Inflammatory comments by US political figures, including a former state governor, have been condemned amid a sustained increase in violence against Asian Americans.

Mike Huckabee, who was Arkansas' governor from 1996 to 2007, is the most-high-profile figure attracting criticism in the latest crop of public comments fanning anti-Chinese sentiment in the United States.

Aside from political players, Cornell University has come under fire for linking allegations of Chinese human rights abuses to a decision to back away from cooperation with a Chinese university.
