Made in America Week move fires back on Trump

America Week

United States of America President Donald J. Trump is all set to declare this week as ‘Made in America Week’ in an effort to promote the products that are manufactured in the United States of America. Trump criticizers have not spared him this time either. All Trump-branded products have made their way under scrutiny by them as most of them are manufactured overseas and not in America.

Donald Trump’s own brand of clothing has many items on its roster that are made in Mexico and China, and during his presidential campaign in 2016, the use of steel and aluminum from China by Trump’s company became quite the topic of controversy. It has also been reported that the fashion line run by Ivanka Trump, the First Daughter and special advisor to the President of the United States of America, contains items that are made in countries like Indonesia, Bangladesh, and China, where labor is available at cheaper rates, thereby maximizing profits.

When the White House spokeswoman Helen Aguirre Ferre was asked on Sunday if Donald Trump would push Ivanka to make those products in the United States during the ‘Made in America week’, she deflected the question telling the press correspondents that the White House would get back on that.

While the press may be waiting for the facts and statements, critics on the internet spared no time to take a toll on the Trump clothing, both Donald’s and Ivanka’s. A user asked if they would announce a ‘Not Made in America Week’ to showcase the Trump line of clothing while Howard Daniel Pfeiffer, Senior Advisor to former President Barack Obama, tweeted that it was too bad that they couldn’t show any products made by the Trump family. Scores of pictures of Trump products made their way on Twitter, all displaying tags of ‘Made in China’ or ‘Made in Mexico’.

Shannon Coulter, an American activist who launched the GrabYourWallet movement to boycott the Trump-products, tweeted that the White House apparently announced the ‘Made in America Week’ to celebrate their home-grown fabrications. Another user tweeted that the only thing that the Trump administration has made in America is a mess.

Here are some of the tweets:
