Speaking to Stuart Varney on Friday, Mr Trump said: “Look, I wanted to”. [Biden] To be successful on the whole thing on covid, or as i call it china virus.


“I wanted him to succeed. He has completely failed. It is a disaster that has happened. I think he has done a terrible job on the corona virus.”

Mr Trump’s remarks came as countries around the world scrambled to react to the new version of the virus, which the World Health Organization has named Omicron.

The version has prompted President Biden to issue a travel ban. A White House statement indicated that travel to and from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi would be temporarily halted.

“As a precautionary measure until we have more information, I am ordering additional air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries. These new restrictions will be effective from November 29. As we move forward, we will continue to be guided by the advice of science and my medical team,” the president said in a prepared statement issued minutes after the ban was announced.

Like Mr Biden, Mr Trump also issued travel restrictions related to the coronavirus during his tenure. However, it appears Mr Biden did not follow the Republican’s lead on recommending dangerous treatments such as injecting disinfectant.

During the interview, Mr Trump also discussed the development of COVID-19 vaccines, praising his own administration’s efforts in development. “Fauci said it’s going to take over five years and who knows if it’s going to work and it works really well. And even the people who get it don’t end up in the hospital.” go and they don’t die,” he said.
