Ivana Trump's made in China clothing line

NBC - Despite President Donald Trump's calls for American companies to manufacture their products in the U.S., shipments of his daughter's branded, Chinese-made dresses have continued to land on U.S. shores since he took office, documents reviewed by NBC News show.

"We can't continue to allow China to rape our country," Trump told his cheering supporters last year on the campaign trail in Indiana. "There are no jobs because China has our jobs."

Some of those jobs are apparently still filled by Chinese workers assembling dresses for a licensee of Ivanka Trump's namesake clothing line. Since Election Day, the apparel brand run by Trump's daughter has imported 56 shipments of Ivanka Trump products from China and Singapore, part of a total of 215 shipments from Asia since Jan. 1, 2016.

This is politically irrelevant, unless you reduce politics to mere pandering to the DP. The DP has a record in foreign affairs as bad as if not worse than Trump. Mere nastiness toward Trump does not help (for example) the people of Honduras. Nor does it help all those whose lives were destroyed by Bill Clinton's crime bill.
