‘They Question My Ethnicity, My Patriotism’: Elaine Chao Slams Democrats for ‘Double Standard’ on Racism
Elaine Chao is accusing Democrats of a “double standard” on racism against Asian Americans, saying she has faced attacks on her Chinese heritage both in office and on the campaign trail.
On Democrats: Chao, who served as the former secretary of Transportation in the Trump administration, said Democrats accuse her of “divided loyalties” while claiming to be “purveyors of anti-discrimination.”
Elaine Chao, Secretary of Transportation under the Trump administration, announced her resignation on Thursday afternoon, citing the pro-Trump riots on the Capitol as the reason for her early leave.
The reason: In an email to her colleagues shared on her Twitter account, Chao announced that she would be stepping down from her position because of what occurred “specifically yesterday,” a source told Axios.
Despite the controversial content of his series of tweets from this past weekend, President Donald Trump apparently cannot be deemed racist simply due to the fact that Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is part of the Trump Cabinet.
This ridiculous yet unsurprising spin comes from Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff Marc Short, who in an interview with Fox News on Monday, defended Trump’s demand that four members of Congress “go back” to where they came from.
A video footage of United States Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao engaging in a confrontation with some protesters is making the rounds on social media.
Chao can be seen in the viral clip angrily facing a group questioning her and her husband, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, over their stand on U.S. immigration policies.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is channeling her inner Elsa this week, telling victims of sexual harassment that, when it comes to workplace misconduct, they should simply “let it go”.
Chao shared her opinions at the Politico’s Women Rule Summit on Tuesday, stating that she had also been a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace.
Just a week after President Donald Trump castigated Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, expressed her support for both the president and her husband.
Trump, who had demanded last week that McConnell should “get back to work” on health care, gave Chao time to speak to the press after a meeting on infrastructure at Trump Tower recently.
