Elaine Chao, who was the former Transportation Secretary under President Donald Trump, criticized the media for repeating the racist and offensive names he had used against her.
During an interview with CNN, she criticized the media for repeating the racist and offensive names that Trump had used against her.
"She stated that if the word used by Trump was the n-word, the media would never repeat it. Instead, they continue to repeat his racist taunts. Chao also said that Trump was trying to get a rise from the people by saying outrageous things."
Trump's latest outburst against Chao, as well as her husband, came after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supported a bill that would fund the government for a year. The spending bill, which also included several provisions sought by Democrats, was required to avoid a shutdown.
The spending bill included several provisions that were sought by Democrats. These included an increase in military aid for Ukraine, the renaming of federal buildings after prominent congressmen, and more.
In a post on his social media platform, Trump criticized McConnell for supporting the spending bill. He also claimed that the Senate majority leader had a conflict of interest due to his wife's relationship with China.
Trump referred to Chao as "Coco Chow," which he had used against his former Transportation Secretary. She was born in Taiwan.
Since he left the White House, Trump has continuously criticized both McConnell and Chao. He took particular issue with the Senate minority leader's rebuke of Trump's actions following the Capitol riot.
