DONALD TRUMP ANGERS ASIANS AND ASIAN AMERICANS

China's Great Wall

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Donald Trump’s disparaging remarks about Mexicans continue to wreak havoc on his business relationships, first with Univision, then NBC Universal, and now Macy’s. All have severed their ties with the presidential candidate.

Now, he has also angered Asians and Asian Americans for proposing to build a “great wall” on the U.S. southern border to keep Mexicans out.

Asians took offense with the comment, saying that Trump practically disrespected one of the world’s greatest wonders — the Great Wall of China — and what it represents.

The Great Wall — or the majority of it — was built during China’s Ming Dynasty, considered one of the greatest eras of orderly government and social stability in human history. “In using a reference to the Great Wall in his misguided tirade against what he believed to be Mexican rapists, drug addicts and criminals, Trump has belittled  a world symbol of greatness, determination and resiliency,” a spokesperson for an Asian American coalition said.

So, not only has Trump lost the Latino vote, but also the Asian American vote. Ironically, a new poll shows Trump surging to second place behind former Florida Governor Jeb Bush in the crowded race for the Republication nomination for president.

Maybe, his message of keeping America free of non-white people is resonating with many conservative voters?

  1. So let me get this strait all the Asian american culture are offended that he wants to use a wall that historically provided “considered one of the greatest eras of orderly government and social stability in human history.” and that is a bad thing. It should be viewed as a compliment that he wants to use China’s history and success to America.I am lost on how he lost the support of Asians, as there are more then Chinese in that demographic. Korean, Filipino, Japanese, etc…
