President Trump made a sweeping promise on Inauguration Day: "We'll comply with two easy guidelines: Buy American and rent American."
Apparently, his daughter Ivanka did not get the memo.
Ivanka's eponymous clothes line has taken in scores of shipments of Trump-branded footwear, luggage and blouses from China since her father turned President, based on an AFP report.
The "Made in China" merchandise included greater than two tons of polyester woven blouses, ,600 cowhide leather-based wallets and 23 tons of footwear.
The products have been contained in 82 shipments that handed by way of U.S. Customs between Nov. eight, 2016 — the day Donald Trump gained the presidency — and Feb. 26, 2017. The President has steadily accused China of utilizing unfair commerce practices to steal American jobs. He has vowed to punish international and home corporations that manufacture items overseas with hefty tariffs.
Final month, Ivanka sat in on a White Home enterprise council assembly the place her father mentioned "robust insurance policies" to deliver "our jobs again."
Two days later, greater than 5,000 Ivanka Trump polyester blouses arrived in Newark, N.J.
Trump has mentioned nothing about his daughter and her companions after they made their merchandise overseas.
But he lashed out at Nordstrom last month after it introduced it will cease carrying Ivanka's fashion line due to poor gross sales.
"My daughter has been handled so unfairly by @Nordstrom," he tweeted.
That was adopted by a controversial pitch from senior counsellor Kellyanne Conway, telling "Fox & Mates" viewers on Feb. 9 to go out and by Ivanka's goods during a television interview.
"Go buy Ivanka's stuff is what I might inform you," Conway mentioned. "I will give a free business right here. Go buy it at the moment, all people."
