US election: A generational divide over Trump among Vietnamese-Americans – BBC News

For many Vietnamese refugees who settled in the US after the Vietnam War, the Republican Party has stood for anti-communism and freedom.

Research suggests Vietnamese-Americans are more likely to support Donald Trump than any other Asian-American community.

As part of the BBC’s coverage of different communities in the US election, we look at how younger Vietnamese-Americans are seeing things differently – and are attempting to persuade their parents to reconsider.

    It's because the Americans helped install a Catholic fascist in South Vietnam, and then assassinated him and his brother, with the help of his wife, and some generals, fun fact JFK, was then assassinated just 6 days later.

    I feel like he changed his vote just because he really doesn't care about what his one vote will do in the end. The one thing that will make his daughter happy is voting for Biden so he let her think she convinced him. He doesn't have much reason to stand his ground for Trump. When she showed him a 20 page PowerPoint, he wanted his daughter to feel a sense of accomplishment, and that mattered more than a presidential preference.

    The Elite remain desperate to regain control. I wonder if the Americans will stand up like the British did or fall back into line like good little sheep.

    Same with Cuban Americans. The older generation is extremely Conservative and Republican. The younger generation has been indoctrinated by the educational system.

    Democrates rhetoric right now is the same as communism that these people fear, so they dont vote for them. They have seen the warning signs before and they see them again. The uneducated youth should listen to them, not insult them because they were forced to live in a jungle and in their opinion dont know any better. Not shocked at all this came from tiktok

    Man , America will become communist if Biden gets elected at least with Trump you can look at the flag without fear of reproach, there more to all this if you get two elder statesmen with lots of fingers in different pies.

    That's right they teach Marxism in school and socialism is taught the young generation but I bet the actual results of communist societies are not taught such as what her parents experienced at the hands of a serious communist dictator. As well she probably onvinced they with information from Fake media. Let these young people get their communist society and maybe then they can change their minds asbrlyo what it is really like to live under communist rule. But let's hope that they don't otherwise she may just as well suffer like her parents did.
