With little over a month to go before the general elections, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced his Asian Pacific American Advisory Committee on Sept. 25. Hossein Khorram, of Washington, a Muslim and immigrant from Iran, was among the men and women elected to the committee.
Trump and Governor Mike Pence will meet with members of the committee and AAPI leaders to discuss growing concerns over educational opportunities, employment, and the economy. In a news release, the Trump campaign said Trump “understands the critical role Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders play in the growing and providing for an energetic economic base, which has been lacking over the past eight years of Obama/Clinton policies.”
Dr. Lisa Shin of New Mexico, head of Korean Americans for Trump said, “The Trump/Pence ticket will bring meaningful change to Washington. No longer will DC bureaucrats decide what’s best for Asian American and Pacific Islander families.
Supporting Mr. Trump and Governor Pence will allow AAPIs to truly have a voice in how we want to educate our families and raise our children.”
