Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California has been actively calling out President Donald Trump on Twitter, asserting that he is “going after the institutions of our democracy.”

SoCal in 17 host Alex Cohen sits down with Rep. Lieu to discuss these tweets. They also talk about the tragedy of Vincent Chin and how Taiwan managed to stay a step ahead in coronavirus prevention.

Producer Esther Lee then joins Alex to talk about local efforts to raise money to support Asian-owned small businesses.
