Ivanka and 45 have business interests there. Note Merkel didn't get the Marlago treatment. In fact I think he was rude to our European ally.

Or PC do we say asians now? My step father was oriental.

So here's one explanation but in a nutshell, Oriental is outdated because it's a general term that diminishes the people, even if "technically" they are part of it.

Apparently it is all due to the Politically Correct haters running out of causes to hate:....

The term oriental stands for things and people from the east, particularly east of Europe. It is a term coined by Europeans, to refer to the exotic and mysterious cultures and people from the East. The term is opposite of occidental that refers to things and people from the west.

However, human rights activists in America consider the term oriental to be a loaded word having bad connotations. They also consider the term to be Eurocentric.

It is Eurocentric!!!!
Thats bad.....

You could try for a better explanation....
