Did Joe Biden actually call Trump xenophobic?

President Trump slammed Joe Biden for calling him “xenophobic” in the early days of the coronavirus outbreak during their debate on Thursday night.

But the two sparred over why Biden had lobbed the insult.

The president said Biden had called him xenophobic over the restrictions on travel from China that he had imposed.

“When I closed and banned China from coming in… months later he was saying I was xenophobic, that I did it too soon,” Trump said, “and now he’s saying I should have moved quicker.”

In response, Biden said: “He is xenophobic, but not because he shut down travel to China.”

Biden did in fact call the president “xenophobic” in a tweet on Feb. 1, but did not specifically reference the travel restrictions.

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering,” Biden tweeted.

“He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”
