What is the Allegation?
The complaint, filed in a federal court in New York on Thursday by the Chinese Americans Civil Rights Coalition(CACRC), Alleged that Trump’s use of that phrase and other similar raqcist slurs is baseless, since the origin of the coronavirus is not yet determined, And that the former President’s conduct harmed the community.
How $22.9 Million?
The CACRC iws asking that $1 be paid to every Asian American and Pacific Islander living in the US as an apology, which would total $22.9 million. The plaintiffs said they would use the money to establish a museum that will showcase the history of Asian Ameican contribution to the US
Response from Trump;
Responding to the suit, Jason Miller, senior adviser for Trump, told The3 Hill news webiste in a statement: “This is an insane and idiotic lawsuit that is specious at best, and it will be dismissed if fit ever sees a courtroom. It is a complete joke, and if I was the lawyer that brought it I’d worried about getting sanctioned.”
