(People's Daily) U.S. President Donald Trump’s speech at the White House to repeal Obamacare may irritate many Americans, but it is potentially racist moments like ignoring two little Asian girls who support him are upsetting many Chinese.

The President, who blasted the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, at the White House on July 24, met with families who described themselves as “victims of Obamacare” before his speech. A live video broadcasted by ABC News showed the president bending down to shake the hand of a white boy and then going directly to another white boy on the other side—bypassing two Asian girls standing in the middle, the only non-white representatives at the scene.


Though U.S. mainstream media has largely ignored the incident, some eagle-eyed Chinese have posted the video online, calling Trump a racist. As of press time, around 7,000 netizens have participated in a heated discussion of the incident on Sina Weibo, expressing different opinions.


“I think people are exaggerating things. It seems that the president had no intention to shake hands with anyone, but the white boy took the initiative and stretched out his hand to Trump, so it happened. I don’t think this is racism,” a netizen wrote.


But most Chinese netizens had a different opinion.


“Stop making excuses for him. Out of five kids standing in the front row, he only ignored the two Asian girls. He even shook hands with the third white boy. And besides, he is known for his racist remarks,” a netizen wrote.


“I feel sad for the poor Asian girls, as they were staring at the president the entire time, likely hoping to shake hands with him too. Maybe the president is selectively blind, or perhaps he thinks only white people deserve his attention,” said another netizen.

Trump racists for ignoring Asian girls......NO...
He is just racists.

During the first Presidential debate on Monday night, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton asked viewers to remember that her opponent had "started his career" with a 1973 lawsuit brought by the Justice Department "because he would not rent apartments in one of his developments to African-Americans, and he made sure that the people who worked for him understood that was the policy," as Clinton put it.

US President Trump intends to exhibit WHITE SUPERAMCY. Unfortunately, he forgets that Chinese helped built US railway network and other important infrastructure. He is a person who belittles himself with his inappropriate acts in public as US president. Most likely he has skin that is thicker and could not feel anything!
