Business mogul and Republican presidential front-runner, Donald Trump, made another racist remark in a speech he delivered during a campaign rally in Iowa on Tuesday. This time Trump made fun of the negotiating skills of Asian business negotiators in broken English.

"When these people walk into the room, they don't say, 'Oh hello, how's the weather? It's so beautiful outside. How are the Yankees doing? They're doing wonderful, that's great," the presidential candidate said. "They say, 'We want deal!'" which made the audience laugh at Trump’s offending joke. Trump who is known for his remarkable negotiating skills, is consistent on his stand on the economic relationship between China and the U.S. On his Twitter he said the Chinese market and the whole Asian market are "taking the U.S. market down."

He  also made insensitive remarks about Mexican immigrants at the beginning of his campaign. Besides Trump, another candidate made insensitive remark about Asians. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Trump’s rival, used "anchor babies" to refer to children of undocumented immigrants. "Frankly, it's more Asian people," Bush said. Trump picked on Bush’s failed effort to choose a more politically correct term to refer to Hispanics and linking "anchor babies" to Asians. He called his effort “a mess” on Twitter.

The Congressional Asia-Pacific American Caucus has already addressed Bush’s comments but has not yet given their comments on Trump’s racial remarks.

"All that is accomplished through talk of anchor-babies -- be they from Latin America, Asia, Europe or Africa -- is to use xenophobic fears to further isolate immigrants. It’s time for our country to return to a substantive discussion on immigration,” said U.S. Rep Judy Chu of Pasadena, California, leader of the caucus.

Chu believes that what the country needs is an actionable plan to "integrate" the illegal immigrants in the country.
