As the most inclusive and diverse nation in the world, America has welcomed millions of Asian immigrants. While Hillary promises to champion Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities through permanent amnesty and entitlements,
Trump will champion and empower AAPI communities through economic revitalization and growth.
Economic opportunity is the #1 driver for Asian immigration.
Millions have left everything and endured many hardships for the American dream of opportunity and freedom. Only Trump can restore and preserve this dream.
Globally, China’s unfair trade practices and currency manipulation have cost millions of American jobs and closed thousands of American factories. Indeed, under Obama, our trade deficit with China has increased by about $100 billion. While the Obama administration has rolled out the red carpet to the Chinese government, Trump aims to put an “end to China’s illegal export subsidies and lax labour and environmental standards“. After years of selling out American interests, Trump’s message, “Make America Great Again” has resonated with millions of voters. He proposes to reduce dependence on foreign production imports from countries like China, South Korea, Japan, and Mexico. China has greatly prospered over the last few decades by focusing on low-cost exports to the United States, at the expense of American manufacturing. Mutually beneficial and fair trade policies will undoubtedly result in economic growth and more jobs for America.
Mr. Trump does not oppose immigration, but illegal immigration. In fact, he would like to level the playing field, by rewarding only those who follow the rules. It is unfair that people enter the country unlawfully when there are more than 4.4 million people on the legal immigrant visa waiting list. While a fair and properly enforced immigration policy has the potential to grow the economy, mass levels of illegal immigration negatively impact our economic standing in the world. This is one of the reasons for a struggling and disappearing middle class.
Mr. Trump, along with the GOP, will champion the AAPI community by protecting core values that have contributed to America’s greatness. He will defend traditional marriage, family, religious freedom, and conservative principles. He has rejected politically correct ideas, and instead promises to uphold the constitutional principles that made America the most free, most prosperous, and most virtuous nation in the history of the world.
Asian Americans have made significant contributions throughout America’s history. Mr. Trump’s vision for America ensures that they continue to do so. He will be a proud leader, championing freedom, smaller government, and human dignity. A President Donald J. Trump will “Make America the Greatest ever.”
