Unsurprisingly, Kimmel Finds A Lot Of Foreign-Made Trump Items, But Then Finds A More Serious Problem
A lot has been written about the fact that “America First” has not been a phrase that really applies to the Trump family business. Despite Republican Donald Trump railing about making products in America and trade deficits that he doesn’t understand, his businesses don’t live up to his rhetoric.
Jimmy Kimmel decided to have a little fun with the Trump online store for branded products. The comedian ordered a box of items to check their country of origin and found essentially nothing made in America.

But he did discover one problematic piece of info with which to have some fun. Some of the items he ordered did not have a country of origin label on them. Kimmel notes this is a legal no-no.
The late night host showed two items had no country of origin marking on them. He then walked through the law on such a violation.
Kimmel goes on to say he’ll “file an official complaint and let them sort it out”.
Donald Trump has faced scrutiny since the campaign over the many products of his not made in the U.S. The same issue has been pointed out for some of his children’s businesses as well.
It’s clear the rhetoric still does not match what they do in practice and it appears that is never going to change. But if they are going to continue these things, they might want to clean up their act if they want to avoid looking even more incompetent than usual.
