The em­peror has no clothes (that are “Made in Amer­ica”)

The Denver Post - - NEWS - Re: Mer­rill Leav­itt,

“White House un­veils ‘Made in Amer­ica’ week, though many Trump prod­ucts are made over­seas,” July 16 news story (on­line only).

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump de­clares this to be “Made in Amer­ica” week. How can he make this dec­la­ra­tion with a straight face when he and his fam­ily own busi­nesses that have con­sis­tently prof­ited from over­seas manufacturing of prod­ucts that range from steel for build­ings to ap­parel for re­tail sale?

His dec­la­ra­tion in­cluded no men­tion of chang­ing his own fam­ily’s out­sourc­ing prac­tices. This level of hypocrisy is both shock­ing and in­sult­ing. Does the pres­i­dent think we don’t no­tice, or does he truly be­lieve there is one set of stan­dards for his fam­ily and a dif­fer­ent set of stan­dards for the rest of us? Nei­ther is ac­cept­able.
