"The success of our community demands us to be active and participate in mainstream politics. It is our responsibility to strengthen the diversity of our nation," he said to American Bazaar online.

"... We should be supporting President Trump and Republican leadership in creating and promoting American jobs with a strong emphasis on balanced trade between US-Indo Pacific Region," he added.
