If we are supposed to buy American, then I guess anything with the Trump label is off limits?

They were asking $25 for those hats!


And it's a lot cheaper than it would have been if the caps were made in the U.S.A. They'd probably cost $50, because we don't have cheap labor.

Now, Trump can charge all kinds of tariffs, making those hats from China go from $25 to $55.

We still lose either way, because you can kiss $25 hats goodbye.

We need to learn to be more independent as a nation and less dependent.

If you are reliant upon another country to fulfill the needs of your people, then that country controls you.

If however your country supplies the needs of your people, then your country is a truly free.

The biggest mistake a country can do is become a dependent.

Trade is good, it can strengthen nations. However trade is only good if it is for wants. When you are trading for wants rather than needs, you hand over no control to the foreign nation. Instead you are each trading for mutual benefit with the knowledge that if one tries to screw the other the people will only suffer loss of wants if trade ends, and that nation will suffer only profit loss.

Trade should exist to enrich a nation, a nation should never be dependent upon it to function. The globalists want us all dependent on each other. They want things to be so entangled into knots there is no going back, so independence is impossible.

The very fact that people are scared what might happen to us if we stop trading with other nations simply demonstrates how far we've fallen. Are we really this vulnerable, and if so, how do you all not see this as a problem we need to fix immediately?

As for the Trump hats, don't buy them if foreign made, Trump will understand. He told us not to. Then again, hats are wants anyway. Do any of us actually need Trump hats to live?

I get that this is the Mud Pit, but Gawd ... that has to be the most pathetic thread start I've seen from a seasoned member in years.

BrokedownChevy, I think you might be dehydrated (maybe an electrolyte imbalance?).



Are you questioning the topic, being that Trump exclaims "Buy American" yet buys his campaign hats from Vietnam? Or are you just questioning the way he worded the OP?

It's a bit hard to "Buy American" when you don't make anything of substance any more.


Well it is a global economy, but don't tell Trump that. You'll confuse him.


You mean he'll get confused with all of his global interests?

I do love a good cinnamon roll


Pity I'd have to travel several thousand kilometers just to try your version, but I'm game!


I can ship it to you via our amazing Amazon drones! It'll take some delivery guys job, but fck it.

It doesn't even require dry ice to pack it. We produce the finest food preservatives in the world. Our quality McDonald's brand beef has proven time and time again that when combined with this special preservative blend our beef is unfazed by the socialist ravages of room temperature and lengthy oxygen exposure. It's even approved by the USDA!

Nevermind.



How dare you! Americans are fine craftsmen! Have you not seen our Subway Sandwich Artists? The finest craftsmen west of the Volga!


You mean the people from other countries that work fast food?

I try to buy American made as much as possible. But what we think of as made in America is not always made in America. They need to revise the laws that govern this, if you stick a tag on something in America, it can be called assembled in America. If the parts are imported, and it is assembled here, it is made in America.

I do think we can balance this with other nations. China can still build parts and we can refine them here and assemble things. I hate making the Chinese live in polluted air and have their water polluted just so we can get things cheaper. They are overwhelmed and poisoning their people because of us. We need to boost production of things we need here and also make things to last. If a fridge lasts you twice as long, it is worth paying one and a half times more for it. Make things right and it benefits us and the environment. For those of you who believe paying more for a fridge gets you more life out of it, think again, they have the same life expectancy most times, we are building junk and it is not the Chinese's fault, the importers want sustained business. They order it with planned obsolescence so we can have more sales jobs. Our government also agrees with this policy, we have become a consumer based economy, the government wants us to have to rebuy in a few years. That needs to change, we are destroying the ecosystem.

Most people who try to buy American made mistakenly believe they are buying things made in America. We need to fix that problem. We live in a world full of deception, the devil would have us believe a lie.

Same Source as OP

The Trump hats available for purchase on Trump's official campaign website are made in the United States and cost between $25 and $30, according to the label inside those caps.


Because vendors at concerts, rallies, festivals never offer knock-offs, huh?

Shouldn't your topic title be, "Vendors Selling Knock-Offs Don't Want to Make America First"?

I think Trumps idea is to restart the factories and rebuild them so America can produce these stupid fkn hats your making such a fuss over.

in 4 years time, yes ok you can complain the damn hats arent made in china.

but he's been in office 1 day and the hats were probably made months ago.

build a bridge get over it.. or drown in a pile of your of nonsense.

We have extremely strict rules on the down here in Oz. For an item to qualify as "Australian Made" it HAS to be, I believe, 100% Aussie made or the company using it can be fined and sued - and they do enforce it.

actually he doesn`t, did anybody even read the link

here is a quote from the OP`s source:


The Trump hats available for purchase on Trump's official campaign website are made in the United States and cost between $25 and $30, according to the label inside those caps.


The hat that was made in china is a Chinese knockoff that was bought at a truck stop in Georgia.


Rob Walker, 44, who had driven to Washington from Georgia with his wife Abby, 36, had stopped at a truck stop on the way to buy a "Make America Great Again" cap


don`t let the FACTS rain on your little I hate trump parade. you people are pathetic.
