Trump’s Travel Bans Have Potentially Saved Thousands of Lives from the Wuhan Flu

On March 13, 2020, Conservative author and polemicist David Horowitz gave President Donald Trump his due.

In a tweet, Horowitz noted that had a Democrat been in office, the current Wuhan virus crisis could have costed thousands of American lives:

He asserted, “Bottom line for virus: If any Democrat were president, there would have been no ban on travel from China, and we’d be where Italy is – and worse. So the fact that Trump is in fact our president has saved tens of thousands of American lives.”

President Trump implemented a travel ban on China back in January.

Similarly, he implemented a travel ban on European countries with an exemption for the U.K. on March 11, 2020.

Democrats, on the other hand, have been virtue signaling about open borders and “alleged” racism.

Unlike his Democrat rivals, Trump understands that virtue signaling can prove deadly in these times of a global pandemic.

Instead, he has relied on his nationalist instincts to protect the American people and craft policies that go beyond fluffy rhetoric to please the cultural Left and wonky platitudes about boosting GDP.
