‘Nakedly Xenophobic’: Biden Now Demands Chinese Travelers Take Covid Test Before Entering U.S.

Oh my, how the tides have turned. President Joe Biden has come full circle on his thoughts regarding coronavirus….more accurately called, the China virus?

In January 2020, former President Donald Trump placed travel restrictions on those coming from China, where the virus is believed to have originated. In May 2020, Biden declared that those restrictions were racist. He described them as “denials, delays and distractions, many of which were nakedly xenophobic.”

Nakedly xenophobic. Hmmmm. What an interesting choice of words, considering the Biden Administration is now requiring travelers from China to provide a negative coronavirus test in order to enter the United States. A policy that will begin on January 5, 2023.

Politico reports:

The Biden administration announced new testing requirements Wednesday for travelers coming to the U.S. from China — a response to soaring Covid infections in China and a sign of increased worry about the potential emergence of new variants.

Beginning Jan. 5, anyone older than 2 years old arriving from China, Hong Kong or Macau will need to show a negative result from a Covid-19 test taken within two days of their flight. The requirement applies to all passengers regardless of nationality or vaccination status, those connecting through other countries, and people transferring through U.S. airports to other destinations.

Airlines are responsible for confirming negative tests or proof of recovery for any passenger before they board a flight, or otherwise must deny them entry. According to Department of Transportation regulatory rules, China-based carriers are currently permitted to operate eight times weekly scheduled passenger flights to the U.S., though dozens more come from surrounding areas.

Now who is “fanning the flames” of “hate, fear and xenophobia” against Asian Americans, Joe? Your words, not mine!

“The pandemic has unleashed familiar forces of hate, fear and xenophobia that he always flames … that have always existed in this society,” Biden said in criticism of Trump’s policy.  “But this president brought it with him, has brought with it a new rash of racial messages, verbal and physical attacks and other acts of hate, some subtle, some overt, against the Asian American and Pacific Islanders.”

He added two months later, “We’ve had racists, and they’ve existed, they’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has.”

  1. There have been real racist Presidents before President Trump who is NOT a racist. Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, comes to mind. Someone tell the moron.

  2. Joey’s “gotta have a negative test if you’re coming in from China” is inadequate. We don’t know which derivative virus is blowing up in China, we don’t know the numbers in China (the CCP ain’t talkin’), but we know the average Chinese hasn’t been exposed to any Covid (that was the point of “zero covid”) and we know that the Chinese vaccines were marginal against omicron, probably irrelevant to the new strain.

    So I’d say, with China holding their cards close to their vests and us with the potential for a second round of Covid shutdowns and other malfeasance, I’d go full boat – nobody flying from China until we know a LOT MORE about their circumstances.

    Xenophobia this! We know, whether Covid came out of the “BSL-4” lab HA HA HA HA HA oh excuse me – or not – China’s response to learning that it had Covid in country was disreputable, dangerous to world health and irresponsible. There’s no way we should risk a second bout with this thing AT ALL.

  3. this man is a bed sheet in the wind He does not know where to flop, he just goes with the wind.
    Pitiful ! I feel sorry for this guy, a ship with no rudder.
