Now, some of Trump’s Chinese-American supporters doubt their position. More were silent and cautious. Long Liu, a lawyer whose firm serves clients in a Chinese community, told the Orange County Register:
“Before the election … there were newspaper articles saying that he would be good for China. There were groups of Chinese people for Trump who bought billboards. It had an impact. There were a lot of Chinese people who ended up voting for Trump.”
“After the phone call, it was like all of those people, all of those articles, magically disappeared. No one talks about him anymore,” Liu said.
