A segment that aired on "The O'Reilly Factor" this week is drawing criticism for the way it stereotyped Asian-Americans.

Fox News correspondent Jesse Watters went to Chinatown in New York City to ask people on the street their opinion of Donald Trump and China-U.S. relations. He starts out by asking two women if he is supposed to bow to say hello, and goes on to incorporate a number of other stereotypes about Asian-Americans.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with Paul Cheung, president of the Asian American Journalists Association, about the segment and why it touched a nerve with so many.
