January 31st was not early. There were already cases in the US, but OK I'll go with it.

How many flights did Trump cancel from China? None.

What restrictions were put on Americans traveling to and from China? None.

What restrictions were put on Chinese trade that allowed foreign nationals to travel to the US? None.

If this was so successful, why are there thousands of deaths now?

Yeah, this travel "ban" is as fake as his big beautiful Mexican paid border wall. In other words, a big fat fucking failure.

Now we're getting "help" from Russia?
At what price, since they've been dedicated to the destruction of this Country since 1917, with the small exception of four years (1941-1945) when they needed us to save their asses from Germany.

Russia defeated Germany.

During the Russian Revolution we invaded their country & tried with the "Whites" to restore the Tsar.

In our history books, it's called the Polar Bear War.

We always give people reason to hate us.

If we had a Dem in the white house, we would still be accepting travel from China.

Can't be racist.

If we had a Dem in the White House, there would have been a comprehensive plan months ago. It would not have been called a hoax and ignored. There would have been fewer cases and deaths.
