Chinese American Trump Supporters Having their Doubts

posted by Randall

President Donald TrumpChinese language media which had been filled with pro-Trump stories have suddenly gone silent and some of the President-elect’s biggest Chinese American supporters are expressing doubts.
 
The sudden shift came after a call between Trump and the Taiwanese government. That call sent shock waves in the international community and broke U.S. protocol which had followed a one-China policy.
 
“Before the election … there were newspaper articles saying that he would be good for China. There were groups of Chinese people for Trump who bought billboards,” said Long Liu, a San Gabriel lawyer, told the OC Register. “It had an impact,” Liu added. “There were a lot of Chinese people who ended up voting for Trump.”
 
Even the founder of Chinese Americans for Trump is beginning to waver.
 
“We try to block the bad stuff Trump says about China,” said David Wang.
 
“Everyone is trying to figure out what’s going on and what (the Trump administration) stands for,” said Yulan Chung of the South Coast Chinese Cultural Association and Irvine Chinese School in Orange County.

    RE: Chinese American Trump supporters having their doubts: So they’re more loyal to mainlander sentiments and CCP doctrine than what’s good for America? Treasonous.

    RE: Chinese American Trump supporters having their doubts: Shocked they spoke to any media as they're exclusively using WeChat in Mandarin.
