Asian American Trump Supporters Celebrate at AAPI Ball

posted by Randall

Several hundred supporters of President Donald Trump attended the APA Presidential Inaugural Gala at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. Friday night.

The gala was sponsored by the Trump-Pence Asian Pacific American Advisory Committee (APAAC) and the National Committee of Asian American Republicans (Asian.GOP).

Several diplomats from Asian countries attended the ball including those from India, Korean, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

There was no indication President Trump attended.

“We were able to create a platform for the AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islanders) community to come together and celebrate the Trump election,” said Virginia Republican Puneet Ahluwalia to American Bazaar. “The gala also made a strong statement that we are very much part of the American mainstream and will play an effective role in the next administration.”
