What is QAnon?

Claim: QAnon is a conspiracy theory. QAnon supporters believe that President Donald Trump is fighting enemies in his own government who are running a child sex trafficking ring run by top Democrats.
Rating: QAnon’s claims are FALSE. It has been denounced by most Democrats and Republicans, as well as Fox News, as a baseless conspiracy theory. The FBI has called QAnon a domestic terror threat because it regularly incites people to commit violence.

Was Antifa responsible for the riots at the U.S. Capitol?

Claim: On Jan. 6, a crowd waving Trump flags illegally stormed the U.S. Capitol building, to pressure Congress to choose Donald Trump as the next president of the United States. A number of Congressmen have said that it was Antifa, a far-left ideology, and not MAGA that was responsible for the riots.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. While there are ongoing federal investigations into the individuals who participated in the attempted coup at the U.S. Capitol, the FBI said there has been no evidence that Antifa was involved. In addition, numerous eye-witness sources from both liberal and conservative outlets identified the rioters as Trump supporters.

A Message From the Team at VietFactCheck

VietFactCheck started less than 6 months ago, with the idea that it would stop on Nov. 3. Now, the site is here to stay—at least as long as misinformation continues to plague our Vietnamese-American community. As we look back on a momentous year, the entire team behind VietFactCheck would like to thank our readers for helping us reach this critical point.

Is Raphael Warnock a Radical Socialist?

Claim: Senator Kelly Loeffler is currently running for reelection to represent the state of Georgia in the United States Senate. She has claimed that her opponent, Reverend Raphael Warnock, is a socialist.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. A socialist agenda would be one that dismantles private businesses so that the government would control production. An analysis of Warnock’s policy positions shows a promise to help small businesses get federal support, letting individuals keep their private health insurance while expanding Medicaid, and negotiating for beneficial trade policies for American farmers. In addition, a coalition of 100 Georgia pastors have signed an open letter calling Loeffler’s claims, “reprehensible falsehoods.”

Did Jon Ossoff Take Money From China?

Claim: Senator David Perdue is currently running for re-election in Georgia for the United States Senate. He recently accused his opponent Jon Ossoff of taking money from the Chinese government.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. It is true that Ossoff’s television company, Insight TWI, has received $1,000 from PCCW Media Limited in Hong Kong to air one of Insight’s documentaries. This is standard practice in entertaining, where broadcasters regularly sell licenses to have their content aired around the world. It also pales to Perdue’s business ties to China. At two companies that Perdue led, he outsourced manufacturing to China, opened business offices in China, and increased the import of cheap goods from China—an economic decision that is certainly greater than $1,000.
