Well, this debate is already a mess. As Twitchy reported, Kamala Harris lied right out of the gate by claiming that President Trump called the coronavirus a hoax. She didn’t have much of a plan to describe for when Joe Biden moves into the White House, but Vice President Pence said that Joe Biden opposed closing travel from China, calling it xenophobic.
We’ve all seen the video of Biden calling Trump xenophobic on the same day he announced he was closing the borders, but AP reporter Alexandra Jaffe stepped in with a fact-check: Joe Biden supported Trump’s travel restrictions, calling them the right move.
Fact check: Biden supported Trump’s restrictions on travel from China — yes, essentially calling them the right move. https://t.co/Iy38IUtJko

At the time he said it was xenophobic and you should be ashamed of yourself. https://t.co/fB0hlUpv3q

how many months later?

It doesn’t count when he does that months later.

How long after the initial decision?

Way after the fact. Democrats were busy on a fake impeachment at the time.

Bullshit meter winding up. He supported it months later but the democrats were telling people to “go down to Chinatown! Trump racists!”

Fact check: it wasn’t until much later.
If you’re going to do this, at least have your 💩 right.

He literally called it xenophobic. What are you talking about?
— BigJim (@BigJimNCPA) October 8, 2020
Wrong. At the time, he called the travel ban xenophobic. You must know that. Why are you stating otherwise?
