Trump's 'Made in America' week is already failing and it's not even Tuesday

Trump's 'Made in America' week is already failing and it's not even TuesdayDonald Trump, who loves nothing more than themed weeks, would have been far more successful had he run for president of my middle school student council than president of the United States. Alas, here we are smack dab at the beginning of "Made in America" week and already, the backlash has begun. Maybe he just needs better posters? SEE ALSO: Shiny objects foreign leaders are using to distract Trump so he doesn't destroy their world The President is supposed to host a "Made in America" product showcase and deliver a speech enjoining companies to produce more at home. But Trump has come under highly understandable amounts of social media fire to this whole "Made in America" week when products from his an his daughter's companies aren't actually made in America.  Trump's ties, for example, have been made in countries where production costs are low, including Bangladesh, China, Medico and Indonesia, for years. And everyone was very excited to bring it up:  Maybe during Made in America Week we can hear from U.S. steel workers who were screwed by Trump for years as he bought metal from China. — Matt McDermott (@mattmfm) July 17, 2017 Asked if “Made in America” week includes commitment by Trump Org or Ivanka brand to produce in USA, WH says "we’ll get back to you on that." — Philip Rucker (@PhilipRucker) July 16, 2017 Apparently the White House announced this 'Made in America' week. Must be because of all the home-grown fabrication they do. #GrabYourWallet pic.twitter.com/QgR5N5oYEM — Shannon Coulter (@shannoncoulter) July 17, 2017 Will they also hold a not made in America week to showcase all of the Trump family products? — B Cohen (@bjcohen76) July 16, 2017 Happy #MadeInAmericaWeek @IvankaTrump @realDonaldTrump #IvankaTrump pic.twitter.com/TzQwxESBUi — beetinik (@Beetinick) July 17, 2017 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. https://t.co/R86Pt7qud4 — Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) July 16, 2017 The W.H. just unveiled Made in America week.Most Trump products are made in a dozen countries that aren't the U.S. https://t.co/jsPm46zVjf — Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) July 16, 2017 A recent
Washington Post investigation found that products from the Ivanka Trump brand were routinely manufactured in countries like Bangladesh, Indonesia, and China, where labor protections are poor. Ivanka failed to meet basic apparel industry standards, which critics have derided are already low enough. The company was further accused of failing to monitor its suppliers, who are supposed to protect workers from physical abuse and child labor. Can we please move onto the next themed week already? I've been waiting for Pajama Day or at least Twins day for sixteen years now, and it's getting kind of old. WATCH: Watch this team rescue an elephant that was swept into the sea
