Donald Trump has already offended women and Latinos with inflammatory language. Now he’s turning his outrageous remarks towards the Asian community by mocking their English language skills.
You’ve got to hand it to Donald Trump, 61. The billionaire with no filter has upset yet another group of people with crass, off the cuff remarks. This time he’s turned his ire at Asians by openly mocking the Chinese and Japanese command of the English language.
Donald Trump has now insulted the Asian community while at a campaign stop in Dubuque, Iowa on Aug. 25. The Republican presidential hopeful was doing some tough talk on business negotiations with the Far East, but he managed to mock their citizens command of English. “Negotiating with Japan, negotiating with China,” Donald began, “When these people walk in the room, they don’t say, ‘Oh, hello! How’s the weather? It’s so beautiful outside. Isn’t it lovely? How are the Yankees doing? Oh they’re doing wonderful. Great.” He continued on to remark “They say, ‘We want deal!'”
The same day Donald made headlines for kicking longtime Univision anchor Jorge Ramos out of a news conference after he interrupted the billionaire, peppering him with comments about immigration. “Excuse me. You weren’t called. Sit down,” The Donald replied. “You haven’t been called. Go back to Univision” he shouted at the journalist. Not nice Donald!
But none of his rhetoric has hurt him in the polls. If anything it’s done the exact opposite! In an OAN/Gravis Marketing poll released Aug. 25, he received 40 percent support among a National G.O.P candidate poll. His closest competitor Ben Carson lags behind in second place with only 13 percent.
Hollywoodlifers, do you think what Donald said was a racist slam against Asians?
