On Fox, Charlie Kirk downplays white supremacy in America because “Asian-Americans are actually the wealthiest” income group

Kirk: “Why is it that Asian-Americans are actually the wealthiest and highest incomes of any group in America? I mean, so that would actually go against the idea that the entire country is built on white supremacy”

MARTHA MACCALLUM (HOST): We have had over the last decades generations of people who have come to this country, immigrants who have made this country very strong, and I know there's a huge debate right now about legal immigration versus illegal immigration in this country. But their whole message was you know to become American, to embrace what the country offered, you know, to aspire to have the American dream for you and your family. And it feels like, you know, there's this feeling of, you know, just having to sort of put on the mantle of shame about so much, Charlie. 

CHARLIE KIRK: Yeah, so the one thing I'll say is this, if this was really true, why is it that Asian-Americans are actually the wealthiest and highest incomes of any group in America? I mean, so that would actually go against the idea that the entire country is built on white supremacy still. And again, the U.S. Constitution was not written in Korean, it wasn't written in Chinese, but it shows that any individual, any person that comes here with hard work and entrepreneurial attitude can succeed. And I'm so, I'm really depressed to see that a whole party seems to be positioning away from that.
