According to The Blaze, California Rep. Ted Lieu said former President Donald Trump is to blame for the tragic shooting in Atlanta, Georgia in which eight people that worked at predominantly Asian spas were killed because he blamed Asian people for the coronavirus pandemic while in office.

“6 of the 8 murder victims in the Atlanta area mass shooting are Asian women,” Lieu tweeted. Was this a hate crime? We need more evidence. But we do know the alleged murderer targeted three locations where the victims would disproportionately be Asian women.”

“The former President used racist phrases like Kung Flu that inflamed discrimination against the Asian American community,” he added. “Officials that continue to use ethnic identifiers in describing the virus are part of the problem. Please instead be a part of the solution. #StopAsianHate.”
