Hillary promises better deal for Asians


Washington: President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have gone all out to win over the influential Asian- American community with the Democratic front-runner promising to give them a fair and larger representation if she was elected to the White House.

While Obama listed out the steps his administration took in the last seven years for this small but influential Asian- American community, Clinton promised to give a fair and larger representation to them if elected as the US president in the November elections.

Though none of them named Republican presidential presumptive nominee Donald Trump, both Obama and Clinton referred to his divisive policies and his rhetoric against Muslims, immigrants and other ethnic minorities in the US.

At the annual gala for the Asian-Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS), Clinton said if elected to the White House, she wants more Asian-Americans to serve in her administration.
