Utah’s Fil-Am AG stumps for Trump at historic AAPI forum

LAS VEGAS – The presidential forum held at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas was the first of its kind bringing together all four major presidential campaigns to address issues facing the Asian-American community.

It was held by the Asian American Journalist Association (AAJA) and Asian Pacific Islander American Vote (APIA Vote).

Asian-Americans are seen as a growing voting block that could swing this year’s election in key states.

The Trump campaign sent Fil-Am Attorney General of Utah Sean Reyes to speak on behalf of the Republican presidential candidate and to clarify his recent comments that offended many kababayans.

“I want to clarify, first of all, some comments that Mr. Trump made about the Philippines, and being Filipino,” said Reyes. “Those issues are near and dear to my heart. What Mr. Trump was trying to communicate–and I have full authority to make this clarification–is that he welcomes law-abiding Filipinos who want to come and have a better life and better opportunities, whether they want to live here or go back to the Philippines. Send money back to their families there. He welcomes them.”

Former President Bill Clinton defended his wife Hillary on the on-going issue of trust based on the email scandal during her time as Secretary of State.

“First of all, the FBI director said, when he testified before Congress, he had to amend his previous day’s statement that she had never received any e-mails that are classified,” said Clinton. “They saw two little notes with a “C” on it. This is the biggest load of bull I’ve ever heard.”

Libertarian candidate and former governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson wants to sway Republicans who do not agree with Trump to his ideas of small government.

“Fiscally conservative, in our case socially liberal, what we libertarians like to say is it doesn’t matter what you are socially as long as you don’t force it on other people meaning always come down on the side of choice,” said Johnson.

And Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein said that the next president should consider foreign policy that focuses on climate change rather than combat.

“Looking at the crisis of climate change especially for the Pacific Islands and the Asian nations who are so much in the target hairs especially not only the storms that are hitting the Philippines but the sea level rise and so much of the Asian nations are living on vulnerable coastlines but also to look at these expanding wars that there are no end to,” said Stein.

APIA Vote says that while the Asian and Pacific Islander community has been historically marginalized they now toward becoming the margin of victory for the next president of the United States.

    Bill Clinton should stop blaming the FBI email investigations,FBI did their best to cover-up Hillary’s email. New email scandals are being exposed by HACKERS including Nancy Pelosi cell phone,members of the DNC, George Soros, and Clinton Foundation. FBI want to investigate Clinton Foundation, is it $2B or $5Billion collected by the Clinton, but DOJ denied the investigation. Watch YOUTUBE; “Clinton-Cash”.
