African Journalist: ‘Biden’s Omicron African Travel Ban is Built on a Lie’

On November 26th, the Biden Administration banned travel from 8 African countries – supposedly because of a new ‘Omicron variant’ of the coronavirus. The White House states:

Based on these developments, and in light of the extensive cross-border transit and proximity in Southern Africa, the detection of B.1.1.529 cases in some Southern African countries, and the lack of widespread genomic sequencing in Southern Africa, the United States Government, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), within the Department of Health and Human Services, has reexamined its policies on international travel and concluded that further measures are required to protect the public health from travelers entering the United States from the Republic of Botswana, the Kingdom of Eswatini, the Kingdom of Lesotho, the Republic of Malawi, the Republic of Mozambique, the Republic of Namibia, the Republic of South Africa, and the Republic of Zimbabwe.  In addition to these travel restrictions, the CDC shall implement other mitigation measures for travelers departing from the countries listed above and destined for the United States, as needed.

Members of the African media are now openly challenging the White House, leaving press secretary Jen Psaki in retreat over her Administration’s dubious Omicron claims. They are saying this latest US travel ban ‘is built on a lie,’ as there is no evidence of any significant or dangerous ‘Omicron’ outbreak in any of the accused African countries.

Jesse Watters speaks with Today News Africa White House correspondent Simon Ateba who challenged an evasive Psaki over the baseless African travel ban, and branded Biden’s policy as “racist” against Africans. Watch:
