Trump Clothing Line Made in China AND Mexico

As Donald Trump continues to rail about the evils of China and Mexico taking away American jobs because American companies build factories there, his hypocrisy comes out more and more. A few weeks ago it was revealed that the dress shirts for his line of clothing were made in China:

And now we know that his suits are made in Mexico:

But he’s totally absolved of this hypocrisy, he thinks, because he wasn’t happy about this fact:

trumpexcuse

Let me translate that for you: If I had ensured that they were made in America, it would have cost more to make them and that means I would have made less profit. And since $4 billion is not enough for me, I decided to do the very thing I am now claiming is destroying our economy so I could make even more money. Gosh Donald, that’s a brilliant excuse!

    He still can’t seem to figure out that people are cutting ties with him, not because they are pro illegal immigration, but because they are against bigots who say that most Mexican immigrants are criminals who want to rape people.

    Trump’s got the right idea: don’t make them over there with foreign labor, make them over here with foreign labor. Like fruit.

    And in breaking news:

    Donald Trump declares:

    ‘Chinese are buck-toothed, slanty-eyed poopy-heads who like eating puppies and smoking opium. I’m sure one or two might be possibly, kinda OK, maybe, but I wouldn’t let ’em use the Don’s bathroom, even if they were.’

    Is shocked when Chinese cease to work in Trump operated sweat-shops!

    Plus, the Mexican suits were awful. Sure, I saved some money, but every time I opened a pocket a rapist would pop out.

    well, tragically, Trump’s standings in the polls for the Republican nomination seem to improving, compared to everyone but Jeb.

    the rumor that he is now in 2nd place is something of an exaggeration, however – it is only true in two polls. Overall, he seems to be in 7th, behind Huckabee and Paul.

    But, he’s averaging 19.6 behind Clinton And perhaps there’s a decline in his standings compared to Clinton.

    Polls aren’t too reliable at this stage, and I don’t know to estimate trends from polls done by different pollsters using different methods, and what really matters is polling in swing states, not nationwide numbers.

    Now here’s Harry Enten at fivethirtyeight:

    Most Republicans are more anti-immigration than their party’s official stance. In a May 2015 Pew Research Center survey, 59 percent of Republicans said their party has not done a good job representing their views on immigration. That number spikes up to 65 percent among Republicans who do not believe that immigrants who entered illegally should be allowed to stay in any fashion. In other words, the subject is the perfect springboard for an outsider presidential candidate like Trump to talk to these voters.

    Perhaps Trump’s racism is winning him support in the GOP nomination game, but losing him the final election. Much as with Republicans in general on many other issues.

    Laugh it up. Currently the Donald is running 1-2 with Jeb Bush, depending on which poll one reads.

    Considering that the people who are responsible for so many jobs going overseas are the ones he sells condos to, has joining his golf courses, and wants to have vote for him, I don’t know how he’ll manage to get jobs back to your country other than abolishing the minimum wage, smashing unions and demolishing work place regulations.

    Oh…

  • Crudely Wrott, lurching towards recrudescence

    Now hold the phone, buckaroo. You say if you were president you would make the world over to include manufacturing your clothing line in America? Really? With that qualification? If you were president? Do you really expect me to eat that shit up???

    You are a lying ass, Donald.

    As president you would have to not only fight for funding to establish the factories and pay high dollar American employees, you’d also have to change the very nature of international trade and that would take years. Mighty tall order for such a small man.

    As a private citizen worth (how many, you say?) billions you could just haul off and do it in a week and have done with it. Damn the cost and the rules; you are the whatchamacallit and you have dollars to burn so what the hell is stopping you? Oh, I remember now, self aggrandizement and imposing the weasel on your head on all of us.

    Enjoy your several hundred votes come November next year. A number that will most likely reflect the number of your fellow money worshiping toadies/(oh, fill in the blank).

    Damn right I’m laughing, I’d love to see Trump get the nom. It’d be a defeat of epic proportions for the GOP.

    Trump correctly identifies the cause of our immigration problem as a border that is too porous, and is the only candidate with the vision to build a smart wall that can filter out Mexican rapists, yet still allow their wool suits to pass through unimpeded.

    Most native Americans would agree.

    Trump is the anti-USA candidate! Back to Europe all you illegal immigrants!

    By the way, I love when people from Texas complain about illegal immigrants. The government of Mexico circa 1800 would have some amusing commentary about illegal immigrants crossing the Mexican border.

  • sugarfrosted

    No, you see Trump is forced to outsource his labor. Having a $140 profit margin isn’t enough, how can he live like that? He needs to have a profit margin of 99% or else he will starve. It’s all you liberals faults for enacting worker protections! s

    Nah, that’s the boring old New Math. Using the Teh Advanced Donald! Arithmetic!©™®♠þ (Ta!Da!©™®♠þ) he needs a profit margin — expressed in that old boring New Math — of at least 497%. This leads to a desirable state called “multiple bankruptcy”. Much more fun than calculus. Or logic.

    So what? Last presidential election had every clown in the happy-go-round in the lead at one time or another. They don’t last long.

    Besides, the election is more than a year away, how can you people stand such a long torrent of bulshit? Why don’t you do like every other country and limit you campaign to a month or two before the real election? (that was rhetorical btw)
