Yet the man's merchandise is made in China. Yeah okay, "Made in America" week. I can't roll my eyes back far enough for this.

And 2 more weeks of stuff after this. Is someone scared about all this Russia stuff? Seems like he is distracting to me.


https://apnews.com/c897b16767b045edb...&utm_medium=AP

PISCATAWAY TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (AP) — Plagued by daily revelations related to the escalating Russia investigations, the White House is dubbing the coming week “Made in America week” as it tries to focus on issues that matter to the president’s base.

Speaking to reporters at a hotel near President Donald Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, White House director of media affairs Helen Aguirre Ferre said Sunday that the White House will be hosting a “Made in America” product showcase Monday featuring products from all 50 states.

The president also is expected to issue a proclamation Wednesday on the importance of making goods in America, and will travel to Virginia on Saturday for the commissioning of the USS Gerald R. Ford, a new aircraft carrier.

“For too long our government has forgotten the American worker. Their interests were pushed aside for global projects and their wealth was taken from the communities and shipped overseas,” said Ferre. “Under the leadership of President Donald Trump, not only will the American worker never be forgotten, but they will be championed.”

Trump has pledged to bring back U.S. manufacturing jobs lost to technological innovation and outsourcing by scaling back regulations and renegotiating the country’s trade deals. It’s an issue that resonates with the president’s base, and one that senior aides sought to highlight Sunday as the president spent the weekend attending the U.S. Women’s Open golf championship at a course he owns.

The effort comes amid escalating inquiries into possible ties between Trump campaign aides and the Russian government, which intelligence agencies have concluded meddled in the 2016 election in an effort to help Trump win.

But critics have accused Trump of hypocrisy when he’s pushed “Made in America” in the past because so many of the products he and his family members have sold over the years were manufactured overseas. That includes merchandise sold under his own name and his eldest daughter’s, including clothing items and shoes.

Asked whether the president would use his “Made in America” week to commit the Trump organization and his daughter’s brand to make more of their products in America, rather than overseas, Ferre was non-committal.

“We’ll get back to you on that,” she said.

And I'm still laughing he wants to do tax reform, when he can't even do healthcare. He can't do anything really. What has he done? Supreme Court pick I won't even give him. They broke the rules for that one.

Its been nothing but failures all around in this administration.

WaPo:

The first daughter talks about improving the lives of working women. Her father urges companies to “buy American.” But her fashion line’s practices collide with those principles – and are out of step with industry trends.

“Made in America week” as it tries to focus on issues that matter to the president’s base.

Most Presidents realize the night they get elected that the entire country has to become their base. Eight months later and Team Trump still doesn't understand this. It's like they think being president is just a four year extension of the campaign or something.

Empty gesture to rile up his "nationalistic" base? Will be effective strictly for that shrinking demographic. The rest will laugh at the hypocrisy.

This is just going to be another unforced error with the media talking about his families products not being made in America. I don't understand why his advisors think this is a smart move.

Because it will fuel the "the LAMESTREAM media won't give DJT his fair chance! He's trying to #MAGA, but they won't let him!" sentiment among the dumber parts of his base. Trump loves to talk about how the media never talks about all the great things he does. This is just doubling down on that mindset - which is, of course, shortsighted, like most things Trump has done.

I mean, it's not entirely his advisors' fault. Trump is just a terrible leader who won't listen to anyone and refuses to take responsibility. When you're given a piece of shit, there's only so much you can do to doll it up as a president.
