But did you know that even as President Donald Trump promised to create jobs by following “two simple rules: Buy American and hire American” in his January inauguration speech, huge shipments of his daughter’s line were reportedly on the way to the U.S. from China?

More than 53.5 tons of Ivanka Trump-branded shoes, bags, and clothes were sailing to American ports in eight shipments “even as he spoke,” according to customs receipts obtained by French news organization Agence France-Presse.

President Trump promised to bring more factory jobs to this country and accused China of stealing manufacturing work. But at least one shipment per business day of Ivanka Trump’s shoes and other offerings continues to be sent from China, according to the AFP investigation, and the Global Times reported last month that a Chinese factory has already received an order for 10,000 Ivanka Trump shoes for next season.


the article goes on to say it is outsourced internationally due to cost...

i know many think huffington is fake news but i found this article interesting.

we all know a great deal of the donalds # is made over seas too.

i guess when he says buy american he means everyone else

This is one thing that does bother me. I see that all these people have made a shi-ton of $$$ on the slave labor of 3rd world labor pools. And now that it has hit the breaking point act like they are the saviors.

It isn't cost that makes them go out of the the US, it is profit. Not just good profit, but outrageous and what some would call obscene profits.

From the same hypocrites who lambasted Trump for citing the statistic that two people are killed everyday in Chicago and using that fact to make the point that "two people were killed during Obama's Chicago speech".

Seems like Ivanka Trump gets special treatment from the chicomms for peddeling their crap goods. How rich. So much for being all about being American....

Ivanka Trump is to me seeming to be more and more of a traitor than a 1st Lady that supports America.

Under the current economic policies, if you are an American business man or woman and you use American raw materials, you would not be able to compete with other American business men or women who use Chinese raw materials and therefore you would go bankrupt.

Is this how ATS works now, instead of debating the topic or disproving it, you attack the source?

Claim it is fake news or use Obama name, his admin or Clinton and you consider that a valid rebuttal?

The outrage is where the people who actually pay taxes (unlike our "esteemed" president) are footing the bill for his adult offspring to jet set around the globe raising awareness of the Trump brand, Don's own near weekly trips to the resort HE OWNS thereby having the taxpayers pay for all of the meals and room and board of his security detail to...TRUMP!

But it's okay? I guess.

im thinking it costs more to get the # made here so they get it done in china and other places to increase their profits.

it just rubs me the wrong way.
buy american
american jobs
make america great again


all while getting your # made in china for as cheap as possible to bring it back to mark it up as much as possible.

he was on tv a little more than a month ago talking about how companies that head over seas will face heavy taxes on the way back in.
i dont get why he thinks it is ok to do that to others while he and ivanka are huge offenders

ok but having a net worth of billions and being bankrupt are very far apart.

is it possible for an american company to actually get their # made here(for a higher cost), and sell it here(for less of a profit) and accumulate a net worth of only 1 billion instead of 2?

Its a no brainer to buy american. No matter the cost. American jobs create american good and people buy american. Increase foreign export tariffs and discourage consumers from buying foreign made goods.

and that makes it not fact?

Trump promised to bring jobs back( but the fine prints read 'one tax break to CEOs at a time' otherwise its business as usual: capitalism. )
