Trump Uses Kung Flu Phrase With Young Republicans6/23/2020
Everyone, including Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway, agrees the term Kung Flu is racist. There is one exception-
To add insult to injury, Trump's press secretary defended the use of Kung Flu:
“It's a fair thing to point out as China tries to ridiculously rewrite history, to ridiculously blame the coronavirus on American soldiers,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters during a news briefing, rejecting reporters’ characterization of the remark as racist. “President Trump is trying to say, 'no, China, I will label this virus for its place of origin.'” Politico
In keeping with his Press Secretary's defense of the use of Kung Flu, Trump repeatedly used Kung Flu in a speech to young republicans at a rally at a Phoenix mega church...
So, what about Chinese Americans? What about Americans with Chinese heritage? Isn't Trump's racist and inappropriate use of Kung Flu degrading to these Americans?
“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
