    Stay away until you get your disease under control. I like your dollars but not enough to die for.

    It’s hard enough to fly within the US. But that’s an option.

    I’ll stay in America happily until we get back on our feet. I love my country and I won’t run out on it even if I could. Do you run out on family and friends when things get tough? Just because things aren’t as they were when we were having a better run we don’t run out on our country if we are truly Americans In good times and bad I am an American 🇺🇸 IN GOD WE TRUST 🙏

    • John Smith Reply

      I agree with you Christine. That’s exactly why only 35% of all Americans have passports. We don’t run. Float or sink, but we don’t run

    • Brenda Heeligan Reply

      John Smith Maybe if you travelled more you would understand the world more. Might broaden the mind and educate people. It might make people less insular and understanding of people of another race. Just saying. I’m from the U.K. my two sisters are American citizens, all my family have travelled the globe, my daughter has travelled to every continent except Antarctica. Sad that we can’t travel at the moment, it’s just too dangerous.

    • Christine Jones Reply

      Brenda Heeligan I’m sure John would travel if the times were right. 🙏also perhaps some Americans would travel when things were better if they could afford it. It’s costly in the best of times.

    So…. how bout just not worry about travel during a f&÷€$& global pandemic.

    Stay the F home!


    I think the borders will open. Just wait till things get better. God loves America. ❤❤

  22. Internet Omatic Reply

    kinda scared the borders will be even worse after all this. they’re gonna limit our freedom of movement long-term I bet, just as the US was attempting to do a few years ago.

  23. Nathan S Reply

    Astonishing that at least 40% of Americans still stand behind traitor Trump. He has made the US an international pariah and presided over tens of thousands of avoidable deaths. It’s as if they want the US to collapse.

  24. intuitknit Reply

    Foreign is spelled this way. Not Foriegn.

  25. Lillian kline Reply

    Just don’t travel it’s that easy. Just deal with it. It’s a fricken pandemic.

    • MrHairyBudsツ Reply

      True but some people reckon the pandemic will work around THEIR plans 😑

    • Jelly Belly Reply

      Wait! AMERICANS are restricted! Good for them to flip the U.S. off. 😉😊

    We can trust the deep state media, lol, just kidding.

  42. Vlad Reply

    Except that we in USA need an investigation on our so called cases. 1/3 of them aren’t even true. Just because hospitals get government funding if they have corona virus patients, most of the patients are quickly labeled positive. A motorcycle accident, died in hospital, labeled coronavirus. Grandma came in for minor issue, promised won’t get a bill if allowed to label coronavirus. Two ladies stood in line to get tested, gave up waiting and left, week later received a paper saying they are positive. 1/3 cases aren’t true, hospitals just want the free government funding.

    • Stephen Ferree Reply

      Vlad You are repeating a false conspiracy theory that started on Facebook some time ago.

    • Vlad Reply

      @Stephen Ferree actually more like from the people that actually had this happen to them. Live truths.

    • Stephen Ferree Reply

      Vlad So if 1/3 of the cases aren’t actually Covid-19, then the mortality rate is actually much higher than reported.

  59. old Timer Reply

    the travel restrictions will be kept on until well after the Nov election if Trump is defeated. Then the UN’s Great Reset will proceed, being a co-ordinated currency reset, followed by transition to UN directed global socialism and more renewable energy. It is Imperative that Trump is re elected to stop this madness.

    • Stephen Ferree Reply

      old Timer He found a direct communication channel to his base.
      He relentlessly attacks mainstream media.
      He makes closing borders a centerpiece.
      He embraces nationalism.
      He embraces mass detention and deportation.
      He rejects international norms.
      He glorifies the military and demands loyalty.
      He orchestrates mass rallies to show status.
      He demonizes opponents.
      He attacks domestic democratic process.
      He uses borders to protect selected industries.
      He attacks judiciary and rule of law.
      He was not elected by a majority.
      He blames others and divides on racial lines.
      He unnecessarily attacks objective truth.
      He attacks the truth, including science.
      He lies, blurring reality, and his supporters spread those lies.
      He cements his rule by enriching elites.
      He relegates women to subordinate roles.
      He proclaims unchecked power.

      You can replace the words “He” with
      either Donald Trump or Adolf Hitler
      and both ways every one is true.

    Alot of other countries are banning international travel, but since Americans are the only ones who have money to travel we’re just calling it a ban on the U.S.A.

  62. Earl Van Fleet Reply

    My wife who is Thai just told me and showed me that the “World Health Organization” just asked Thailand how to achieve what they have with the coronavirus issues. I would like to applaud them. America has lost 454 people per million. Thailand has lost .8 per million. or America has lost 158,000 as of now and Thailand has lost 58. Who is taking care of who?

    IF YOU ARE WONDERING, See how we are doing compared to the rest of the world, it’s sickening if you are from the U.S. The
    rest of the world is serious!

      The worst part is that citizens of the US still believe they live in the country with the best of everything.

    The stupidity and incompetence of trumpy and his sycophants is limitless.
    Just a klan of loud mouthed, sociopath racists greedily chasing money and power.
    They do not care about the country or other people.

    Americans are totally banned from entering Australia. Also permission is required for Australians to travel overseas to any destination now.

    Over 150K Americans have died from COVID-19. Thanks to tRump and his corrupt comrades the economy is tanked and unemployment rate is at 11%

  67. Fred Midtgaard Reply

    Please Americans: Stop coming to my beloved Tanzania. Yes, it is possible to go there but is it ethical to possibly infect a country with no registered cases in 3 months – and with a poor health system? I’m concerned about great-grandma and great-grandpa and my kids. Wait until it is safe for us to have you visiting! The lions and elephants don’t have mobile phones and last time I checked they don’t take appointments anyway! Even if it is possible to travel to Tanzania does not mean that it is right of you to infect our country.

    It’s such an embarrassment, we’re not allowed to travel to other countries because we have a stupid president like trump..

  74. Suzanne Santos Reply

    Americans cannot come to my state in Australia. Other Australians cannot fly to my state unless they are essential workers who have government approval AND they go into mandatory lockdown for 14 days and test negative for COVID. My state is back to normal with zero cases and zero deaths over the last 65+ days. We have adapted to a more insular economy as a result. Tourism and #Staycations within our state, plus Federal and state economic assistance is also floating our economy. If you continue to travel around the US you WILL NEVER get COVID under control. Period. Be safe. Stay home. Help your neighbors. Share food and wealth. Peace.

    • Suzanne Santos Reply

      My ‘rights’ feel just fine And I support my government in their pandemic response. Next election cycle I’m still voting them out because they aren’t good on immigration policies. In the meantime I am staying home and alive.
