White House press secretary Sean Spicer spoke Thursday on the rising level of incidents targeting Indian-Americans.

WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — While responding to a report’s question regarding the string of crimes committed against Indian-Americans in recent weeks, White House press secretary Sean Spicer reiterated the administration’s stance condemning such acts.

“We’ve got to continue to call it out, we’ve got to continue to root it out, we’ve got to continue to engage law enforcement, whatever is the applicable level of law enforcement depending on the event,” Spicer said during his Thursday press briefing.

He added that every American should be “outraged” and “disgusted” over the incidents, and said President Trump relayed the same message when he spoke on the Kansas shooting of Srinivas Kuchibhotla during his joint address to Congress. “[Trump] made it very clear that while certain policies may divide us as individuals, there are certain principles that can unite us,” Spicer said.

Speaking on relations between the U.S. and India, Spicer said the Trump administration is dedicated to establishing a stronger relationship with the country. A sleuth of Indian diplomats have visited the nation’s capital since the swearing-in of the 45th president in an effort to get acquainted with Trump, and Spicer said he’s been in contact with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Kansas triple-shooting has increased the amount of communication between the U.S. and India, Spicer said. Anxiety of Indian-Americans has been at an all-time high as the recent string of targeted attacks have them worried about their safety.

Prime Minister Modi is scheduled to visit the U.S. and president Trump later this year.
