Blouses, shoes handbags : made in China
Dresses and knit tops: made in Indonesia
Suit jackets: made in USA (kidding! Vietnam)
Cotton tops: made in India
Denim pants: Bangladesh
More shoes: Ethiopia

That's Ivanka's clothing lineup. Very notable low labor wage countries. If you look at Trump properties, the story continues further.

Really, the sane thinking point we could make, is that you can actually support local brands/business AND want international trade as well. They aren't truly mutually exclusive.

Boeing Jets: Made in America

It takes a hell of a lot of clothes to buy one Boeing Jet.

Oh look ... next week is "Made In America Week" ... and the press is already onto it.

Boeing Jets: Made in America

Intel Chips: Made in America

Tesla cars: Made in America

You are right, but regarding the meme image above, the hypocrisy seems a little more ripe with the Trump's than just about anywhere else. Yes? No?

As seen on twitter: "For Made in America week, let's remember that Nixon used American labor to steal from DNC. He didn't outsource it to the Russians."
