Hypocrisy Is Not Limited to Christians: Trump Excels

08 August 2017 | Pago Pago, American Samoa

This is "Made in America" week. It got a big launch from Trump. He told us "Made in America" is a key part of his "Make America Great Again" program. But the man is vacuous. A wind bag. A person of no substance.

Consider the facts as pointed out by Kay Wall. Almost all the stuff he sells with his name on it, including hotel occupancy abroad, plus all the hotel supply stuff such as shampoo, towels, slippers etc, as well as all of Ivanka's lines for women from clothing (China, Indonesia, Vietnam) to Jewelry (all over) are made outside of this country. NOT "Made in America."

Worse,Trump has cast companies that make goods in China and other foreign countries as economic pariahs, siphoning off jobs better left at home. Yet here is where just some of the Trump family goods come from--

- A crystal and china collection in the Trump Home by Rogaska collection was made in Slovenia.

- The now defunct Trump Vodka was distilled in the Netherlands.

- A "Trump National Golf Club" blue cotton cap sold at Trump Tower was manufactured in Bangladesh.

- The ties in his apparel collection have been made in Indonesia, Vietnam, and China.

- Some of the suits in his Donald J. Trump Signature Collection are made in Mexico.

- A trademark registration shows products in the Trump Home collection such as bookcases, picture frames, and wardrobes were made in India.

- Pens, towels, and bathrobes at Trump hotels are made in China.

- The Trump Home's mirrors and chandeliers are manufactured in China.

- Components for furniture piece such as beds and dining tables in the Trump by Dorya line were made in Germany and Turkey.

An August 2016 report by The Washington Post shows that the list of Trump products manufactured overseas goes well past the 15 products outlined above.

And it doesn't seem the family will change its practices: When asked whether "Made in America" week would be used to bring the production of Ivanka Trump's clothing line back to the United States, a White House spokesperson declined to provide an answer.

That's not a lot to ask of someone who paved his way to the White House by preaching "America first."

As Kay Wall explains, It's very "nervy" to stand up and tout the importance of "Made in America" with that record. It would be for anyone, much less the PRESIDENT. And talk about a conflict of interest!

Although I was a lawyer and practiced law with good success for thirty years, creating significant new law, I never really believed in the law, the politics of law or in the over reaching self-interest of most lawyers I met.
