CNBC + Trump "Risks" Alienating Asian Americans

Thursday, August 04, 2016

As always good to see articles about how Trump alienates Asian Americans - and how people are seeing us as a rising voting force in U.S. politics.

At the same time I just have to ask the question of the title of the CNBC article relating to the word "risks" - risks?

I think it's done.

Asian-American Democratic officials see advantages to those trends in 2016, especially with Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee. His jabs at immigrants and pledge to discard the Affordable Care Act clash with the priorities of Asian-American voters as they become a larger part of the electorate, lawmakers said at the Democratic National Convention.

"We see a trend with Republicans where they've become more and more extreme and where there's increasingly xenophobic kind of rhetoric, and certainly that's exemplified in Trump," Rep. Judy Chu of California, chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, told CNBC.
