Biden and Harris to meet with Asian American leaders in Atlanta after deadly shooting
President Biden and Vice President Harris will meet with Asian American leaders to discuss "ongoing attacks and threats against the community" in a visit to Atlanta Friday, the White House announced.
Why it matters: The trip comes two days after a gunman killed eight people, including six Asian women in Atlanta. The shooting heightened existing fears of anti-Asian hate in the Asian American community.
- Biden and Harris will also visit the Centers for Disease Control to get an update on the fight against the pandemic.
