RELEASE: Texas Democrats on John Cornyn’s Racist Comments

Austin, TX — Today, John Cornyn used racist dog whistles to blame Chinese Americans for the coronavirus. [The Hill, March 18, 2020]

Texas Democratic Party Communications Director Abhi Rahman issued the following statement:

“John Cornyn’s comments are disgusting, dangerous, and racist. Asian Americans have already been the victims of hate crimes because of Trump and the Republican Party’s racism. Instead of dog-whistling, Cornyn should do his job to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and protect families from the impending financial meltdown. Texans will vote Cornyn out in November.”
