The campaign says that “all of our merchandise is 100% made in the USA.” FULL QUESTION. There are several posts on Facebook purportedly showing While pictures, videos and interviews with factory managers show that factories in China are producing banners supporting Trump ’s reelection

The Trump Organization launched Trumpstore.com and sells a $32 Trump Golf hat made in Bangladesh and a $25 faux gold bouillion “TRUMP” coin bank made in China.

The Trump Organization is still owned by the president and is managed by his sons, Eric and Donald Jr. (who promoted the opening on his Facebook page). It appears then that Trump is profiting off of foreign-made goods despite his promise to put “America first” when it comes to manufacturing.

Myanmar and Bangladesh sign deal to return Rohingya refugees

  Myanmar and Bangladesh sign deal to return Rohingya refugees Myanmar and Bangladesh signed a deal on Thursday paving the way for the possible repatriation of Rohingya Muslims who have fled violence in Rakhine state, officials said, as global pressure mounts over the refugee crisis. More than 620,000 Rohingya have poured into Bangladesh since August, running from a Myanmar military crackdown that Washington said this week clearly constitutes "ethnic cleansing".

While President Donald Trump once said that China is “raping” the US in trade, it seems his own company is contributing to what he view as “unfair” As first reported by The Daily Beast, the Trump Organization’s website is selling golf caps from Bangladesh with the company’s branding stitched

“Even though he’s taken some steps to separate himself from his business, we know that he can still receive reports about the Trump Organization and that he can directly profit from the sale of those goods,” said Larry Noble of the Campaign Legal Center, an ethics watchdog group in Washington, D.C.

Trump was criticised during the presidential campaign for bashing Mexico and China for “stealing” U.S. jobs even though his ties were made in Mexico and he applied for trademarks in China.

Moving into the White House hasn’t changed things though. While the Trump Store website registered by the Trump Organization in 2004, it only directed visitors to the shopping section of the website for Trump Tower in Manhattan until May 2017.

Trump shirts were made in China , Bangladesh , Honduras and Vietnam. PolitiFact Virginia found some Trump sport coats made in India. The Trump Vodka produced and sold in Israel is made from ingredients that make it kosher for Passover, which made it a popular beverage around the holidays.

And it appears that Trump would like to keep it that way. In response to repeated requests from The Nation, Trump and his businesses provided no information Previous reports have cited clothing tags and shipping records that trace the origin of Trump ’s goods to China , Honduras, and Bangladesh .

In June, a verified Twitter account for the Trump Store was established and in November the website started as a stand-alone site.  

Aside from hypocrisy, Trump has faced criticism for his foreign-business deals for another reason: the Constitution’s “emoluments clause.”

The Constitution forbids presidents from profiting off of deals made with representatives of foreign governments.  

While it isn’t illegal for the president to do business with foreign companies, Noble and others say if those companies are owned or managed by representatives of foreign governments Trump could be violating the clause. (Information about the Chinese and Bangladeshi companies responsible for manufacturing goods sold on Trumpstore.com was not available.)

Most of the concerns regarding the emoluments clause come in the form of foreign visitors to Trump’s properties, specifically his Washington, D.C. hotel.

Donald Trump Gear Is Often Made in China . But visitors to the Trump Store in the lobby of the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York City, or to the Although many Chinese - made products are sold under the Trump name, Trump repeatedly has complained about the quality of Chinese - made goods

China made no mention of cutting auto tariffs in describing the nature of the agreement between Xi and Trump , meaning it’s possible — if not likely — that Trump is lying. (The list of discrepancies in the terms of the agreement made in Argentina doesn’t end there, as Bloomberg pointed out in a chart.)

The issue is the subject of at least two lawsuits: one suit filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington alleges profits at the hotel from foreign persons are a direct violation of the emoluments clause; a lawsuit by House Democrats alleges Trump is illegally withholding information from Congress about foreign profits.

The Treasury Department has said that it has no way to identify donations made by the Trump Organization that stem from foreign profits, which the president promised to do. The organisation is not required to publicly disclose foreign profits, Noble said.

And unless the Trump Golf hat made in Bangladesh and the coin bank made in China came from companies owned or partially owned by a representative of those two governments, it is not an emoluments issue, Noble said.

“This is predominantly a political issue—how the public feels about him making money off of goods made overseas,” Noble told The Daily Beast.
