Asian Americans are VERY angry at what China has done to our Country, and the World. Chinese Americans are the most angry of all. I don’t blame them!

Trump’s unchecked racist and xenophobic rhetoric against Asian Americans and Asian immigrants directly puts their lives at risk. It’s dangerous. There is no excuse for this.

@PressSec  says President Trump using the term kung-flu is a "indictment" on China and not about blaming Asian Americans for the virus. Note: Many Americans, including Asian Americans who have faced increased attacks during the pandemic, find the term racist and offensive.

In March, @KellyannePolls  said that "kung flu" was "highly offensive" and mentioned her husband and kids, who have Asian heritage, because obviously it's especially offensive to Asian-Americans. President Trump just used the term for a third time. To raucous applause.

An Asian American father and his 2-year-old and 6-year-old were stabbed because the perpetrator thought they were Chinese and had coronavirus. Donald Trump has put the lives of Asian Americans and Asian immigrants at risk.

“The other day, I got stopped in the subway and one of the passengers started screaming racial slurs at me. I was dressed in scrubs....” Scrubs or no scrubs, this is not okay. We must speak out against attacks on Asian Americans and Asian immigrants.

No, Mr. McCarthy, nationality has no bearing on your likelihood of contracting or spreading the coronavirus. Misinformation like that leads to discrimination against Asian-Americans. That kind of destructive xenophobia has no place in our society, or our public health response.
