I seem to remember something like this in 2019 being called racist. I wonder what has changed.

But democrats are considering it now so it's not racist.

I'm quite perplexed by this comment. Are you naively asking why this is different today? Or are you cheekily drawing attention to how everything is actually very different now? I can easily read it both ways.

Please explain how biden considering a travel ban on Chinese citizens is different than trump doing the same in 2019

Wow, you are you people who don't understand how this is different? If you need it explained, you have a lot of recent history to catch up on. That's not a reddit comment.

What? Trump wanted to do this and it was racist. Biden wants to do it and it's acceptable. What's the difference?


HildemarTendler t1_j24r5at wrote

Do you really think the only difference is that it was Trump then and its Biden now? I do not believe you are here in good faith.

You think trump wanted to do it because racism but biden does the same thing and it's for the betterment of society? You are smoking crack

(Fyi I hate trump but the hypocrisy is astounding)

You're making baseless accusations and are wildly uniformed about the state of the world. Do you understand the current proposal is due to China's huge swing in covid cases? That's nothing like what Trump was doing.

But again, you're likely more aware of this since you have strong opinions and you're just arguing in bad faith.

Are you trying to say China didn't have massive covid numbers when trump wanted the ban?


HildemarTendler t1_j25s76o wrote

Covid happened in early 2020. Trump's travel ban was in 2019 when he was instigating a trade war, not related to covid.


jackthedipper18 t1_j268r7i wrote

Hahah you have your facts wrong. Travel ban was 1/31/20 and covid became a known public issue at the end of 2019

It's absolutely amazing how you've twisted things to pretend you're right.

What have I said that's incorrect? You have yet to counter a single claim I have made except to say you think I'm here in bad faith. That's a lame excuse that people use when they have no rebuttal
