Made in America or China or Bangladesh

It’s Made in America Week at the White House.

Hahahahahaha I know. What about all those Made in China labels on Ivanka’s merchandise? I think we’re not supposed to ask.

President Donald Trump celebrated U.S.-made products on Monday, and in doing so he brought renewed attention to his own family’s production and sale of goods made overseas.

“We want to build, create and grow more products in our country using American labor, American goods, and American grit,” Trump said at a White House event touting products made in all 50 states, kicking off the administration’s “Made in America”-themed week.

“We are going to put that brand on our product because it means that it’s the best,” Trump added. He then signed an executive order aimed at better supporting American companies and protecting U.S. workers.

So if it’s the best why doesn’t Ivanka get her merchandise right here at home?

But White House aides have struggled to answer questions about the Trump Organization’s and Ivanka Trump’s decision to manufacture a number of products overseas in places like China and Mexico.

Ahead of the event, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said it would be “inappropriate” to comment on how the president’s actions could impact affect Trump’s or his daughter’s business, but indicated the administration is working to bring more manufacturing back to the United States.

Inappropriate? Says who? I think it would be highly appropriate. If I were there I would ask why Trump thinks it’s appropriate to talk hot air about Made in America when he and his gene-carriers go elsewhere to buy Stuff.

The Washington Post reported last week that Ivanka Trump relies “exclusively on foreign factories” to manufacture her products. A spokeswoman for her told reporters Sunday she would get back to them about whether the week’s theme would encourage the first daughter to move her clothing line to the United States.

Yeah they’ll get back to them in ten or twenty years, they promise.
