European Union leaders on Thursday blasted President Donald Trump’s sweeping decision to impose sweeping travel restrictions on the continent over the fast spreading coronavirus.

In a joint statement the leaders said President Trump’s decision in a White House speech on Wednesday night to restrict travel from Europe to the United States in response to the coronavirus pandemic was “taken unilaterally and without consultation.”

 “The coronavirus is a global crisis, not limited to any continent, and it requires cooperation rather than unilateral action,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel wrote.
