; but here, the time they bought for preparation was squandered when Trump used it to downplay, rather than ready the country for, the disease.”
