The anti-Asian American attacks have been going on for the past several weeks, and numerous media have reported on it.

Cynthia Choi, co-director of Chinese for Affirmative Action, says advocates have found 300 news articles across the country detailing such attacks during a two-week period ending March 7. They range from being spat upon to verbal abuse (''Go back to China!''), vandalism and physical assaults.

When these anti-Asian incidents were brought to his attention several days ago, Trump was defensive and dismissive.

Perhaps prompted by a big N.Y. Times story yesterday, Trump finally came around to condemning these xenophobic acts.
