The president’s re-election campaign debuts its “Asian Americans for Trump” initiative in a virtual event tonight, courting a slice of the nation’s electorate that has experienced a surge in racism and harassment since the pandemic began.
The big question: How receptive will Asian American voters be in this moment?
Details: Lara Trump, a senior campaign adviser and the president’s daughter-in-law, will host the virtual rollout on Team Trump Online, the campaign tells Axios.
The other side: Joe Biden’s campaign is also reaching out to Asian Americans during the pandemic.
“The American story as we know it would not exist without the strength of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community,” Biden and Duckworth wrote.
