Trump’s ‘Made in America Week’ is a hypocritical joke

President Donald Trump just finished viewing products manufactured in America as part of a Made In America Product Showcase at the White House this afternoon. He sat in a firetruck, held a “beautiful” baseball bat, and tried out some golf clubs.

Thus begins “Made in America” week, a new Washington ritual during which a president who routinely boasts of being the best at everything admits that he is not the best after all. Because if American-made products are the best, then products made abroad, like many of Trump’s own branded products, are by definition not the best.

...

But since the Trump Organization and related companies haven’t seen fit to produce their own goods in the United States, that means either their products aren’t the best, or Trump is engaged in a craven manipulation of his fans.

Or both.


Let's see now... Trump the good ol' "American businessman"
touts American made products
whilst Trump Corp outsources abroad

What hope for US producers if...

Trump Vodka, lanched in 2006 but abandoned in 2008 - Is made in the netherlands !

"Donald J Trump Signature Collection" - Ties and Suits were made in China
(yet in 2010, “We don’t need Chinese products, the stuff that’s been sent over from China is – it falls apart after a year and a half. It’s crap.”” said he on Fox)

Showing his penchant for diversity - i guess - his shirts weren't made in China, but in Bangladesh, Vietnam ...

"Trump Home items" - vases, light fittings, furnishings were made in ...
wait for it .... China and india

It's not just the Donald !
Ivanka's 'stuff' Predominantly comes from abroad Bangladesh, China, India ....

Showcasing 'Made in America'
When the Trump's 'Make anywhere but America'

Stinks of do as i say, not as i do

It takes time to level out the hypocrisies.

At least he isn't screwing an intern in the Oval Office while his wife just smiles and nods.

Donald Trump is the president of America and unlike the last president, he was born in America.

You mean like almost every president has done... like ever. Affairs, who cares... people want action, aren't getting it at home, and it's their own damn business. Campaign based hypocrisy... now that's a different story.

eta - lest we forget Trump cheated on his wife... and also, who cares, that's the least of his problems

It's OK.

He made his money, but now it is not good for you to being up the fact that he is slightly 2 faced on the made in USA issue.

I was hoping he would be different, and I hope when we look back at his 2 year point in his first term we will see there was a method to this madness and he has changed the landscape of manufacturing here in the US.

You would think that he could start by having his and Ivank'a products actually made in America. That would show he is serious but alas it's just more lies and BS that characterizes his presidency.

You are correct, talked the talk, but not willing to walk the walk.

There is profits exploiting workers in other countries, and then bad mouthing companies that move out of the US.

I disagree with Trump on the way he is handling this issue.

That's because he's been going after his daughter for years.

All the Progs that will bash Trump for this, while supporting a do nothing. obstructive Democratic party that has done NOTHING but obstruct since Trump was elected is laughable. Perhaps if the Democrats in Congress stopped obstructing because of those evil Russian conspiracies maybe, just maybe a tax plan could be worked out to make it profitable for small businesses to start up and hire those who depend on welfare for a living so that we can start up our manufacturing base of our economy again versus this service industry which pays minimum wage to dominate? Sorry, can't help thinking outside the box here. Marxist ideology has been erased from my mind forever.



And not for nothing? Who the hell in the USA makes a Vodka that is worth drinking?

I know it's anecdotal, but every piece of Trump hats shirts, etc. I've seen in person, have been made in the USA. I've only seen pics on the internet that prove otherwise...

Makes one wonder.
