Well, if CNN said so, it must be true…said no one who cares about the truth, ever.

Fact check: Trump claims Biden called him xenophobic for travel restrictions
From CNN’s Tara Subramaniam
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.
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.”
Fact Check – CNN Did Biden say Trump was xenophobic for imposing travel restrictions on China?
This is lacking context
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.
But, oh look, what have we here? Looks like a Biden tweet calling Trump ‘xenophobic’ for his China travel restrictions.
Stop the xenophobic fear-mongering. Be honest. Take responsibility. Do your job. https://t.co/nQ5aLVrpyb
