EU disapproves of US travel ban

The European Union on Thursday took offense to the US decision to impose a unilateral travel ban on European countries. In a statement, the European Commission and Council said, ’The European Union disapproves of the fact that the US decision to impose a travel ban was taken unilaterally and without consultation’, adding that steps are being taken to limit the spread of the virus.

The EU also just scolded Greece for trying to defend its sovereignty so...yeah I don't think what the EU thinks is really important.

Europe has over 17000 people infected. We've got a few hundred. The reason we're (currently) in better shape is because we cut off travel to China quickly. And now it's time to shut out Europe for a few weeks. This is the correct move, if the goal is to slow the infection rate here.

We already saw in Italy that open borders are worth more to them than human life. I hope Italy has a human rights tribunal and some Eurocrats face the consequences of what they’ve done when this is all over.

I like how they used the word “unilateral” .... as if we need their god damned permission. Hey EU, you know America is not and has never been part of the European Union right?

As much as I don't like Trump I can't disagree with him on this one, Italy alone has the death toll of the coronavirus up to 30% and they have resorted to closing down businesses and nationally restricted citizens movements and activities until April 3rd, so I can't blame him for being cautious https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2020/03/12/italy-shops-bars-and-restaurants-ordered-to-close.html

How about you retaliate and also ban your ppl from traveling to the US? You don't even have to consult us. Just do it.

Too bad it doesn't fall under the EU's prerogative to decide what the US is allowed to do. If the US doesn't want us to go there, we shut up and don't go there.
