Trump, Despite His Rhetoric on China, Manufactures His Clothing Line There
Donald Trump has emerged in recent years as the nation’s foremost China basher, going after the Asian superpower for undervaluing its currency and for taking American manufacturing and jobs. So it’s at least ironic — and at most an example of gross hypocrisy — that Trump’s own line of men’s wear, the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection, is manufactured in China.
I discovered this after walking from Salon’s offices to the large Macy’s in midtown Manhattan, where an entire section is devoted to the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection of suits and ties. This particular corner of the store is decorated with an oversize portrait of Trump; the line promises to provide “the pinnacle of style and sophistication” and “the necessities to be boardroom ready all of the time.”
Funny, considering he’s just said that China is Raping This Country.
