      @Apex 8 it is because Biden has banned travel to all countries with the covid variant NOT just countries that have brown people which is what trump did, trump even banned countries that had NO covid at that time

      @psycobleach46 tullis yes they did, bruh just look it up.

    • @WheatBread you are correct South Africa is diverse. But even if it weren’t, our President has the ban because of the variant form of the virus! Nothing more, nothing less!!

  5. But i thought that was evil? Wow how things change what a joke the dems have become

    So we are keeping out the South Africans because of Covid, but encouraging the South Americans to come despite Covid. What insane logic is this?

  7. Sure, he does that, but lets the caravan in…makes good sense, Joe.

  8. Wait a minute ! Why is no one freaking out ? Didn’t everybody scream their lungs out when Trump did travel bans ????

  9. I guess it’s “ok” now that it’s Biden

  10. Annnddd cue the Curb Your Enthusiasm music lol. The hypocrisy is astonishing

  11. Trump does it- Racist
    Biden- “C’mon man, I’m protecting the nation

      George Jefferson there is NO hypocrisy

      @psycobleach46 tullis There absolutely is. When Trump banned travel in the beginning from China, he was a racist. Now that Biden does it it is to protect us.

      @psycobleach46 tullis they slammed trump for travel restrictions, and called him racist for it. Yet, they’re not doing this with Biden. That’s the hypocrisy.

    • @psycobleach46 tullis Trump bans travel from China- called Xenophobic
      Biden bans travel from South Africa- “what’s the big deal, man?’
      Are you really that stupid?

    • What. Is he racist for denying them. The right to America. Didn’t the media blame Trump for that? ….wow the media brainwashed you 👏

  14. When Trump did this Biden said he was xenophobic.

  15. Sounds xenophobic to me🤷‍♂️. But I’m sure the libs have short term memory rn tho it’s ok 👌🏻

  16. I’m calling this the “Black African Travel Ban”.

  17. “StOp tHe XeNoPhObIc FeArMoNgErInG” – Biden when Trump pretty much did the same thing, but with China.

  18. Media is gonna have hella-buff arms carrying Biden’s water for 4 years.

  19. “This applys to non US citizens who have been in South Africa.”

    Goodness people, listen before you speak.
    This isn’t a black travel ban. Also. There’s lots of white people in South Africa. You’re being racist by assuming all South Africans are black because the word Africa is in the name.

    Think people

  20. Yeahhh because travelers are a “threat” to the most infected country in the world, the US is a joke.
