Why Do People Want to Boycott Kroger For Electing Elaine Chao?

The disdain people have for Elaine Chao stems back to how Trump was classifying the COVID-19 virus during it’s early days. Donald Trump would go out his way to blame China for the virus any chance he got, even deeming it the “China Virus”. This led to an increase in the hate crimes and discrimination against people of Asian descent in the following months.

Since Elaine Chao who is of Asian descent was working for Donald Trump as he was marginalizing Asian people, she seen as a corrupt person by many. People feel like she should have been the voice of reason that stopped Trump from making Asian people’s lives in America harder with his public rhetoric about the origins of COVID-19. When you add up all those negatives along with her being Mitch McConnell‘s wife you have hashtag “Boycott Kroger” trending on social media.
