"Mitch IS married to China”

Yahoo News reports that Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell has shared a racist slur about Mitch McConnell’s wife Elaine Chao.

Powell had tweeted to McConnell, “So @senatemajldr decided to aid and abet the biggest criminal fraud and coup in history?!”

One Twitter user responded, “Mitch IS married to China”. Powell then retweeted the comment.

Chao, the US Secretary of Transportation, is of Chinese heritage but was born in Taiwan.

Trump also criticsed McConnell on Twitter writing,  “Mitch, 75,000,000 VOTES, a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!”

After the election, Chinese American Trump supporters were using WeChat to raise funds for an election recount.

Although President Trump has since stated that the virus is “not the fault of Asian Americans”, he came under fire for repeatedly referring to the virus as “Chinese”.
