President Trump said Saturday the administration was considering additional travel restrictions to deal with coronavirus.
Asked if he was considering closing the southern border due to coronavirus, Trump said “yes” and later said “very strongly.” Later, he seemed to indicate he was walking it back.
When confronted with the fact that Mexico has far fewer cases than the US, Trump seemed to contradict himself.
“We’re not talking about it,” Trump said. “We have to think all borders, we have to think about, as it pertain to what we’re talking about here, this is not a border that seems to be much of a problem right now. We hope we won’t have to do that.”
