Here’s what Democrats are saying now…
Recently on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) accused former President Trump of being responsible for the string of violent attacks against Asian-Americans.
According to Breitbart, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked, “You were the first Asian-American woman elected to the Senate, a striking surge in anti-Asian hate crimes here in America. Why is this happening, and what should be done about it?”
Hirono responded, “It’s happening because we didn’t have leadership at the top, starting from President Trump calling it the China virus and the Kung flu and all of that, which apparently it unleashed this kind of targeted hate crimes among Asian-Americans, and the increase is dramatic. Just last week in New York, a person who was just walking down the street got knifed. He is in serious condition. Soon thereafter, four people walking in New York were knifed. One died. In California, you have incidents of 90-year-old people being knocked down, attacked. That person died.”
