He has called for the protection of Americans of Asian descent after a controversy erupted over US President Donald Trump's "Chinese virus" remarks. "It is very important that we fully protect our Asian-American community in the United States and around the world," Trump wrote on Twitter on Monday. They said, "They are fantastic people and they have no fault in spreading the virus. They are working with us to get rid of it. Together we will win. "
Trump was accused of racism for calling the Corona virus a "Chinese virus", which he had expressed anger over last week, though on Monday his tone was softened. Asian American activists have reported increased incidents of discrimination since the global epidemic unfolded. These incidents also include the beating of a woman in the New York subway. The World Health Organization (WHO) does not accept the use of such terminology (Chinese virus). He says that it tarnishes a community and may confuse others that they cannot be infected.
