Joe Biden has issued a travel ban on several African countries because of the new omicron variant emerging from South Africa. Critics point out that Biden’s response is hypocritical. On Jan. 31, 2020, during the initial outbreak of the virus, President Donald Trump declared a temporary travel ban on certain Asian and African nations. A day later, Biden responded by saying Trump’s ban was xenophobic and driven by hate.
