Trump calls for protection of Asian-Americans after coronavirus uproar

After repeatedly referring to the Covid-19 as a ’Chinese virus’, US President Trump on Monday tweeted his support for the Asian Americans and said they were not responsible for spreading the disease and needed to be protected. Trump spoke out amid rising reports of verbal and physical attacks on the community amid the pandemic.

I am sure this won't get covered by the left and if they do they will probably call him racist for saying Asian Americans.

Doesn't matter how you sugar-coat it, It's still China's fault.

Yeah, asian Americans are not Directly part of the Chinese government, most of them are people trying to get along. The China Trump reffers to is the Government establishment. For example there is the doctor who tried to warn people, and there is the corrupt official who stopped him, China suffers from a horrific amount of Orwellian authoritarianism and its bled into the cultures very bones.

It's so obvious that he didn't mean all Chinese are responsible. It's insane that it even needs to be clarified. I suppose it is 2020...

He needs to just call it the Chinese Communist Party Virus or CCP-Virus. They dropped the ball and let this get as bad as it is.

It's not really any one person's fault, but people's idiocy never ceases to amaze me. Same thing after 9/11. A couple of Sikhs got beat up because people think Saudis wear turbans. because people who've been in this country for years are clearly the ones bringing s*** in. I don't get it

There are many types of Asians in the world. We are not all Chinese. Stop grouping all of us with China as though we are victimized when China is insulted. We don't give a shit when Trump shits on China. China is a communist shithole. Their disgusting virus is responsible for the deaths of thousands across the world. Get that through your thick skulls, libtards.

As he should have in the beginning! He has said far too many racist comments and always doubles down. I am glad that his people MADE HIM ADDRESS IT. I give them the credit. Not him. Sorry.

What what has actually been happening. Is there stuff happening to Chinese Americans, I mean beyond the stuff that happens on any given day. There are over 300 million Americans, I'm sure there is dumb behavior going on somewhere, if you care to look.

Unfortunately, this is a thing we have a tendency to do (not just the US but we have no control over any other nation). "Asian-Americans" have nothing to do with this, not do Japanese, Koreans, Eastern Russians, Indians and whoever else falls under that banner. It's the Chinese government. That's the concern.

Does this mean it is now racist to use the terms German Measles or Spanish Flu. The Dems are getting more and more insane as each day passes. This virus originated in China. Calling it a Chinese virus is is simply describing it's origins. The leftist press are pathetic.

Trump needs to tape his mouth, every time he speaks "negative" stereotypes about: Jews, Blacks, Mexicans, Asians, etc. he causes his low-self-esteemed, uneducated, ignorant, xenophobic, racist followers to act out! Trump is like an evil pied piper let loose on the world!

Caring about Asian-American people and calling the virus Chinese (whitch it is) are not contradictory positions to hold, despite what the headlines imply.
