Statement by the International Leadership Foundation

October 1, 2022

The International Leadership Foundation (ILF) proudly stands by our Honorary National Chair, the Honorable Elaine L. Chao, a two-time Cabinet secretary – 24th U. S. Secretary of Labor and 18th U. S. Secretary of Transportation – confirmed to both positions on a bipartisan basis.  She is the first Asian American woman to be appointed to a President’s cabinet in American history. Through her public service, she has become the most prominent Asian-Pacific-American of her generation. Elaine L. Chao stands foremost among those immigrants who love America, and have made America better through their hard work.

Her success is due to her own efforts, the support of the APA community, and the support of the vast majority of Americans who reject racist comments by anyone, such as those made recently by Mr. Donald Trump.
