It was great to meet with you, @bts_bighit. Thanks for all you're doing to raise awareness around the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination.
I look forward to sharing more of our conversation soon. pic.twitter.com/LnczTpT2aL — President Biden (@POTUS) June 1, 2022
Notably, President Joe Biden talked about how this month is an important month for his country. This is because June is the month the U.S. is planning to add more attention and awareness to the ongoing hate crimes faced by Asian-Americans.
"This is an important month here in America. A lot of our Asian-American friends have been subject to real discrimination. Hate only hides. When good people talk about it and say how bad it is, it goes down. So thank you," U.S. President Joe Biden shared.
BTS' RM thanked President Joe Biden for addressing the ongoing issue. He also stated that he appreciates the president's actions to lessen the number of hate crimes Asians are getting by signing a new act into law.
"We want to say thank you, sincerely, for your decision - like such as signing the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act into law. So we just want to be a little help and we truly appreciate the White House and the government's trying to find solutions," BTS RM remarked.
Furthermore, U.S. President Joe Biden concluded by letting the members of BTS know that the amount of influence they have globally is immensely high.
"People care a lot about what you say, and what you're doing is good for all people. It's not just your great talent, it's the message you're communicating. It matters," U.S. President Joe Biden ended.
Notably, U.S. President Joe Biden also teased that more details from his conversation with the members of BTS will be released in the future.
Congratulations to BTS for reaching the incredible feat!
