How many places like this exist in the USA, as well as workers capable of working in these places? Hardly any, unless you count all the illegals I suppose. I know leftists think anyone can do this work, and they are right to a point. But not just anybody can make these kinds of things with speed, quickness and efficiency. We lost all that a very long time ago. When it comes to industries like these and the people interested in working in these industries, leftists have said shame on you and good riddance.

How so? They weren't commissioned by the Trump campaign. But it is a sign of his YUGE popularity.

Just because it has his name on it doesn't mean he or his businesses were the ones that placed the order for them to be made. Most likely another private company that he is not affiliated with. They probably ordered them from a Chinese factory because it's still cheaper than going elsewhere, even after the tariff.

Fact checking shows that it does not appear that the campaign ordered them. Funny though.

Trump knows damn well that his flags, hats, merchandise is made in China. His supporters like to play down his ignorance. As much attention Trump pays to negative things that are said against him he knows even if his supporters are right, we donít see Trump addressing this matter.

These items are made by a private company, not his own. Logic fail.

Aside from that, Trump and his supporters never denied where his products are made. They are made where it is most profitable to make the item, like the rest of the business world. Most people start a business with the main goal of making a profit.

Thankfully, Trump is actually making a change to the business environment, giving other nations and peoples a chance to compete. It may even lead to a resurgence of much of that work being done in America. We can only hope.
