Press Secretary Jen Psaki says travel restrictions will be part of a multi-faceted approach by the Biden administration to combat the coronavirus.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday it was unfair to claim that President Biden described his predecessor's coronavirus-related travel ban as "xenophobic," despite statements that indicated that was in fact his view of that policy.
"I don't think that's quite a fair articulation," she told Fox News' Peter Doocy who reiterated Biden's use of the term "xenophobic." Doocy's comment came just after the White House announced a coronavirus-related ban on travel from South Africa.
"The president has been clear that he felt the Muslim ban was xenophobic," Psaki said. "He overturned the Muslim ban. He also, though, has supported steps, travel restrictions in order to keep the American people safe, to ensure that we are getting the pandemic under control. That's been part of his policy, but he was critical of the former president for having a policy that was not more comprehensive than travel restrictions."
