Sounds like more emotional news reporting from women who are jealous that Ivanka is hotter and smarter than them.


The hefferting post, is like a punk who keys nice cars because they can't compete.

Gross, unhappy feminists with a Facebook podium.

You can thank Nixon for that. Ditching the Republic of China for the Communists, creating EPA so it becomes expensive to make in America.

It's the hypocrisy.

The headline is a huge lie because it was 50 tons over the course of several months and none of it was during the actual Trump speech.

The mainstream media, including Huffpo, attacked trump with "fact checkers" saying nobody was actually killeed during Obama's speech but failed to report that it is a fact that two people on average are killed in chicago per day.

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".


Trump says a lot of false things, fact checking seems to be his achilles heel. Well... that and his Twitter tantrums.

did he say he'd move his companies back here if he won?

if so, I hope republicans hold him to that.

See that's better.
At least you gave some information to we can check on.

Just getting tired of seeing posts or threads that appear negative towards Trump and someone popping in bring up fake news, Obama or Clinton as a rebuttal.

FAKE HEADLINE!

FAKE NEWS!

None of it was shipped during Trump's speech.

It was over the course of months.




More than two tonnes of ladies' polyester woven blouses, 1,600 cowhide leather wallets and 23 tonnes of made-in-China footwear were among at least 82 such shipments that passed US Customs -- almost one per business day -- from Trump's November 8 election win through February 26, records showed.

That's not how it works. If your competitors earn more profit than you do by using cheap Chinese materials, then they can expand faster than you and take up your market share and before you know it you'd be bankrupt. That's why Donald Trump had to use Chinese steel for his buildings.

Changing trade laws requires Congress approval. Guess whose pocket Congress is in? China. Congress will never vote for a 35% import tax.

The OP is a bit too emotion to handle that revelation, it means his attack on Trump will be null and void.

Great straw grasping thread, thanks for the laugh.

youre welcome

for the record i copied the headline as it was.
i am not really concerned with if the stuff came in during the speech or not.

what rubs me the wrong way is how he preaches buy american and so on yet he and ivanka get their product made elsewhere.

I think the OP misunderstood what Donald was saying. He didn't mean buy from American factories. He meant buy from Americans. Ivanka is American.

It is not HiS product.

Trump has no interests or control over Ivanka's company.

The market and economy have been rigged over the course of decades to make it impossible to compete unless you have crap made overseas.

Trump cannot be expected to turn that around in just two months.

*You're

I preferred the image of a tough tattooed man wearing awesome shades. It "gave" the impression of a tough man, but the posting came off as a 10 yeah old child.

Buy American! You see, common sense tells us that these are campaign promises that he seeks and will instill. OUR president has barely been in office and so something called a "transition" has to take place and instill these ideals.

So what if Ivana got items placed through China? Remember, there isn't any wrong with wheeling an dealing in china, business as usual. The goal of OUR president is to insure major manufactures will hire more Americans and build here. Even the import export odds in other words. Nobody is saying, "cut them off!!"

I have to admit, this isnt a presidential or party deal, rather us CITIZENS who buy "cheap". We, as a society must introduce culture that would promote homeland products.

In a free market competition, all competitors do exactly the same, because anyone who does different and earns less profit goes bankrupt. That's why all gas stations charge exactly the same gas prices.
