Trump Selling New Merchandise Made in China, Bangladesh
President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly attacked other U.S. companies for overseas outsourcing, is selling new Trump-branded merchandise that was manufactured overseas.
The Daily Beast notes that the Trump Organization is selling a “$32 Trump Golf hat made in Bangladesh and a $25 fake gold coin bank made in China.”
The foreign-made items are being hawked at Trumpstore.com.
The Trump Organization is owned by the president, but is managed by his sons, Donald Jr. and Eric.
The White House and the Trump Organization refused to comment about this blatant hypocrisy.
Trump has repeatedly accused China of supposedly “stealing” American jobs even though Trump has a long history of importing Chinese-made goods with the Trump name.
Trump has been accused by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington of violating the Constitution’s “emoluments clause,” which bans presidents from making money from deals with foreign governments.
