This is a mischaracterization of provable fact- here are links to prove it

Whatever is going on in your echo chamber has not a damned thing to do with the facts. A simple search by you would have revealed the same.

Raise your game. You all kick my ass when I get my facts wrong - why can’t you live by the same standard?

Here’s a simple Google search for you to use:

Trump China Travel Ban Pelosi

Cut and paste it - go ahead - I guess you need the help. Here is what you will find:


Text from linked article:

President Donald Trump instituted travel restrictions on five Muslim majority countries during his first year in office. This year, on Jan. 31, he added more countries to the list.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has opposed that policy from the start, took to Twitter to criticize the expansion, calling it an “un-American travel ban.”

Now, two months later, a video that’s been viewed more than 2 million times on Facebook and YouTube falsely claims that her tweet was about Trump’s decision on the same day to restrict travelers coming from China in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

These are two distinct and unrelated actions that were each taken on Jan. 31. Pelosi’s tweet wasn’t about the restrictions imposed because of the coronavirus.

Here’s another link:


Text from Pelosi’s own linked statement:

“The Trump Administration’s expansion of its outrageous, un-American travel ban threatens our security, our values and the rule of law. The sweeping rule, barring more than 350 million individuals from predominantly African nations from traveling to the United States, is discrimination disguised as policy.

Here’s another link:


Here is a quote from the linked Article:

TRUMP: “We would’ve had thousands of people additionally die if we let people come in from heavily infected China. But we stopped it. We did a travel ban in January. By closing up, we saved millions, potentially millions of lives.” — Rose Garden remarks Tuesday.

AP Fact-check: He didn’t ban travel from China. He restricted it. Dozens of countries took similar steps to control travel from hot spots before or around the same time the U.S. did.

The U.S. restrictions that took effect Feb. 2 continued to allow travel to the U.S. from China’s Hong Kong and Macao territories over the past five months. The Associated Press reported that more than 8,000 Chinese and foreign nationals based in those territories entered the U.S. in the first three months after the travel restrictions were imposed.

Additionally, more than 27,000 Americans returned from mainland China in the first month after the restrictions took effect. U.S. officials lost track of more than 1,600 of them who were supposed to be monitored for virus exposure.

Few doubt that the heavy death toll from COVID-19 would be even heavier if world travel had not been constricted globally. But Trump has no scientific basis to claim that his action alone saved “millions” or even “hundreds of thousands” of lives, as he has put it.

And here’s a link to the one Question Pelosi did raise about the European travel ban. Why the hell did Trump leave the back Dior open by excluding the UK from the ban? The answer is obvious - Trump despised the EU - he decided to reward the UK of keaving the EU - Trump played politics and out this country at great risk.

Here’s the link:


And the quote from the link:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday that Vice President Mike Pence and Dr. Anthony Fauci called her the night earlier to brief her on the travel ban that was announced by President Donald Trump in his Oval Office address.

Pelosi said that Fauci said it was a "scientific medical decision."

"It’s just strange because they’re saying it’s easy to travel among these countries but they’re separate from the U.K. Well you can just get on the Chunnel and you’ll be in the U.K.," she said.
