Trump Participates in 'Made in America' Showcase at the White House

Stutterstock  well

So they won't be celebrating any of their products this week because they don't meet America's "world standard for quality and craftsmanship". By highlighting the state of manufacturing the USA, advisers told The Post that he hopes to "substantially reduce to corporate tax rate".

President Trump declared it "Made in America" week - but White House spokesperson Sean Spicer struggled on Monday to answer whether Donald and Ivanka Trump brands will stop making many of their products outside the United States. "Their interests were pushed aside for global projects and their wealth was taken from the communities and shipped overseas", said Helen Aguirre Ferre, White House director of media affairs.

In an effort to help support USA -based manufacturers, the Trump administration declared this this week "Made in America" week. Trump and his daughter Ivanka have been criticized for making most of their products overseas.

"Sen. Chris Van Hollen, Maryland Democrat, said it was the "‏height of hypocrisy to be rolling out "Made in America" week when Trump's businesses have been producing most of their products overseas".

Trump will sign a proclamation designating May 17 "Made in America Day".

"This week the Trump administration will honor the unbelievable American workers and companies who have products that are made in America", Helen Ferre, the White House's director of media affairs, told reporters at a briefing here Sunday.

"We're going to get that done and I think we're going to surprise a lot of people, but (the Republican leglislators are) pushing very hard", Trump said. A recent Washington Post investigation revealed that Ivanka's company outsources production to factories in Bangladesh, Indonesia and China.

The White House's new theme is already taking flak from those pointing out the Trump Organization's business history.
