President Joe Biden is being criticized for his efforts to force travel restrictions on travelers from China after once calling former President Donald Trump's similar plans xenophobic.
The latest moves have some calling Biden a hypocrite for duplicating Trump's past policy of requiring a COVID-19 test from Chinese travelers upon entry to the U.S.

"Stop the xenophobic fear-mongering. Be honest. Take responsibility. Do your job," Biden said in a tweet after Trump chose a similar policy in March 2020.
"Biden is a hypocrite," Michigan Republican Rep. Lisa McClain tweeted.
"He is restricting travel from China after previously calling Trump xenophobic for doing the same thing," she added.

The area is not the only one in which Biden has been labeled a hypocrite. A spokesman for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) recently referred to Biden as "hypocrite-in-chief" over condemning the state's migrant busing program after being caught flying migrants across the country at night.
"These migrants willingly chose to go to Washington, D.C., having signed a voluntary consent waiver available in multiple languages upon boarding that they agreed on the destination," Abbot spox Renae Eze told Fox News Digital in a statement.
"And they were processed and released by the federal government, who are dumping them at historic levels in Texas border towns like El Paso, which recently declared a state of emergency because of the Biden-made crisis," she added.
Biden continues to provide evidence of saying one thing yet doing another when it comes to his policies, ranging from COVID-19, the border and other concerns.
The latest policy also increases worries that the nation may return to some of the COVID-19 restrictions from the pandemic nearly three years after it began.
