CNN Lies in Fact Check About Biden Calling Trump’s China Ban ‘Xenophobic’

CNNLOL isn’t even trying to tell the truth anymore and is obviously using its “Facts First” fact checks as a means to deliberately misinform and troll.

During Tuesday night’s debate, President Trump reminded the public that even before the coronavirus had taken a single American life, he stopped all incoming travel from China, which was where the virus originated and where there were massive spread and death at the time.

Trump said of his China travel ban, “I closed it, and you said, ‘He’s xenophobic. He’s a racist, and he’s xenophobic’ because you didn’t think I should have closed our country.”

CNNLOL ruled that claim as dubious for the following reason (sorry, I don’t link fake news): “It’s not clear Biden even knew about Trump’s China travel restrictions when he called Trump xenophobic on the day the restrictions were unveiled; Biden has never explicitly linked his accusation of xenophobia to these travel restrictions.”
