Determination, Discontent Grow in Trump Asian-American, Pacific Islander Outreach Effort – NBC News

Chinese Americans for Trump founder David (Tian) Wang is as pumped for a Donald Trump presidency now as he was when he founded his group a week after the real estate mogul announced his candidacy last year.

He and hundreds of his volunteers have been knocking on doors in battleground states, handing out flyers to seniors at Chinese supermarkets, and sending airplanes into the skies of American cities with banners reading, “Chinese Americans for Trump,” Wang told NBC News.

“I have a direct line to them,” he said of the Trump campaign. “Whatever I need, in terms of materials or whatever, I give them a call, and they give me whatever I want, except money. We pay everything.”

 

While Wang spoke of having a pipeline to the Trump campaign, others expressed frustration trying to book Trump surrogates to speak at AAPI rallies in key battleground states, where the demographic could make a difference not only in the presidential race, but also in congressional contests.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to an NBC News request for comment.
