Donald Trump, who has repeatedly accused China of stealing manufacturing jobs from the U.S., acknowledged today that an array of Trump-branded clothes, accessories and other products are made in China.

The real estate and casino mogul, who is considering a run for the Republican presidential nomination, blamed China for the fact that Trump ties, Trump cufflinks and even Trump teddy bears come with a "Made in China" label.

Default Nothing like putting a man of principles in charge.

Or as Krusty the Clown put it:" They drove a dump truck full of money up to my house! I'm not made of stone!"

At least Palin and Bachmann have been given a rest.

I actually get the point Trump is making. I doubt the lefties will. They aren't very good at introspection when it comes to economic policy and the roll Progressivism has played in NAFTA and such.

To the OP. How many anti Trump threads have you started? You seem consumed with bashing Donald Trump. I went shopping today in several different department stores, some very high end. Guess what? Not one item I looked at was made in the USA. I went to Sam's club and bought some clothes from a trunk show. The clothes were made in Canada. What is a shopper to do...........or a manufacturer since NAFTA?

Then why doesn't he start his own manufacturing company here, instead of bulldozing the Scotland coast to build a golf resort.

Ah! I get it. Not enough profit.
