The spread of the new crown virus was not their fault. Trump attended the new crown pneumonia outbreak conference that night and made the above statement in his opening remarks. He said Asian Americans were "amazing" and that the spread of the new crown virus was not their fault in any way. "They are working closely with us to respond to the outbreak. We will win together. This is very important."

When a reporter asked what prompted him to make this statement, Trump replied, "Because in our country, some people may say something malicious to Asian Americans. I don't like it at all."

"I won't let this happen. I just want to make it clear." Trump said Asian Americans are amazing and they love the United States.
