MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement condemning a recent comment by a reporter:
“This past weekend, the MNGOP & Trump Campaign hosted an Asian Pacific American training attended by more than 70 passionate and energetic Republicans looking to help re-elect President Trump and turn Minnesota red.
“Unfortunately, Wameng Moua, Editor and Publisher of Hmong Today, chose to disregard these Minnesotans’ right to organize and support the Republican Party and our candidates by comparing them to Nazis.
“The Republican Party of Minnesota has taken great strides to welcome supporters and newcomers of all backgrounds, ages, and communities into our party. We are proud that President Trump has been a leader enacting policies to lift up all Americans, hiring strategic initiative directors to work in minority communities, and working to grow the Republican Party.
“We will not stand for this language or actions against Republicans who are simply participating in the political process and making their voices heard. Mr. Moua owes an apology to the Republican Party of Minnesota, the Trump Campaign, and most importantly, the dozens of men and women who participated in this training.”
