Last Thursday (September 10th), when Joe Biden’s National Press Secretary, TJ Ducko, sat down on Fox News for an interview with Bret Baier, it didn’t go well. As Allahpundit wrote that same day, Ducklo came off as a stuttering, angry boxer who was continually caught on the ropes. But there was one part of that interview that’s drawing renewed attention as Biden’s campaign attempts to ramp up their attacks on President Trump’s handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Bair brought up Biden’s original opposition to Trump’s decision to impose a travel ban on China to hinder the spread of the virus. The prompted Ducklo to go into full denial mode, claiming that his boss’s support of (or at least failure to oppose) the travel ban had been “fact-checked to death.” But it turns out that whoever was doing the fact-checking for them was asleep at the switch.

Joe Biden’s national press secretary claimed Thursday that the former vice president was in favor of President Donald Trump’s decision to restrict travel from China, but all of Biden’s public comments, including from the day the decision was announced, indicate otherwise.
“Joe Biden has been clear that he was not against that travel ban at the time,” TJ Ducklo told Fox News anchor Bret Baier. Ducklo’s claim contrasts with Biden’s previous statements on the travel restrictions, including some made on the very day the policy was announced. Less than an hour after Health and Human Services secretary Alex Azar declared the coronavirus a public health emergency and announced the China travel ban, Biden took the stage at a campaign event in Iowa and went after Trump’s “hysterical xenophobia.”
