US Presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s controversial remarks that he would bring back jobs for Americans from Asians- especially India and China, have raised concerns in the Indian community in US. “His words suggest bad days for Indo-US relations. Obama too made some speeches that spell doom for BPOs. But Trump’s words are more harsh” several NRIs wrote in their blogs.
“You are seeing the stories when African-American leaders are saying, ‘my people really like Trump’ because I am going to bring jobs back from China, from Mexico, Japan and Vietnam and India…and all these places that are taking our jobs and I’m going to bring back jobs,” Trump told CNN.
“I’m going to do great with the African-Americans. African-American youth is 58 per cent unemployed. African- Americans in their prime are substantially worse off than the whites in their prime, and it’s a very sad situation,” the 69-year-old said.
His remarks yesterday came after his emphatic victory in the South Carolina primary. The victory gave him two wins and one second-place finish in the first three primaries and consolidated his front-runner billing.
