Sen. Chris Murphy: Trump’s China Travel Ban ‘Just Didn’t Work’

‘We have had just an absolute abysmal failure of leadership from the White House since the very beginning’

EXCERPT:

MURPHY: "Well, I mean, we have had just an absolute abysmal failure of leadership from the White House since the very beginning. Effectively, after the travel ban, a travel ban that just didn’t work, 400,000 people got in from those countries that were subject to the restrictions, after that, the President just gave up. The President and his team effectively gave up. They run a task force, they have press conferences, but they have effectively left the response to the states and to hospital systems and to municipalities. And even when they do try to intervene, it frankly makes the situation often much worse than if they had done nothing.“
