He’s not messing around.
According to Breitbart News, Representative Ted Lieu attacked former President Donald Trump stating that he gave “permission to attack” Asian-Americans.
Lieu said, “I was at the House Judiciary Subcommittee hearing on violence against Asian-Americans, and we had professors present studies and reports that showed there was a link between the racist rhetoric of the former president and the increase in hate crimes and hate incidents against Asian-Americans.”
He added, “When the former president uses terms like Kung flu, racist terms in describing this virus, it gives people more permission to attack Americans who happen to be of Asian descent. I am not a virus, and there is really no evidence whatsoever that Asian-Americans somehow transmit this virus more than anybody else. In fact, you’ll more likely get the virus if you don’t get vaccinated, in you don’t wear a mask and if you don’t social distance.” You can watch a clip of Lieu’s remarks here.
