Travel restrictions to the EU has played an important role in saving American lives amid the spread of coronavirus, the White House said.
US President Donald Trump does not intend to lift the ban on passenger traffic with European Union countries. This was announced by White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany during a briefing on Friday, June 19.
вЂњThe president knows that travel restrictions were a very important part of saving lives. Nearly three million could die, and these travel restrictions played an important role in taking action early and saving American lives, McEnany said.
She also emphasized that Trump is вЂњconstantly monitoring the data, and now there are no plans to lift restrictions.вЂќ
Recall, March 12, Trump banned entry into the United States from all European countries except the UK.
The EU criticized such a White House decision, noting that the crisis caused by the coronavirus requires cooperation, not unilateral action.
