Controversial Fox News reporter Chris Wallace seemed to back President Trump recently when he pressed Biden advisor Jake Sullivan on whether he agreed that Trump’s travel ban to China saved “thousands of lives.”
This came after Wallace showed a clip of Biden calling it xenophobic.
According to The Daily Caller:
“Biden denies that he was talking that day about the travel restrictions that the president had just imposed,” Wallace said. “Are we to believe it was just a coincidence, that he was talking about xenophobia the day that the president announced travel restrictions on China?”
“And would you agree that the president moving so much faster, January 31st, to impose travel restrictions when Biden didn’t formally come out in support of the travel restrictions on China until April 3rd, that Trump’s actions saved thousands of lives?” he asked.…“I’m asking you a specific question,” Wallace pressed. “I’m asking you a specific question. Why did it take Biden two months to approve the travel restrictions?”
“Well, first, it didn’t take him two months,” said Sullivan. “In a speech on March 12th Joe Biden said the travel restrictions can slow the virus, but they can’t stop the virus. His whole point was the only way long-term for us to get this virus under control is for the president to stand up and do his job here at home where the virus was circulating.”
