I just want the President to keep our country running in the right direction. I don’t care about his personal business or personality. I am grateful for having someone put America and American citizens first for a change.
In the September ruling, FTC Commissioner Rohit Chopra argued in a dissenting opinion that the three companies should have been forced to pay.
“In cases involving egregious and undisputed Made-in-USA fraud, I believe there should be a strong presumption against simple cease-and-desist orders,” Mr. Chopra wrote. He said the commission should require more painful remedies such as a payments equal to their ill-gotten gains, consumer refunds or admissions of wrongdoing.
“Every firm needs to understand that products labeled ‘Made in USA’ should be made in the USA, and that fake branding will come with real consequences,” Mr. Chopra wrote.
The prevailing commissioners explained their decision by saying that the relatively small number of second violations shows that the current system has served as a deterrent.

I could really use some help on this matter. There probably is no way I can ask this without sparking a huge rant fest debate, but I am just looking for facts. I am Canadian and have been debating matters of impeachment with a friend of mine who has a history of working in finances. I've shot down many of his points for impeachment but there are a few which I can't. These are points to do with finaces, and as I do not trust the mainstream media (esp. where it concerns Trump) I have no idea where to fact check his claims.
His claims are: 1.Trump has intentionally bankrupted his companies to wipe debts free. 2. He was supported through bankruptsy by a Russian bank owned by Putin. 3. He has passed bills which allow banks to loan greater sums, thus creating a 'false' economic boom. 4. He has passed laws whereby products say 'Made in America' when, if you check the product number, they were actually made in China, etc.
I am only interested in attempting to fact check these specific claims. Any credible non-partisan sources would be appreciated.
