Watch: Press Secretary Asked Why Biden’s Travel Bans Aren’t ‘Xenophobic’

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked Monday by Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy why travel bans extended and expanded under a President Joe Biden are not considered “xenophobic.” “When President Trump was imposing travel restrictions in March, specifically on China, then-candidate Biden called it ‘xenophobic’ and ‘fearmongering,’” Doocey told Psaki. “So now-President Biden is putting travel restrictions on people coming in from other countries.” “What word do we use to describe that?” The press secretary took issue with the reporter’s question, asserting that the framing was inaccurate. “Well, I don’t think that’s quite a fair articulation,” Psaki responded. “The President has been clear that he felt the Muslim ban was xenophobic. He overturned the Muslim ban.”
