Trump Stumbles After Being Asked What He’ll Do To Protect Asian-Americans From Discrimination: ‘I Don’t Know’
Donald Trump has constantly referred to the coronavirus as the “China virus,” which has lead to Asian-Americans being discriminated against.
On Thursday, Trump was asked what he plans to do to stop that discrimination.
“What are the concrete measures that you are taking to combat the hate crimes against Asians?” asked the reporter.
That’s when Trump stumbled.
“Well, I don’t know,” said Trump. “All I know is this: Asian-Americans in our country are doing fantastically well. I’m very close to them, as you know. And they’re doing fantastically well, and I think they appreciate the job we’re doing. But I did want to put that statement out, the social media statement, because, to me, Asian-Americans are a great part of our country.”
