(FOX NEWS) – The Biden administration’s consideration of a travel ban due to the coronavirus pandemic is “hypocritical,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said on Thursday.
“The day after Donald Trump issued a travel ban on China, Joe Biden said this is no time for xenophobia and that sort of thing,” Rubio told “Fox & Friends.”
Rubio added: “And then a month later, he actually tweeted out that banning travel from anywhere did not work.”
Rubio reacted to the Miami Herald’s headline “White House looks at domestic travel restrictions as COVID mutation surges in Florida.”
“The Biden administration is considering whether to impose domestic travel restrictions, including on Florida, fearful that coronavirus mutations are threatening to reverse hard-fought progress on the pandemic,” the Herald reported.
Also, Rubio ripped the Biden administration for considering restricting travel between states within the country.
“So now that they’re considering actual restrictions on Americans inside the country, I think it is unconstitutional,” Rubio said. “I think it’s going to be challenged in court successfully.”
