Will Democrats criticize Biden as well?

In a recent interview with Fox News, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) spoke about President Biden’s recent decision to ban travel to and from eight African countries including South Africa due to fears of the new Omicron COVID-19 variant.

The travel ban officially went into effect of Monday.

According to Breitbart, Sen. Cotton slammed President Biden and accused him of taking an “incompetent half-measure” by delaying the start of his ban on travel to those specific countries. Cotton appears to have wanted the ban to go into place immediately.

Cotton then noted how most European nations did just that. Cotton then said, “If you don’t want to implement a travel ban because you think the virus is already here or that it’s counterproductive, then you shouldn’t do so, but this is yet another incompetent half-measure.”

Cotton then explained how he was urging former President Trump to place an immediate travel ban on China when the virus first emerged.
