FACT CHECK: CNN Claims That Biden Did NOT Call Trump's China Travel Ban "Xenophobic"


Throughout the presidential debate on Tuesday evening, former Vice President Joe Biden said many false and misleading statements that the left-wing fact-checkers are failing to call him out on. 

The left-wing media seems to be falling in line as they too are making many false and misleading statements in response to the debate as they try to cover for Biden's lies.

In response to the debate on Tuesday, CNN released a “fact check” where they claimed that President Trump's claim that Biden called his China travel restriction “xenophobic” was false because it was “lacking context.”

CNN claimed that it wasn't "clear" that Biden "even knew about Trump’s China travel restrictions" when he tweeted that President Trump was "xenophobic."

REALLY?? So Biden just ironically sent out a tweet calling President Trump "xenophobic" right after he banned travel from China to slow the spread of the Coronavirus?

“Defending his response to the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump referenced the travel restrictions his administration imposed on foreign nationals who had been in China, then attacked Biden for remarks he had made the same day,” CNN wrote. “Addressing his opponent, Trump said, ‘I closed it, and you said, ‘He’s xenophobic. He’s a racist and he’s xenophobic,’ because you didn’t think I should have closed our country.’”

Read below how CNN tries justifying their position:

It’s not clear Biden even knew about Trump’s China travel restrictions when he called Trump xenophobic on the day the restrictions were unveiled; Biden has never explicitly linked his accusation of xenophobia to these travel restrictions.

The campaign says Biden’s January 31 accusations – that Trump has a record of “hysterical xenophobia” and “fear mongering” – were not about the travel restrictions at all. The campaign says Biden did not know about the restrictions at the time of his speech, since his campaign event in Iowa started shortly after the Trump administration briefing where the restrictions were revealed by Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.

Given the timing of the Biden remarks, it’s not unreasonable for Trump to infer that the former vice president was talking about the travel restrictions. But Biden never took an explicit position on the restrictions until his April declaration of support.

There is no mention of this tweet on CNN’s fact check, or the link provided to a previous “fact check” of the claim. The tweet from Biden is still up for anyone to find.

Trump didn’t narrow his comments about Biden’s allegations to January 31, but CNN did, avoiding the fact that Biden directly responded to a Trump tweet about the restrictions by saying the president was “xenophobic.”
