When President Biden and his administration decided to ban all travel from eight African countries, people were furious. Upset users on social media were accusing the Biden administration of racism for doing so and now Fauci appears to have thrown Biden under the bus.
Fauci recently came forward and admitted that he and others in President Biden’s administration felt ‘very badly’ about the ban especially since they decided not to ban travel from any other countries including parts of Europe which later on also had cases of the omicron variant.
What’s worse is that According to Fox, officials in South Africa, the U.N. and WHO felt that Biden’s decision to ban travel from only “one part of the world” was inappropriate and referred to the move as “travel apartheid.”
After being asked about the decision, Fauci stated, “That ban was done at a time when we were really in the dark – we had no idea about what was going on, except that there had been an explosion of cases of omicron in South Africa. So when the ban was put on, it was to give us time to figure out what was going on.”
Fauci then said, “Now that we have more and more information about cases in our own country and worldwide, we’re looking at that very carefully on a daily basis. Hopefully, we’ll be able to lift that ban in a quite reasonable period of time.”
Fauci later confessed that officials felt “very badly” about the “hardship” Biden’s decision put on the people of these African nations.
