It wouldn't surprise me and I hope it's true. We do know that a number of his products were made in China, at least in the past. The fact is, a lot of people who tried not to go to China lost out on an immense opportunity to grow their business and brand. Trump has been the first leader to actually try to change the dynamic of the way business in done from the top down, so other countries including our own have a chance to compete. Trying to fight this battle with one business or brand simply does nothing.

Factory in China busy making Trump banners

This reminds me of when factories in China were making Tibetan flag during the troubles The Chinese will take anyone's money.

It does, of course, point to the blatant hypocrisy of Trump and is MAGA campaign. They just really don't give a damn. Trump ties made in China should be enough to prove the point, but it goes on and on with these people ...

MAGA trump voters don't care about Trump's hypocrisy. He can sleep with porn stars, employ illegals, make maga stuff in China, or even shoot someone on 5 th ave and still not lose any voters

Not possible. "Tibetan flag" is illegal in China. Possessing one would bring trouble to you.

And once again, the products shown by the OP are not Trump's products. He has no right to tell the business where they must get the work done. He is putting tarrifs/taxes in place that will encourage USA businesses to go somewhere besides China, but he is not a dictator.
Seems to be a contradiction here. Isn't Trump "Hereby ordering" US businesses to leave China and move manufacturing here? Voters put up with a lot of sins but hypocrisy is usually not one of them.

He cannot order them to leave, but he can set the business environment up in a way that China is no longer a competitive place to do business. That's what he is doing now with tariffs, since the Chinese refuse to work with Trump on a fair trade deal that doesn't destroy our nation's manufacturing base.

He has been vocal about telling companies to leave, but that does nothing. Unless he make a move to place an embargo on Chinese goods or something radical like that, his words have no bite. Businesses are free to continue doing business in China, but now they must also figure tariffs into the equation and decide if it's still a favorable value. For many things, it still is. For other things, there are no alternatives to Chinese made goods. That could be an even bigger problem in the future, so companies would be wise to work on a plan B.

Nah.... you guys are just legends in your own minds. Trying to cloak nut jobbery in economic and sociological terms is not the mark of high IQ or cognitive reasoning.

Someone posts a photo of Trump banners being handled by a Chinese Woman.

  • NPCs - "Orange Man Bad", "Orange Man Bad","Orange Man Bad","Orange Man Bad"
Yet Trump has nothing to do with it.



But it is a YUGE sign as to how popular Trump is.

So why does he think he can "Hereby order" a private company?
