Serious Question: did anyone's parents here actually vote for Trump this cycle and, if so, did they also call it the Kung-Flu?

My dad did. But he’s a bit mental and thought Trump was running against Obama.

Mom and dads anti CCP so they voted trump. That’s their one and only reason.

Manager 1: Biden and co take $$ and women from China (as proven in Hunter’s leaked emails and photos/videos) and once considered cutting ties with Taiwan in exchange for China’s debt forgiveness for $1 trillion in T-bond (proven by Hillary’s leaked emails) Trump put in place the harshest anti-CCP policies in decades(including trade terms to correct systemic imbalances and unfair practices by CCP, sanctions on CCP leaders and financial institutions over human rights issues in HK and Xinjiang), emphasized the importance of distinguishing between the CCP and the decent, hardworking Chinese people, and made monumental steps in improving communications and exchanges with Taiwan. See the correlation?

I voted for Biden/Harris but have friends who voted trump because they feared tax hikes. Only one of them was Asian though, rest were white. I like to believe it was for tax purposes lol or just take their word for it.

Most my viet friends had their parents vote for trump.

Worded that awkwardly sorry, they voted trump on their own.

Mines definitely did (Viet). Also they don’t believe in the virus either 🙃. Always knew my dad was a mental asshole but my mom, was shocked about her stance.

My parents did, along with majority of my friend’s parents who are immigrants

One, no

My cousin did. He's ex LEO though, that stuff gets you deep into the Trumpist mindset.

Or it could be that he just wants more funding for DHS (which is what he's said).

Viet parents voted for Trump as they are not fans of CCP. They also asked my brother and me not to vote because we were pro Biden. We voted anyways.

Kellogg added a section to the app on financial aid (no interview yet 😭)... but do you guys submit all information about your savings and assets? My income is 200k, assets at 500k and savings at ~100k... I feel like they wouldn’t give me any financial aid with those numbers so can I not report savings and assets??

My younger sibling (non-binary) graduated in spring of 2020 and has been living at home with our parents working part time with a social media gig. Before the pandemic they were also working in the service industry. They don’t drive and really struggle with remote work to the point that getting a full time remote job feels terrible for them. I know my parents have been getting more direct about telling them to get a full time job, which is obviously stressful and they don’t feel employable
