Over the last year, the Asian-American community has seen a rise in racial abuse in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.

During a segment on “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Fox Business reporter Susan Li touched on her personal experiences with racism while responding to the surge in anti-Asian attacks to program host Charles Payne.

“Someone needs to stand up for us,” Li said. She discussed the rough week that the Asian-American community has been dealing with in the aftermath of last week’s shooting spree in Atlanta that led to eight people killed, including six women of Asian descent.

Li, who was born in China and raised in Canada from the age of two, went on to state information about the rise in violence towards those of Asian descent.

“It’s a fact that anti-Asian violence has surged 150 percent over the past year, according to one California study,” Li said. “It’s a fact that the Asian community is now fearful after these shootings, regardless of motive, and that will play out later on.” “Hopefully, there’s something coming from the White House and also some maybe something from Congress in denouncements and heightened policing would be great.”

Last week, radio host Dinesh D’Souza went after Fox News, claiming that the network is suppressing his new film called “2,000 Mules.” 

“Several Fox hosts want to have me on to discuss the movie but the network is blocking them. Incredibly a ‘news network’ is blocking coverage of the biggest news story in the country!” D’Souza tweeted

Then this past weekend, former President Donald Trump went after Fox News, saying the news outlet isn’t what it used to be in his eyes. Trump spoke out against Fox News, arguing that the network “won’t even show or discuss” the 2020 election fraud documentary “2000 Mules.” 

“Fox News is no longer Fox News,” Trump posted on his TruthSocial account. “They won’t even show or discuss the greatest & most impactful documentary of our time, ‘2000 Mules.’ The Radical Left Democrats are thrilled – They don’t want the TRUTH to get out.”

Furthermore, the former president recommended that CNN “go conservative” and take Fox News’ place as the go-to channel for those looking to consume a new conservative media outlet. 

“CNN should go Conservative and take over the greatest, strongest, and most powerful BASE in U.S. history,” Trump stated. “Nobody is watching CNN’s Fake News now so, as I say, what the hell have they got to lose? Sadly, they’re too stupid to make the change!”
